I'll admit that there are some items that don't really register in my mind when it comes to holiday decor. They're either not quite my style or so ubiquitous that they're off my decorating radar. A paper mache gold deer is probably just such an item, but it might be worth a second look after this creative idea…

Over at Remodelaholic this pair of Christmas deer has suffered a slow and painful death. Danielle purchased these deer for $9 and took them to the hardware store. The hardware store? That's right they took a road trip!

The pair of deer was taken to the tool rental center where she had their heads chopped off. She then painted the heads white and mounted them to wooden plaques where they make adorable and modestly sized taxidermy heads.

It's a fun project that might have you looking at less than attractive decor as something special and having the possibility to be something greater. Check out more details over at Remodelaholic.
