Deer Antler Help

oldcrafty(8)August 15, 2010

Has anyone done or seen any unique ways of recycling deer antlers into something fun for the garden area? I seem to be getting quite a collection and they aren't very attractive piled up in a box!! I have so far cut a few and made some beads and created a lanyard for my grandson and am currently working on making a necklace with some "slices" but I have enough left over to do something for the garden if only I knew what!

I was thinking of using pieces to make a windchime. The critters such as raccoons love to nibble on them around here so I display them on the porch. :o) I've also seen whole ones displayed around a garden sign. Bear Hugs! Kirk

Do you recall seing sun-catchers? They were like wind chimes, but the strands of fishing line had prisms and clear beads, half-round marbles and especially and most beautifully, little one-inch mirror tiles glued back to back, on the fishing line - anything that sparkles and shines. The antlers could be like a large hook to hold several strands of sparkling gems.

If I were to cut up my dh's deer antlers I think we would be headed for divorce. LOL

I saw a garden doorway at a botanical garden that had deer antlers fastened around it. Looked really great!
