I braided these cutoffs using a basketweave pattern for hanging from a mantle. I used 10 strands of colored rawhide about 6 feet long. Then I used some escutchens and some other beads to add some bling. You can make them more plain for rattling horns. Antlers with no browtines make the best ones for braiding.

I can't remember exactly where I got this idea, but I saw a picture of shed antlers displayed on a replicated section of barbed wire fence and thought I would give it a try. I still haven't finished it, but you can get the idea what it looks like from this "work in progress" picture.
I am looking for the right pieces of wood for Fenceposts. If I can I'd like to find an actual old fencepost and cut it laterally in half to make 2 each mounting flush against the wall.
