I love the natural beauty of sheds. I also like decorating with them. Just prop on antique books, like the photo above. I even use them to hang jewelry in my Shoppe. You might wonder, what are deer sheds? Deer shed their antlers every year and then grow a new set. It takes 2 to 3 weeks for deer to shed their antlers. This all happens between the end of Winter and the beginning of Spring. They literally drop off onto the ground. Then they start the cycle of growing new antlers again. Why? Of course the male deer want to grow back their antlers to attract the ladies during mating season.
