Introduction: Maleficent Antlers for Halloween

About: I am a Swede living in Stockholm, with two beautiful kids and one wife (equally beautiful!)..
Thanks for checking out this instructable on how to make some pretty decent Malficent antlers for Halloween. There will soon be a following Instructable on how to attach it to someone's head - as soon as I find the right material (fake black leather strips probably)and a willing head.

Step 1: Creating a Structure

Use chicken fence in order to create a base for the antlers. You dont have to be to precise at this stage!

Step 2: Add a Surface to Your Structure

Mix one part water and one part water based wood glue/hobby glue. Soak strips of newspaper in the mixture. Apply to your net. Let dry overnight.

Step 3: Improve Your Surface Using Tape!

I used a textile tape to get first smooth layer.

Step 4: Add Volume (if Needed)

Since my antlers came out too thin, I added a layer of "insulation tape" ( probably called something else in english). It is the stuff you use for stopping the wind blow though the cracks in windows and doors....

Step 5: Get That Leather Finish!

I simply used black insulation tape. Apply it tightly around your antlers.

Step 6: Finishing Touches

Apply black tape to the head.
