It dawned on me that hinges kinda look like wings. So, I pulled out my hinge box and discovered that hinge pins would be good for the body. I epoxyed together. Decided they needed halos so I epoxyed washers (that was tricky). I think they'll make cute ornaments for the junk Christmas tree I'm working on.

I did a junk tree myself but I don't have the hardware stash like you do. Very nice.
