    Step 0 Example
  2. Use a soft cloth to apply Metallic Lustre to the antlers. (Shown: Gold Rush) Let dry. Once the antlers are dry, use a clean area of the same cloth to buff to desired sheen.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Optional: Create a banner from paper of choice. Cut about 4' of twine. Fold a piece of paper in half, so it is about 1" wide. From the folded side, cut a triangle. (See photo.) Use Glue Dots to hold the pennant onto the banner, with the twine sandwiched between the paper. (You can make several of these to change out at the holidays or seasons.)
