Glitter Deer Head Wall Art {printable}

While real taxidermy scares me {just a little}, a glittery deer head silhouette sounds like something I wouldn’t mind hanging around. A masculine shape {for him} combined with some sparkly glitz {for her} ~ and you have perfect deer head improvising.


The deer head image was free clip art that I had found and lightened up in publisher. I made a printable pdf version you can download {here}. I simply printed mine on a plain white sheet of cardstock.


I then used Gorilla Super Glue to outline and fill in the deer silhouette, small sections at a time. I love the precision tip of the Gorilla Super Glue which is perfect for an accurate application; plus when the glue and glitter dry, they are there to stay. {no more ‘glitter for days’ with this project}


Working quickly, I sprinkled on Golden Diamond Micro Glitter, from PK Glitz, and let sit for at least 60 seconds. The high quality of the ultra fine PK Glitz glitters is like no other. They have over 80 amazing colors {color chart}, so vibrant, bold and very, very sparkly!


Once set, I shook the cardstock, over a plain sheet of paper, tapping lightly to remove the excess glitter; then slightly folding the paper, recycled the glitter back into the container. Repeat this whole process until you have completely filled in the silhouette with glittery glitz.


Love the color…love the sparkle!


and for me…I prefer the glitter over the fur any day! Enjoy!

  1. Wow – that’s so cute and fun. I think I just found another gift for my in-laws for Christmas!! Thanks! :)

  2. oooo Love it! Great thinking for him and her!

  3. Love this idea.

    When I do my girl’s room I want to do a travel theme and would love to try and do maybe an Eiffel tower using this technique.

  4. Super cute! I am also a fan of the glitter over the fur!

  5. No way – that is so expensive looking! But whimsical. I love it!

  6. This is so great. I live in the hunting capital of Texas and there are deer heads in every restaurant, grocery store, bank….ugh! They are creepy people! I am glad I am not the only one who thinks so. I may have to make one of you glitter heads and then maybe I will fit in a little better around here. Or I’ll be laughed out of town. LOL! Lisa~

  7. oh I love this….especially for christmas

  8. Soooo many possibilities! I once baby sat for a family who I didn’t know had a “trophy” room. Apparently they played this joke on all the babysitters…the little boy would lead the unsuspecting baby sitter into the room which required a light to be turned on and the switch was framed by a bear head. You had to stick your hand in its mouth to turn it on. Creepy.

  9. Glitter scares me because it gets everywhere, but I definitely like the look of this! Totally manly in a feminine way:)

  10. I love all things deer! This is beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing!

  11. This is so cute! I ♥ glitter.
