Project Instructions

Step 1 Paint the edges of the plaques with white acrylic paint.

Step 2 Spray adhesive to the top of one of the plaques and adhere the decorative scrapbook paper.

Step 3 Trim with the X-ACTO® knife blade to match the silhouette of the wood plaque.

Step 4 Draw a 5"x5" square on the back of the other plaque.

Step 5 Drill a hole through the plaque in the center of the drawn square (see photo).

Step 6 Put the skill saw through the drilled hole and cut out the 5"x6" drawn square.

Step 7 Use wood glue to glue the two wood plaques together back to back. Allow to dry.

Step 8 Cut the Styrofoam® ball in half.

Step 9 Trim to the shape of half of an animal head using a long X-ACTO® knife blade.

Step 10 Cut two long holes on either side of the Styrofoam® ball for the antler placement.

Step 11 Form the fabric over the Styrofoam® shape and hold the fabric in place with the U-pins.

Step 12 Place the covered foam ball onto the covered wood plaque side and mark the placement of the antlers.

Step 13 Drill a ½" hole through the plaque for each antler (see photos).

Step 14 Carefully feed the lighted branches through the back of the wood plaque and secure the ends with a nail into the side of the plaque (see photos).

Step 15 Fit the carved and fabric covered Styrofoam® shape around the lighted branches and hot glue in place.

Step 16 VELCRO® the battery box to the inside of the plaque hole.
