As a kid I was never much for Rudolph, enchanted more by snowmen and snowflakes, a complete fantasy in New Orleans. But as an adult, I can't seem to get enough of Rudolph's less colorful companions, especially during the holiday season. And while I thought I'd be sick of antlers by now, I can't get enough of those either. It's just enough rustic to warm my city heart.
I ordered this antler print from Natural Curiosity on Society 6 and decided to forego the traditional framing (for now). I trimmed it, mounted it on pearl cardstock, then again on a textured paper. I hung it from a vintage hanger that I found on Etsy, wired some evergreen sprigs to the hanger, then hung an air-dry clay star ornament from the branches and added a short (5-foot) batttery operated string of starry lights (you can hide the battery compartment by taping it to your wall with painters tape behind the photo or use the 3M Command Picture Hanging Strips, which I use all the time and never damage my walls).

I'm not always given to whimsy, but I love this clever interpretation of taxidermy from Jennifer Rizzo.
