Deer on a wall : DIY

Fall is officially here.

I hate to even say it but I turned the heat on in my car yesterday and was not excited about it.

I am not big into fall décor but decided this year I would try add a little into my home decorating especially since I finally got my hands on the new Maggie Holmes “Gather” paper collection and have fallen in love.


If you follow me on Instagram you have seen this gallery wall a few times and might recognize the white deer head that use to sit inside a blank frame.  Today we are going to give that little deer a makeover.

SUPPLIES NEEDED:  Pattern Paper | Frame | Deer | Adhesive | Paint


Once you have all your supplies gathered grab your paint brush and paint your frame and deer mount. I decided to paint both of mine white .  Set your deer and frame aside to dry and grab the inside picture board from your frame.


Next we will attach the pattern paper to the inside picture board. Using the roller adhesive cover the edges of the frame and a few spots in the middle . This step will hold our paper to the matt board .  Attach the paper to the matt board making sure you line the paper straight.

Once your frame and deer are dry insert the pattern paper matt board back into your frame.  Once your fame is back together it’s time to add your deer. I used a foam double side adhesive square to attach my deer to my paper. Make sure you know where you want  your deer before adding the adhesive as you only get on chance or you might rip your paper !!!!
