Another DIY Project...Deer Head

I received my small wooden deer head the other day from Hart & Heim. If you haven't seen their site, check them out! They have some really great & unique products for the home! After getting an email from a friend about 'Dorm Decor' by Chronicle Books (Being released on March 25th) I went to their blog. Of course, I came across this perfect DIY project involving a deer head (not a real one of course, must stay Green). Anyhow, I loved it sooo much I wanted to share it case you'd rather make one, then buy one. I haven't decided if I will make my plain wooden one into a colorful piece....but it sure does look nice!
Dorm Decor by Theresa Gonzalez & Nicole Smith, makes a perfect gift for anyone who has kids going off to college.

Here's what you'll need to make this little guy below:

Deer templates
1 20″ x 30″ piece (3/16″-thick) foam core
1 6″ x 7″ piece (1/2″-thick) foam core
60″ length (30″-wide) wrapping paper
1 6″ x 7″ piece of contrasting paper
Craft knife
Cutting board
Spray adhesive
Picture-frame hanging wire

For the ENTIRE DIY Project below visit the Chronicle Books blog.

Have Fun!
