No, I haven’t misspelled the title =). A deer is what this post is about. Actually, it can be one, two or a whole lot of them, it only depends on how much you are willing to dare ;). Home Decor Ideas
Last week I was working on some small projects to sweeten my own home when I decided to go for some 3D action on my dining area’s wall. It had to be something fun, inexpensive and original, and since I’ve been really into recycling lately, the first idea that crossed my mind was using some of the cardboard boxes I have pilled up in my garage from my last moving.
After some time browsing on the internet and flipping some magazines’ pages (oh yeah, sometimes I play oldie, and do buy paper magazines – just like the feeling of having something real, touchable on my hands, although I got to confess that I always look for the search field or my mouse while away from the computer =))
Anyway, the point is that I found it! Found my 3D object (ticking all boxes above: fun, inexpensive, original, recycleble) and liked it so much that I decided to share with it you, just in case you want a deer head in your home too ;)
Usually you can find this models for sale (not very cheap, though), you can also buy a book on amazon or find it on your local library, but what the heck, today I woke up felling like giving away stuff for free. So, guess what?
Today is Freebie Day at HomeSweetener, and the first free download will be… a deer paper head! uhuuu!
They are fun, environmentally friendly and no, they are not an allusion to hunting. They are simply a fun way of cheering up your dining, living, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen… it goes pretty much everywhere. You can use them alone, in pairs or in groups, to hold scarves and hats by your entryway, or simply to decorate any corner of your home. You can use cardboard paper (raw or spray painted), or go fancy and buy some foam core and cover it (or not) with fabric, wrapping paper, self adhesive paper… the sky is the limit!
As today I feel very generous, I decided to give away not one, but two different deers, my dear!
And if you feel generous too, you can use the pattern to make the parts and wrap them beautifully in a flat package (along with the instructions, of course) to give it as a gift for a deer, ooops, dear friend =)
Are you ready, dear? Pick one (or both)!
But, what about the instructions?
Easy peasy! Once you download the pattern(s), you use them to cut out your cardboard paper or foam paper parts. Then you use the picture as a guide and match the numbers to assemble. No glue is necessary, unless you want to cover the parts with fabric or wrapping paper, then you should go for a adhesive spray.
Do NOT use scissors, but craft knife and cutting board instead, they give you a more precise result.
The patterns should be printed out in A3 format, so if you don’t have a A3 printer at home, just take it to the nearest printing store ;) – unless you want smaller deer heads, in which case you can select “print to fit” to a traditional A4 or letter format.
