The Art of Darkness

Vegan Antlers

March 12th, 2015 by Cobwebs

ElkebanaIkebana is the Japanese art of flower arranging. The aptly-named Elkebana bills itself as “the first trophy for plant lovers,” and consists of a wall-mounted plaque with two hand-blown vases for arranging botanicals. The photo section of their site has a number of floral designs with fanciful names like, “Xavier the Deer,” “Isodoro the Oryx,” and “Pierre the Chamois.”

The only drawback is the price; at €99, this sucker is priced for the sort of people who would name an oryx Isodoro.

This would, fortunately, be pretty easy to DIY. Depending upon your skill level, you could either cut a thick plywood trophy base and sink a couple of wells to accommodate the vases, or just buy a cheap antler mounting kit and some slender glass bud vases which fit into the antler holes.

The floral arrangements can be long-term, like curly willow branches or silk flowers, or changed with the season. Then you can point to the trophy and proudly tell guests that you bagged it yourself.
