How to DIY Chalk Couture Deer Antler Autumn Porch Sign


The How To DIY Fake Deer Antler Porch Sign

What you will need to make this:


  1. Sand your wood with an Orbital Sander 220 grit is what I used
  2. Paint your wood board with white chalk paint, I used the walmart brand chalked and did NOT like it because my wood I was using had a veneer on it so it didn’t stick like other name brand chalk paints do. (amy howards one step, dixie bell, annie slone, maison blanche)
  3. Sand or distress with orbital sander, wipe dust off with cloth
  4. Do the Buffalo plaid using the storm paste and 4 in squeegee, I tried to use my plaid twice and messed up my pattern so wash/dry between chalking, should take you 3 times to cover the board.
  5. Once dry Then lay down Autumn transfer I cut it down the center and left AUT and UMN in together. Center it making sure it’s closer to the bottom so you can add the antlers at the top.
  6. Once dry seal with Krylon uv and other poly
  7. Take your two foam pieces and glue the antlers into them and then stick them through each other to make a more stable base. I didn’t have a large enough foam so if you have a larger block great.  IMG_1042
  8. Then hot glue down the foam also making sure to go around on the sides that touch the board.
  9. Once that is done, take your twine and wrap around board top, I did 4-5 times.
  10. Arrange your flowers how you like them and either put them in the foam or lay them on top and use another piece of twine to secure all in the middle.
  11. Add the raffia and secure with middle twine, than add your last CENTER flower hooking and gluing it over twine and using the twine also tie it on.
  12. Then take a few left over leaves and glue them around your foam block so they don’t show. 

  13. Done!
