The other day we talked about how easy it can be to create your own wall art. Our papercut winter deer artwork is another great example of how to decorate on a budget. And it’s a really quick and simple craft, too. All you need for this DIY home décor project is some cardstock, a frame, and your cutting machine.

This is a very detailed and intricate design, so we recommend using your cutting machine for this project. We initially only created an SVG file for this artwork, but we got a request to include a PDF template as well. So now there is a PDF download below if you want to cut this design by hand!

When you’re ready to make your own version of this papercut winter deer artwork, here are a few tips to keep in mind. We made it so our design would fit inside this 20″ x 20″ IKEA frame, but you can always resize it to fit a different frame size. The max size you can cut is 11.5″x11.5.” For the paper, we alternated between a natural white colored cardstock and a linen textured cardstock. We also used foam mounting squares between each layer to give it a 3D look.

Stay tuned for the other designs in this woodland set! Over the next few weeks, we will be releasing the rest of the artwork, which includes a bird for spring, a fox for summer, and an owl for fall. You can bring them out one at a time, depending on the season you’re in, or hang them up all together for one gorgeous display.
