The Final Product.  Some small pink finishing nails will be added later to allow more hanging space, however, this looks pretty FUN-ky as is!
I had no use for this light. The electrical was pooched on it anyways. The glass was used for another project, and the rim was too pretty to just toss aside for now! I figured it was an ideal frame for this.
I needed something to mount the antler to. I had the backing from an old picture frame that was fairly thick, so I ran it through the router and trimmed it to match the frame of the light, primed and then spray painted it black
I had pink left over from the mason jar glasses, so of course I used it for colouring. It adheres quite well and has held up nicely to being banged around while being created.
HAHA! Sorry! This is the only Before shot I have of the antlers! I was pretty excited to have found them one day on a junkin tour! At the time I had no clue what I was going to do with them. But then again, I never really know what I am going to do with half the stuff I scoop up!

Such a fun project to create! The hardest part was finding the hardware to attach the frame to the picture backing, and then the perfect sized bolt and washer for the antler. I actually brought the antler into Home Depot with me, and a lady came up to me and asked - " Excuse me, are you "Gypsy Barn"? I said actually, yes I am, how did you guess? She said - I dont know to many girls that waltz into Home Depot with Hot Pink Antlers and head to the Hardware section! LOL!!!!  That made my day! The Pink P-Antlers are now heading to a jewellery designers home!
