this is a super fun and easy diy! the antlers could easily be made into many things: christmas ornaments, wall hangings, necklaces...okay, maybe just a few things. i decided to go the necklace route and make my mom and sisters some fun little gifts!
what you'll need:
first, take a small amount of clay and roll it back and forth into a long tube.
next, fold the tube piece in half and make the shape and points of the antlers.
i went ahead and made six of these. one for my mom, each of my sisters, and myself! once you are happy with how your antlers look, poke holes on either side where the necklace chain will go using the yarn needle. then bake them according to the directions on the clay package.
once the antlers are baked and dry, wrap them with embroidery thread (gluing as needed) (i used hot glue on the first necklace and then, when reminded how much i hate hot glue, switched to fabric glue.) and attach the necklace chain! i had fun choosing colors that i thought my mom and sisters would like! i had many colors to choose from, seeing as i am a crafting supply hoarder and had a multitude of embroidery thread! you know, even though i don't embroider.
like i said, this was super easy and fun. and i think they turned out well! i hope my mom and sisters think so, too!
would you wear an antler necklace???
