Default Turkey beard and spur displays?

Over the past couple of years I've killed a few birds with messed up fans but really nice spurs and beard. Does anyone have an idea on how I can display just the beards and spurs I've collected.

I'm thinking that maybe I can run a piece of leather through the leg bone after it's boiled and hang it by my already mounted turkey fan. But the beards I have to display are throwing me a curve ball.

Any pics of y'all's setups are appreciated along with any advice.

I use the brass from the shotgun shell that killed the bird. Cut the plastic off and knock out the primer. Then run a leather thong up through that hole and hot glue the beard into the brass. Cut through the leg bone on either side of the spur and hollow out the remaining bone. After you get them cleaned up string them on the thong. I made a rustic peg board to hang them on for display. This is a common way to do it - I'm sure somebody around here has pictures.

Did an Eastern Turkey display for a friend, and put his permit on the back.

I display mine with a shotgun brass and leather straps. I've added another 6 since this pic so there is another rack.
