Plaid Deer Head Wall Mount

After browsing on line I found a plaid deer head that Target was selling; but the item is currently unavailable. I found this deer head pattern Here I made some changes on the pattern. I really liked how it turned out.

 like you can see in the picture, I made some changes on the pattern. I just added 1" more around the line of the middle of head pattern. 

 I made my antler pattern  longer.
And placed a piece of cardboard on the back of the deer to mount it better on the wall.
The tutorial on the page where I found the pattern is really helpful on the sewing part, but I found out in the process of making this project that inserting wire in the antler helped shape the antler. I inserted 2 wooden sticks of about 10" in length inside the head of the antler to help the antler remain strait. It's a good idea to insert the wooden sticks when you are  stuffing the deer head.

Optimism is the faith 
that leads to achievement. 
Nothing can be done without hope 
and confidence.

I want to wish you a wonderful day full of love, peace, and unforgettable moments.
