Glittered Paper Mache Deer

Posted by on Dec 2, 2013 in Christmas, crafts | 6 comments

Are you seeing deer being used in decorating all over the place?

Are you feeling left out…

…because you’re pulling all of your Christmas boxes out of the attic…

…and your boxes don’t have any deer in them?

I was.

I like to think that I keep up with decorating trends.

I have sleds…and vintage Santas…and bright red lanterns

…but, my lack of deer was showing that I was falling behind.

Until now.

  1. Adorable deer. I knew there was something I forgot to look for at HL and Michaels the other day. I have to stay out of those stores for rest of season (well not totally).
    Your deer look so cute with the big polka dots. I’ll have to keep an eye out for them. I found so much cute stuff at $tree for decorations, my kind of prices. I spotted couple of holiday deco boxes today when I put a bag of books in shed. It was so cold out my hands were freezing, duh, forgot gloves.
    We got some groceries at City Mkt. today where I looked at bags of epsom salts, phew pretty pricey for me so I’ll wait to buy couple bags or so of faux snow at $ store. Have some faux snow in a bag in holiday decos in shed.
    I’m going to put faux snow in jars and make little scenes. Don’t know if we’ll put up a tree or not, I want to but hubs gets a tad overwhelmed. I’d love to have a small real tree for the smell in the house.
    Your decorations are all looking so Christmasy, love them. Must be fun with the kids. I miss that so much. Happy week

  5. I have been obsessed with deer at Christmas time for years. Your glittered cuties are perfect.
