Artistic interpretations of nature become creature comforts when faux deer décor adorns our walls.
Animal motifs always have and always will be used in decorating. Maybe it’s because most people love animals, or maybe because it adds a bit of fun. This hand-blocked felt menagerie of faux deer décor just makes me smile. They are perfect for a nursery or little girl’s room.
Or choose one from this whimsical junk yard trio for a boy’s room.
Hand carved basswood trophies are on the higher end, but just one does the trick!
These faux deer décor beauties are found in galleries and exhibits, but can also be custom ordered. Artist Rachel Denny covers deer and more in cozy cashmere cable knit woolen and the like.
I personally like the more realistic deer better than the white lacquered or shiny aluminum versions available. Although the flat white paint makes this one more modern, it’s the intricate details that make this baby stand out.
In our home, it’s usually vintage. I purchased this 1940’s faux stag head online. He is covered with a soft, fuzzy material and has glass eyes. His nose and antlers are metal. The wooden plaque is stamped “The Little Deer Company Saxon, WI” on the back, but I haven’t been able to find any information in my research.

Animal heads aren’t really my style, but I have to say I kind of love those felt ones and the junk yard trio.

Where do you purchase the felted wool heads or the junk heads? I saw the felted wool heads at a shop in VT but didn’t purchase them. Now I’m kicking myself! Thanks!
They are adorable. I found the felted wood heads at Pop Deluxe and the junk heads are from At West End – both websites still show inventory. For your convenience, sources are listed at the bottom of each article, in the order shown. I do not always search for the least expensive site to order when I’m writing, so do look around the internet. I’ve seen both on other websites. Good luck!
