DIY Deer Silhouette Art Tutorial-Recycled Christmas Project #2

Hi Everyone!
I hope you ALL had a happy weekend:).
It went by too fast, as always.
So much to do & such little time,
especially around this time of year.
Speaking of “this time of the year”, how are all
of you choosing to decorate your homes this season?
My style this year, I am finding
 is lots of neutrals, textures and greens.
I like to do a lot of creative things around my home
for the holidays and that can cost $$$,
so this year I threw myself a challenge.
Not only to do it on a budget but to reuse & recycle
things I already have.
So over the weekend I went shopping in my basement.
I have to tell you that I was re-inspired by
If this is offered again, sign up!!
What you spend you will save x10, at least.
Anyways, you can’t believe what I found.
And over the next few weeks
I will be sharing these projects.
Here is Recycled Christmas Project #2
 Just wanted to also share that I am an
animal LOVER.
Although this art is of a deer head,
it is a silhouette
I am embracing it’s beauty:).
And because it’s Christmas time!
 The Before
This is an IKEA frame that I had in the basement.
I popped out the glass, matte & picture
and flipped the back over to the smooth side.
Or any frame will do.
 Make sure you take off any stickers.
 Roll on your paint.
 Yes, it is a decal!
I bought it at Vinyl Vineyard, on Etsy.
I am sorry for the lighting but these were taken at night,
after my boys went to bed:).

  2. Hi Jen!
    Thanks for posting and linking to my vinyl shop! I was wondering if I could use a few of your photos for my listing? I would be happy to leave your watermark so you’ll even receive some traffic links.
    What do you think? Let me know!

  3. How did you get the paint to stick to the Ikea frame? Would you mind sharing what kind/color of paint you used on the frame? Thanks!
