Oh Deer! A Great Use For Antler Sheds This Spring!

Winter is coming to an end (in home décor world anyway) and it is time to start thinking about the decorating transition.

I have a couple of sets of antler sheds that I like to have on display, as many people do.

Deer Antler Sheds For Decorating

Not only do they reflect the area in which I live, they also have beauty within the shape, color and natural grain.  They are kind of like snowflakes in a way – so many, yet so different.

And if you are like me, you hate to put them away when spring rolls around.  Yes, they are perfect for fall and winter, but what about spring?

Well, first off, deer shed their antlers late winter to early spring so in a way, spring is the perfect time to display them – in honor of the process.

Plus, creating a home is all about using what you love and breaking “the rules” to fit your needs and wants.

So I say, keep them out.

And get creative….

Using Antler Sheds As A Wreath Stand

Yep.

Why not?

I think it is a beautiful display.

Especially with a natural boxwood wreath.

The contrast is gorgeous.

But if you are determined to put them in storage until fall rolls around, then keep in mind an autumn wreath would be just as beautiful.

I know…a lot of the same pictures.

Too bad. LOL.

Fall?

Winter?

That was so 2012.

Think green.  Think organic.

Bend the rules.
