Acquired 3 vintage sprinkler heads and added wire nuts to the holes after which beads with eyes were glued in. For my first try (the green-eyed one) I used dowels instead and think he needs to be refitted with wire nuts as well since the wood shows. They went outside for the first time today.

Sorry for the delay. Friends from DG made a 3-hour trip to come visit today, so this is my first chance to try again.
