Once the legs are on there make sure that it balances well.

TIP: You can re-adjust them as needed since they are only pushed in the pine cone cracks and not permanently attached in any way.

Weave the remaining pipe cleaner to one end of the small pine cone. Cut off about 2 inches off the end of the pipe cleaners  and then twist them on to the antlers as desired.
