We scoured Pinterest looking for the coolest antler designs and this is what we found.
I'm not sure if the rise in shed hunting has led to the rise in antler motif or if the rise in antler decoration has led to the rise in shed hunting. Either way, it's a win-win for lovers of bone. Whether you use these designs to inspire your own creation or you use them to fuel your next hiking excursion, we hope you enjoy the best of Pinterest - antler edition!
In no particular order, let's start with four simple and sweet designs by Irina Mitrofanova . In the interest of lists, we'll only count similar styles as one.
1. Simplicity rules
2. Antler mounts for the win
3. Twist on the classics
These two may be my favorite by Robert Long. A new twist on a classic and clean skull mount.
4. Style and function
If you're looking for style and function, check out this table by Peterson Woodworks. A great way to admire those hard earned sheds and keep them out of the way at the same time.
5. Moose antlers stand alone
You may have seen this one before but I couldn't keep it off the list. Every time I look at, it amazes me. There's just something special about moose antlers! By Linda Chumbley.
6. Festival ready?
This is a design that I believe truly captures the animal spirit, by Flikr.
Just kidding. Don't do this or anything like this. Ever.
7. A big name in a small world
Some of you are probably familiar with Shed Hunting babez. They're a pretty big name in the shed hunting world and they make some cool antler products. What's great about this design is that anyone can do it. Simple, elegant and a great way to showcase your sheds!
8. Detailed antler carvings
9. Total transformation
This next one blows me away. Using antlers to resemble the animals that wore them is one thing. Using them in a completely unique and artistic expression is something else entirely. This was posted by minushabensblog.
10. No, really, a total transformation
This list could have gone on forever. That's the great thing about antlers and the people who collect them. We never seem to run out of uses or ideas. If you see any that we missed or have some favorites of your own, let us know!
