Well I can tell you that my absolute favorite thing in that entire decor is the paper mache glitter deer head !!!! It’s a super easy project that I am going to help you make!

You have to start with a paper mache deer head like THIS ONE. 

And grab some super fine glitter like THESE OPTIONS.  I used a silver German glass glitter from Paint Couture.

And you need a metallic paint color as close as possible to the color of your glitter color. I used THIS CHAMPAGNE color because it’s my favorite! (It could also be used on THIS furniture finish!) 


My Facebook LIVE video above shows you EXACTLY how I did the project and exactly how quick it is!

Mr. Magic did the honors of hanging the head for me (he put an eyehook on the back!).

Our 13-year-old Easton did the honors of vacuuming up some of my glitter mess!!!! lol. Such good sports!!
