Awhile back I found these 2 little wooden deer at the thrift store. I paid $.50 each. I thought I would make the pair of shabby chic momma and baby deer.
The first thing I needed to do was to remove the glue from the larger one. That was a tough job. I ended up, very carefully, using an Xacto Knife to carve and chip away all the glue.
Next I gave both of them a coat of white chalk paint.
Then I choose a rose patterned napkin from my stash and carefully separated the top printed layer from the bottom to layers.
After that I cut and tore the motifs I decided to use for the project.
Then using Mod Podge I glued the roses and buds in a pleasing design.
I also glued three flowers to the back shoulders of the momma deer and 1 flower by her ear.
I gave them both a complete coat of Mod Podge and let them dry.
For their eyes I glued teardrop shaped black crystals to the baby and 2 black heart crystals for the momma.
