Over the weekend I went to one of my favorite go to Christmas shops.
It's a nursery in Baton Rouge ( Louisiana Showplace Nursery) and they go all out with their designs.
It's one of those places where inspiration spills over.
While there, I spotted a tree with antlers.
Very cute but very pricey!
and the story goes....
I can make my own using wood scraps I have around the house!
So I searched for the perfect pattern and traced it onto wood.
Using my jigsaw, I cut it out and sanded it with my hand sander.
This is just the raw wood and I am so loving it.
You can't stop at just one...
These guys are addicting and so much fun to cut out.
I stained a set or two just to see how I would like them.... adorable.
Everyone here so far has voted for the stain look.
I... myself... love the look of both.
Here is just a little peek at one.
I'm saving the tree reveal for our Holiday House Walk.
This will be my 3 rd year participating in Jennifer Rizzo's tour.
If you are in need of a little inspiration, you can visit here to see last years tour.
Now .. where else can I use these cute little wooden antlers...hmmm?
I have a few ideas and can't wait to share them soon.
Have you started thinking about your Christmas decor for this year?
I have one gift bought so far.
I'm on a roll ...lol
Ps.. no reindeer were injured for this post lol
