Cruelty-Free Deer Head Hanging

Have you checked out my Pinterest board on ‘Napkin Crafts’ yet? I don’t know about you but I was amazed at the amount of things you can do with napkins! So cheap, too. If you haven’t looked at it yet, check out the link at the bottom of this post.

Here’s something else that takes just a few napkins and some patience…

This deer’s head is created by layering napkins over a blank made by a company called Decopatch. They come in all shapes and sizes, but no matter which you get they are covered in the same way.

The company also sells paper and glue designed for covering the blanks, but if you like being frugal then you can just use napkins like me! 

Follow these 4 easy steps for your very own patterned creature:

  1. Separate the layers of the napkins and rip each layer into small pieces around the size of a 50p. 
  2. Use PVA glue to attach the white under-layers of the napkins all over the blank; this gives a nice white background and makes the design stand out. 
  3. Repeat with the patterned layer and admire the finished model! 
  4. A final coat of PVA or a spray of craft sealer over the top will ensure it is protected against dust etc.

Happy Decopatching!
