Bring the Wild Home: DIY Antler CraftsCyd Converse
I think we should take a few minutes today to chat about antlers. About how they’re virtually everywhere right now and how, try though I might, I can’t seem to resist their charm. It’s something about the touch of the wild mixed with a more sleek, modern styling than what you typically think of when thinking about antlers. I just love the look! And as with any good design trend, it didn’t take bloggers long to start embracing the look and making it their own with flair. So, as I do, I went about my merry way and rounded up 10 super cool DIY antler projects, some of which use faux antlers or sheds, or others that actually use branches to mimic antlers.
