Outdoorsman Christmas !

Nothing says Merry Christmas quite like an arrangement of antlers...right?
All of the men in our lives are avid outdoorsmen and we wanted to honor them and the skills involved in safe and successful hunting. So we added this Christmas decoration to the top of our entertainment center.

It took a long time to gather this many racks. I started the arrangement by stacking the antlers and laying them out in a somewhat symmetrical pattern.

The next step in the process was to weave the greenery and small rice lights into the antlers. It is already starting to look better.

Next I added some glittery bulbs to fill out the look.

Here is a close up of some of the bulbs.

Over all I am very pleased with the look of this arrangement. Mark was happy to see how I used the collection of antlers and was honored that we thought of him. This is a fun addition to our usual decorations and a nice glow when we turn on the lights.
