Horn mount cover

Hello all, I am in the process of mounting a set of horns off a buck i got last year and I bought one of the cheap kits off ebay, but the cover for the horns is too small. Does anyone have a good recommendation for what to cover it with? I read that some people get felt to cover it. Just looking for some ideas. Thanks cool

I avoid the kits and do my own by using plaster of paris and covering with felt.

Thanks
I have 4 different patterns I use. I usually end up doing 4-5 mounts each year for buddies and sometimes a few strangers call to have a set done.

Here is a pic of a European mount I started doing.
