lexixd Dreaming of tattoos that I'll probably never be brave enough to get maybe if white tattoos looked this cool in real life. Anyways yeah I've been spending my sick day giving myself a fake half sleeve, chilling in the hammock and tanning on the porch. My sweet husband even brought me hammock side lunch delivery from my fav coffee shop for a day spent ill it's still been a pretty good day. #thesicklife #someonedonatetomytattoofundplease 5d

Now we are sitting on the plane waiting to take off and I could cry I already miss it so much!

lexixd Personally, I think antler crafts are the shit I've fallen for this coat rack I made for my work-pal-secret-Santa who likes hunting, the color purple, and is getting a new house(all facts I found through my investigative work). I impressed myself with my use of power tools, my successful attempt at navigating my way through Menards to find the stuff I needed, the fact that I didn't totally screw up painting the gold tips(and I only got a tiny bit of spray paint on the porch!(it's winter don't judge me)) and the overall sturdiness of this darling piece(thanks to the aforementioned power tools, an overuse of brackets and epic tonnes of hot glue and thick, pretty green felt to hide all the metal bits). I kinda wanna keep it for myself I won't lie, but alas the joy of a gift lays in actually giving it, so I hope she is as in love with it as I am! A million thanks to my pops @chriscaliendo for supplying the naturally shed antlers #parenthesesgalore #forclarityofcourse #antlers 3mon
  •   sammijahn Absolutely gorgeous, great work! 3mon
  •   jenkrosch Love it!! Kris has lots of power tools so if you're ever in need again, holla! 3mon
  •   lexixd @giannaevelyn I was just gonna text you and ask if you were excited for your future antler birthday jewelry rack? 3mon
  •   sofiasdream12 This looks amazing!! Great job! @lexixd 3mon
  •   breemcmahon WOW WOW WOW 3mon
  •   hv_camo Did you have a skull on this or did you attach loose antlers? I've been researching these and want to make one but I just have loose antlers. 3mon
  •   lexixd @hv_camo they were loose antlers! I actually surprised myself with how sturdy this ended up being too. I took 4 brackets that were shaped like ️<- (I hope you can see iMojis) that upside down U shape with the lip on each side for screws, I found them in the pluming section of Menards(they were like .20 cents each so I got different sizes to try, but the smallest one I got actually worked best). I wrapped the base of the antlers in jute twine, as well as the entire U shaped part of each bracket so that they would be extra snug. I used two brackets on each antler to keep them extra secure(it's necessary) and screwed them into the wood with a power drill. Then I realized that the brackets don't look the best when they aren't covered up, so I used shit loads of hot glue and felt to cover it all up and make it look pretty. Then I glued the flowers on top :) if you look on Pinterest for "antler coat rack" there was one post in particular I got the inspiration from that had a white and pink antler and they are using the same brass colored brackets I used. Hope that helps! 3mon
  •   hv_camo I think I saw that post! I was skeptical but your idea does sound sturdy. Can't wait to try! 3mon

lexixd Thanks to my pops @chriscaliendo I have a little stock of antlers to craft with! Tried my hand at an antler dream catcher and I love it I did not love, however, how difficult it was to find a source that teaches you how to weave the dream catcher part on anything other than a hoop, so after basically rage-quitting 10 times I finally got it right with this little one next time I'll be painting the antlers with gold tips and maybe adding flowers? HEYOOOOO! Anyways what are you crafty kids whipping up today? Anything good? 3mon
  •   thissweetlove I have a bunch of antlers too! I'm trying my hand at yarn bombing 3mon
  •   nicolekannenberg Rage quitting is a hilarious term. This is beautiful! 3mon
  •   kathrynfhoff Yay! I love this. I have some antlers I am dying to use as well! 3mon
  •   lexixd @kathrynfhoff I pinned like 100 possible crafts to make! I can't wait to see what you whip up 3mon
  •   scarletandgoldshop Love this! 2mon
