Attach Branches to Post

Hold branches up to mailbox post, then use drill and wood screws to fasten branches securely.

Add Twinkle Lights

Once antlers are in place, wrap them with twinkle lights, then run an extension cord down the back of the post, and through a predetermined route through the yard to the nearest exterior power source. Note: The cord will eventually be hidden from view once rope is added to post.

Secure End of Rope

With 200 feet of 1/2-inch diameter sisal rope nearby, unfurl a small portion of rope, then create a knot at the very bottom of the mailbox post. Add wood screw directly through the end of the rope and into mailbox post with screw gun, securing it tightly in place.
