Top 7 Ways to Decorate with Antlers
Posted on October 16, 2014 ·
Antlers are one of the more distinctive accessories you can use to decorate your home or event. We’ve seen antlers fashioned into coat racks, lamps, and even chairs! This trend lends itself to a natural look, but antlers don’t always have to be in a woodland setting. We've come up with seven ways you can craft antlers into your own unique style.
Vase Filler The easiest way to gather your antlers in an artful way is to pile them into a large vase or urn. Depending on your décor, this arrangement can make a fun focal point in a modern setting, or it can blend perfectly within a rustic environment.

Bouquet Accent Use antlers to add a natural touch to your bouquet. This one may seem a little odd at first since bouquets are traditionally softly hued and bursting with plush flowers—but antlers can give your bouquet wonderful structure without being overbearing.

Centerpiece Pedestal Make a unique statement by elevating a floral arrangement. Instead of using the usual pedestal or wood slice, try crafting your antlers into an exceptional stand to showcase your floral centerpieces.

Cake Stand Take it one step further and elevate a cake. Using antlers to raise your cake or desserts is not only an inventive idea, but it has a minimalist look to it which will draw attention to your overall display.

Pumpkin Embellishment Looking for a creative fall centerpiece? Use a pair of antlers as a simple embellishment for your pumpkins! Create an arrangement around the antlers using silk flowers, or decorate them with fall naturals and greenery. Place your finished design on top of the pumpkin for a gorgeous decoration that will last the whole season!

Tablescape Accessory Incorporate antlers into a woodland display along banquet tables for a natural looking presentation. Use moss and richly colored flowers for a striking tablescape. For a display that’s a little more playful, cover the artificial antlers with gold spray paint and accessorize with metallic accents.

Wreath Add-on You can also use antlers to decorate a wreath. Mix them in with natural greenery, or create a seasonal wreath. Use a grapevine wreath for the base, or fashion a burlap wreath out of a wire frame. Embellish it with natural pods, fall leaves, or even feathers, and use the antlers for an unexpected finishing touch.
