What would you do with an old antler if you found one?

that was by the way attached to a partial skull?

Well you start off by cutting off the skull... ewww!

I used my table saw... and let me tell you it was not a good smell.

Next, using E6000 glue and a screw I attached the antler to a piece of wood... I've added affiliate links in bold to help you complete this project.

Now comes the fun part... 

I painted the antler with gold Rub and Buff, (this link is an alternative to the costly brands)... Instant gorgeous!!

This stuff is amazing! It gives a metallic look to anything. 

I've used it on metal hardware..... wood... and now an antler.

Rub and Buff comes in a variety of different colors and each one gives a beautiful finish.

Rub a little on to give anything a little bling.

These golden antlers are a great place to hang a special ornament...

A jewelry display, or just modern decor like my client did on her mantel when the holidays are over.
