Mr. LifeLoomsLarge might be a bit hard to shop for.
This year, I made the perfect gift.....completely out of recycled materials!!
Behold the cardboard deerhead, perfect for any man cave!
I printed and cut out templates (modifying the end of the antlers to make it easier for me to cut). Since I had lots of cardboard boxes around, I traced the templates on box pieces, then cut them out using scissors and an Exacto knife.
Putting the deer together was a snap. (I did cut thinner slots to fit the whole thing together, since the templates were created for foam core.)
For hanging, I just threaded a needle and put a piece of cottolin yarn (or string would be fine) through the two vertical pieces of cardboard on the back of the deer neck.
I can't help but think of other animals I could make!!
I'm so bad at keeping gifts secret, that as soon as I finished it, I gave it to Mr. LLL in a box so he could open it and laugh.
