The antler and hunting trophy trend has been around for some time, and I will venture to say that taxidermy wall décor and antler chandeliers (sorry, Jason Miller) are officially over. But there's still a place for a call to the wild in your home — if you get creative. I love how one Living Etc reader reimagined the style by DIY-ing a set of rustic curtain rod finials and curtain tiebacks for her home from real antlers. She writes, "Thought you might like to see the curtain finials and tiebacks I made from the naturally shed antlers of red deer. Finials were glued on to a basic curtain pole and finial set from Ikea and tiebacks screwed directly into the wall." Not only is the look totally unique, but it's also a fantastically affordable way to update run-of-the-mill, basic, and cheap Ikea hardware.

Have you ever made anything from antlers? Or have you ever DIY-d a curtain rod finial or tieback?
