Deer skull (cleaned and spray painted)
5 (8 foot) 1×4 furring pine boards
Trim for the black accent piece (I used metal but you can tape on the wood with painters tape and do a faux strip)
Cut 4 boards in half giving you 8- 4 foot boards. I took the saw and cut the corners to give me a fence look. I just eyed it so they’re all different. Stain and sand each piece. Initially I was going to use all 8 pieces, but it looked off to me so I ended up using only 7 boards. Using the same technique as the fall plank sign here, join all boards together using the 5th furring pine board. Spray with finishing spray. Okay…now to be honest here….I don’t love the metal strip I used on mine. I got it from Home Depot. It doesn’t stay on my plaque well enough and that bothers me. It is just for looks, but I am on the lookout for a metal strip that I like better. This strip goes 1 1/2″ from both sides of the plaque and runs vertically up. I painted mine black to give the plaque that finished look! Now you will mount your deer skull with screws, Rex used 4″ screws on ours because it was so large. Hang that beauty up and admire it!
