Deer Head Wall Art

I came across this pin a few months ago


The pin itself is wall art made of washi tape! Genius! I loved the idea, but wanted to add my own twist to it for a project for my booth! 

I've had this crate piece sitting around forever and I thought it would make the perfect backdrop for this fun deer head. 



For my piece, I really wanted the shape of the deer head be the focus rather than the tape. So, instead of washi tape I used painter's tape and used the pin as my guide to create my deer head on the crate piece. 

I dry brushed white paint over the tape and peeled it off once it was dry. 


I love the mix of the wood tone with the white!!! It turned out better than I was hoping!! 



I've got my eye out for another perfect piece of scrap wood to make another one!
