I finished this recently. An old spindle I got in Galveston, Texas while shopping with the family. The owl came from Hobby Lobby and I love it! This would be cute by the door or on the patio with a mason jar candle hanging from it.
This is what it looked like before paint and stain. I attached two round pieces of wood to a piece of leftover spindle with a screw. Then I added a finale to the top to make it look finished
I painted and stained it . The hook was bought at Hobby Lobby on sale.
