Soooo, the whole faux-mounted-antler trend may be at LEAST 5 years old, but I'm still kinda lovin' it...especially when the "antlers" are "mounted" on neon racks and are miniature.
I pinned (On Pinterest) this photo from Furbish's accessories site to "DIY"...I'm not sure why or how, but this screamed "make something like this" when I saw it, so I did. Plus, I spent all day Sunday (WEEKEND, DING DING DING!) working in the studio on client projects, so I thought I deserved one project for me, for working on a weekend :)
I bought these little mounts from the wood section at Hobby Lobby. They were 2 for $1.00. I then spraypainted them with kelly green, orange and neon pink spraypaint that I already had. (I spray-primed them first, so that the woodgrain wouldn't show through)
Then, I used a small drill bit to drill in little holes where the "antlers" (aka sticks that I found in the yard, and cut to be all about 7" long) would go. I didn't drill all the way through, just about 1/4" deep.
To make my sticks stay in the holes, I did a little dot of hot glue into the holes. Not too much, or you'll have a big hot glue blob on there. Just a little, then rub it in with your fingers to blend it.
I drilled in little hangers on the backs:
They're hanging in our living room:
I kind of love them.
