Croquet set -- you lived a good life!  Did I just hear a bell ring?
Attaching head to body wasnt too difficult, I drilled into each and used a two-head screw and glue.
Okay, I cheated just a bit.  These two wickets(?) were from a different set, but they really were croquets hoops.  I just painted white, cut to size, and epoxyed them on.  
The halo was from a misc. piece of coiled wire, painted white and epoxyed.

Yup, this is the final project from my Craigslist freebie croquet set.  And many of you who have come to know me know that I've got a thing for angels.  So it only seemed fitting that that's what I chose for the end of the croquet saga.  No more whacking balls, just flapping wings!
