This is the deer I harvested last year on the rifle hunt.
I found this old wheel in the same junk pile- also FREE!
I bought this frame at a garage sale for .50 cents.
I paid $2 for this also from a garage sale.
I bought four of these small frames from a garage sale for .25 cents a piece. I also used these on the sign in table for my brother's reception. Check that out HERE
This was actually two separate pieces. I had them separate in the first collage that was in my kitchen but for this collage I wired them together. They fit perfectly above the deer head. I paid a total of $3 for these.
The old yoke I bought at a garage sale for $15.
For the final touches we outlined the wall with a wood frame and stained it.
Since all the decor on the wall was found at garage sales, the total cost of my wall was really inexpensive. I used paint and glaze I already had so the paint job didn't cost anything. We also had the wood on hand that was left over from a previous project. The total cost of everything on the wall was $64 dollars. (not including what it cost to taxidermy the deer in the middle) $30 of that came from the two frames I splurged on. The other deer skull that is not listed is a dead head C.J. found while out shed hunting (looking for the antlers deer shed every year). It was F.R.E.E! I love that word.
Garage sales are the best way I know of to create an inexpensive wall collage. It also allows you to use unique items that no one else will have. For other tips for decorating on a budget check out my Budget Decorating and Updating post Here
