More Plastic Moulding - Re-Making A Missing Handle

Here's another plastic moulding project - this time, to make a new handle for a broken horn serving ladle.
Here's the object I started with - it's a serving ladle made from shaped cow horn.
It originally had a wooden handle, attached by a slender dowel, but this broke off.
And here's the finished object, complete with remanufactured handle.
The handle is made from about 200g of recycled HDPE - sourced from plastic milk and shampoo bottles, plus an assortment of bottled tops thrown in for extra colour.
The new handle is built on a metal post that is glued securely into the drilled-out original dowel hole - hopefully this new handle won't snap off quite so easily.
