3D Deer Head Wall Art | Dawn Warnaar for Silhouette

I’m in love with deer heads and patterns lately, so when I came across this 3D Deer Head Design in the Silhouette Design store, I was inspired to create this fun little wall art piece!


I re-sized it to fit a 5-inch by 7-inch frame, keeping all the pieces grouped to ensure they all fit together the same way. Then I up grouped it and cut it all on Silhouette Chipboard (you’ll have to cut two of the deer body, which isn’t pictured).

Originally, I planned on painting it, but then thought it would be fun to cover the chipboard in patterned scrapbook paper. For the body, you’ll have to mirror one of the images so the scrapbook paper will go on the correct side. I ended up cutting four of the body, since the inside of the body pieces do show a bit once it’s assembled.

I used spray adhesive to attach the scrapbook paper pieces to their corresponding chipboard pieces.

Then just assemble the dear head and hot glue it to white card stock and pop in a frame. I added her to my craft room office vintage frame gallery wall.

For the holidays, you could d0  the same thing but use Christmas scrapbook paper!

  1. Gorgeous job. I love the patterns and colors you chose…they go perfectly with your frame!

  2. Very cute!

  3. This is so fun Dawn! Love the mix of papers you used.

  4. Ha ha – LOVE him – brilliant. Thank you for the tutorial 🙂

  5. You could make a red nose for Roudolf and then after Christmas change to other craft paper nose. My first thought was also make this out of sturdy enough media to hang necklaces from for a gift for my niece. She loves to hunt.

  6. I’ve made two sizes of this and so far I’m having assembly issues! Its almost like the slits aren’t wide enough to accommodate the chipboard and two layers of patterned paper. Did you widen the slits?
