Antler lamps are an excellent way to create western decor. So much more than a way to light your home, antler lamps add character to your home. If you own a rustic cabin or southwest style home, the rustic appeal of antlers with their beautiful shapes and variations in natural color will give your area the unique old west feel you are hoping to create.
In this article we'll show you how to create your own mica lamp. Before you start on your project, check if you have a tape measure, a metal lampshade (with strong frame) and shears. Now purchase the amount of mica sheets you require to make the mica lamp shades. It comes in four colors, dark amber, standard amber, stained amber and white. If you have a lamp shade that you may already have at home and decide which area you would be adding the mica too, or if you plan to do a full mica lamp shade, then measure the entire shade. Once the amount is decided purchase your mica sheets.
Antler lamps also compliment many other rustic elements in home decorating. In the Northwest or "north woods" antlers may be added to snow shoes and complimented with rawhide lamp shades to use as fabulous wall sconces. The light colored wood and rawhide lacing of the shoe, combined with the leather binding and pleasant glow of the rawhide shade, make it a wonderful match. No matter if you decide to adorn your antler lamp with southwestern light rawhide shades or western style dark rawhide lampshades, the choice is yours and the effect will be stunning.
In Jackson Hole, WY the town's square is embellished with arches created from Elk antlers. It is certainly unique and you can create the same spirit with antler lamps. Small lamps are created from whitetail deer antlers while large light fixtures such as chandeliers may have tiers of elk antlers with rawhide lampshades. One of the most popular lamps is created with moose antlers, recognizable with their beautiful dark palms and dark rawhide lamp shades.
