Wing spikes

I have a set of wing spikes that I want to do something with. Any ideas what they can be used for? They are somewhat odd shaped naturally so i'm drawing a blank. Suggestions?

@Ravenhunter

I have one right and one left, about 13" more-or-less from tip to tip.

I know they can be used for a bustle but are there any other craft uses considering that I don't have the whole wing set?

Wing Spikes

Sorry to take so long in returning a message. I would agree they would look nice from bustle uprights and I would probably do that if I were building a bustle. If you could locate a nice center tail feather you may consider a small fan as another option. I once saw a dancer that had two spikes as a simple fan with some gourd stitch and hawk bells but I cannot recall any other information on the 2 feather fan. It is also not necessary to do something immediately I would think, possibly hold on to them for a while until something comes to mind.

Thanks @Ravenhunter

Yea I was also thinking of a small fan. I've had these for a bit and every once in a while I get an idea and take a look to see if it would work. We'll see what happens.

to be continued...
