I Use Antlers in All of My Decorating

Christmas antler

Am I the only one who was disappointed as a kid when Gaston turned out to be the bad guy in Beauty and The Beast? Anyway, like Gaston (in so many ways, but only the good ones), I rely on antlers in pretty much all of what little decorating I do. I am, however, a pretty lazy decorator: I just stuff antlers into the Christmas tree (shown above).

If you are way, way more ambitious that I am, check out this video on how to make your own antler Christmas tree. I have a friend, a Nebraska deer guide, who used basically the same process to make his own for a whole lot less than $25K, and, I suspect, he included antlers from a few animals that were harmed (but eaten).

Got a cool antler-themed holiday decoration? Show us!
