Saw Chovey and Junkermidge Garden Totems and loved them.  Thanks so much for the idea.  Here are my variations.
I did use Gorilla Glue instread of epoxy. It dried white - so you might want to stick to the epoxy.
Closer view of the Angel Totem.
Closer view of the Garden Fairy Totem.
Closer view of the Coffee Cup Fairy.
Found that the candleholder i put on the bottom was not sturdy enough to hold the weight.  So be sure and put those closer to the top.

Thank you in advance for your help.
