Make a frame out of steel rod. Mig welding using argon is good for this job because it does not leave slag, making it better to galvanize it.

The steel frame has been galvanized to stop rust in the future
Wrap the frame in strips of material or build up with polyurethane foam and sand to shape.
Build up a layer of  filler composite on top of the  foam or material and grind in the pearling. You can use the silicone moulding method which involves taking a cast mould off a real set of antlers and using this to  transfer the pearling to the replica antlers.
Paint on an undercoat stain.
Stain the antlers to your desired colour
