alpine christmas wood reindeer crate

Step 1
Using a foam brush, apply gel stain to the crate, excluding the second slat on both sides.
 
TIP: Sand any rough areas of the crate as needed. Apply gel stain in sections. Wait about 30 seconds before wiping with a paper towel. 
Step 2
Paint the second slat on both sides with two coats of Dark Scarlet. Allow to dry between coats. 
Step 3
Apply wood glue to both the back of the wooden deer head and the front crate slats upon which it will be placed. Press the deer onto the crate and allow the wood glue to dry overnight.
