Decorating a garden in winter will be a nice thing to do. However, you should pay attention to the materials used. Make sure that all the things will defend against the cold weather. So, those items will not break because of the snow. Cut logs are easy material that you can find outside or buy at a certain store. Use them to build rustic deer lawn ornaments
First of all, we need to gather logs and branches from the garden. Cut them in certain sizes as needed. Decide the body and head. This process is the basic point that so much important because will influence the shape of deer lawn ornaments later on.
The second step, take dowels to make the deers’ legs. Stain them in a dark color that has the same color as your logs. Then, cut them in the same size that later will function as the legs and neck. This is an easy step that anyone can do, even for a DIY newbie.
Decide where you will make the holes for the legs on the biggest logs. Cut them into circular shapes. After that, drill them to make holes. Do the same way for the neck hole as well. Please make sure you do it correctly. Make sure that the legs will stand balance. So, the deers will not fall down because of the wind. Drill smaller holes for the smaller logs that defined as the deers’ heads to put antlers.
Use wood glue to assemble the dowels that have been cut before. Do it carefully to attain a stable deers’ body. Get legs into the legs’ holes as well as the neck. After this process, the deers look alive. It will take some minutes.
Assemble the antlers on the holeson the deers’ head that you have made. The holes for antlers are smaller than the legs. Now, the deers seem like want to run. Ask your kids to do this project with you. We guarantee that they will love to see the deers.
