As you know I love working on projects for the house. Since winter is here I thought I’d get started on some winter projects for the house. For some reason I feel like antlers have a winter-y feel to them. Is it just me? I found some painted antlers on Pinterest for great inspiration and LOVED them, but I wanted to try to do something a little different and make my own DIY antlers. I had a TON on embroidery floss on hand so I just needed to go through my stash and find my perfect color combinations.
Let’s get started!!
DIY antlers supplies:
I knew exactly what I wanted to do with the antlers when I saw them on the Darice website. They just looked so cool!
Pick out some of your favorite colored embroidery floss. I picked out some Christmas-y colors and also some coastal colors to match my decor after the holidays.
Use just a dab of hot glue to get started. Then start wrapping your embroidery floss around the antler.
This is the fun part!! You can get as creative as you want with design and color!
It starts to shape up fast. Add a little more hot glue to the ends once you’re finished with each color. I had both of these done in about 20 minutes.
Just be careful, so that your embroidery floss won’t tangle. It can be a pain to untangle.
See how festive this looks! It can be a perfect winter project for the house. You can even do some pinks, white and red for a Valentines look.
These are a little bit of Christmas-y colors but I will probably keep this one on the mantel all Wwinter long.
I really think this was a cool project to work on. Something a little different then what I normally do for the house, but I’m so glad I did. Happy crafting!
