Wallpapered Cardboard Deer Head

These blog post titles keep getting weirder. I really meant to finish this project earlier...but work was busy and life was busy and we made friends with David from Germany who stayed with us and I told myself that good friends, good food, good conversation and being educated on other countries was more important than wallpapering a deer. Amiright?

This wallpaper I found at Goodwill is so cool. I kinda want to wallpaper everything, but I began with the deer head since it was in need of color and pattern. If you want to make your very own deer head, go here for instructions and printout templates. You can also buy mine. Either or.

Next time you hear from me, I'll have most likely wallpapered an entire accent wall in our apartment or something crazy like that! Luke, if you're reading this, please don't worry. It's all in the name of art.

Happy happy weekend!

 

Anger & Fury at a Cardboard Deer Head

Just now I hurled my glue gun to the ground, gulped down the last of my red wine, and stormed out of the living room all because of an inanimate disembodied animal.

Luke started laughing at me. I said defensively, "What?!" He said "You know what. You're mad at a cardboard deer head!"

I have a confession. I'm really impatient when it comes to crafts. I take shortcuts, skip integral steps, and rush carelessly through actions that should be meticulously executed. I have no time for taping edges when painting a wall, I'd rather just freehand it. And when it comes to cardboard deer heads, well, I'd just rather be putting the darn thing together than cutting out all those pieces from a moving box with my crafting scissors.

All that to say, I was more than a little over this project by the time I finally finished it (11:15pm), and really, I'm not even finished yet. I have a final step that will take this deer head from good to OMG. Can't wait to show you tomorrow. For now, I leave you with a very smug and not-quite-complete looking deer head.
