Deer Silhouette Christmas Decor Hey, hey Crafty peeps! I’m Jessica from Mom 4 Real, and I am so excited to be hanging here with some of the coolest chicks around! I am totally obsessed with silver and white this year, and have created my version of a Winter Wonderland in my breakfast nook. Today I want to share a simple and inexpensive Deer Silhouette Christmas Decor project…

Deer Silhouette Supplies I started with a wooden deer silhouette of a deer head that I picked up for $1 at Michaels, a roll of Merry Christmas wrapping paper, some glitter, glue, ribbon and jingle bells.

Deer Silhouette Christmas Ornament Mde with Wrapping Paper I started by painting a very thin coat of decoupage on the front of the deer silhouette, then placing it face down on the back side of the wrapping paper.

Deer Silhouette with Glitter I then used a paint brush to apply glue all around the wooden silhouette, then dusted it with silver glitter. Deer Silhouette Ornament with Glitter Pretty, right?

Deer Silhouette with Bells Once all of the glitter and glue had dried, I tied 3 jingle bells with ribbon, then hot glued them to the bottom of one of the antlers…she is a doe, I guess.

Make a Deer Silhouette Christmas Ornament I hung my sweet sparkly deer close to the top of my little tree that was already decorated in silver and white!
