Deer Antlers

Recommended Posts

Here is a set of antlers that I braided around. Each button is a single strand, 10 bight using about 15 feet of lace. I have problems with the width of lace, number of parts and bights so I have to experment to get it tight.

Joe, I thought I posted this, but it doesn't show up, so this may be a repeat. The horns are really neat. I'm curious if they are decorative or have some other use?

The set on the green background was sent to me by a customer in Texas. They use them to rattle in bucks while hunting. Need to have a high number of bucks in the area to make it work as it sounds like two are fighting, which means the "girls" are close by.

The other set will go to a shop in Houston, TX to be sold.

Tramp, probably want bigger ones for the Harley!

Thank you. I have about five more sets to do. I will post more pictures as I get them done.

Wow! What nice button braiding skills you have!

Nice flat, even, and straight "V" patterns.

I like the braided connection leash.

Very good job, I'm gonna make myself a pair for "rattling" up the big bucks.

well the lanyard part on that website is a simple 4 strand round braid.  you can google it and find instructions.  the braid on the horn part is more complicated.  it is along button knot, most likely a turkshead.  i recommend getting one of bruce grants books for instruction but also there are you tube videos.
