Steps:

  1. Trace two body parts onto the white felt and cut them out. Use glue to affix the two parts together.
  2. Glue a strip of silver ribbon down the front of the angel's dress and cut off any protruding edges.
  3. Cut one face from the flesh colored felt. Glue the face onto the angel's head.
  4. You need to be able to hang the angel from the tree. Put a piece of silver thread through the needle's eye and double it up. Stick the needle through the top of the angel's head and tie a knot a few inches away from the top of the angel's head. Neatly cut off the ends of the thread.
  5. Glue the angel's hair in place and cut it neatly around her face.
  6. Use the Fineliner Pen to add eyes and a mouth.
  7. Add rosy cheeks using the dark pink pen.
  8. Use rhinestones to decorate the collar and seam of the dress. Also add rhinestones on the ribbon.
  9. Trace one pair of wings onto the shimmer cardstock and cut it out. Use the Pilot pen to add a silver border all around the wings. Do this on the front and back sides of the wings.
  10. Use the bead cap to give the angel a little crown.

Another quick ornament that you can change between a snowman and a Santa.

Approximate Time: 20 minutes

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Using the patterns trace the circle for regular size jar rings onto your plastic. We used a container strawberries came in, the rippled sides work also and make a cute beard look for Santa. Santa/Snowman Ornament Template

  2. Cut them out and paint your face on, make sure to start your eyes half way down from one edge so they show when you glue on the hat.

  3. Set these aside to dry while you paint the bottom half of the rings white.

  4. While these are drying trace and cut out your hats.

  5. Cut a strip of ribbon 12 inches long and tie the ends in a knot. Lay this ribbon at the peak of Santa's hat and at the top of the snowman hat to catch in the glue.

  6. For the Santa hat center one of the triangles on the rectangles with the bottom edges even and glue together. Put glue up the two sides and up the red point but not on the bottom edge as it will slip over the ring.

  7. For the snowman glue the sides and top together leaving the bottom open.

  8. To assemble the ornament put a line of hot glue along the edge where the rim of a jar goes and quickly press your painted face into the glue with the painted face side up so when you seal your ornament it will be on the inside.

  9. Put a tablespoon plus a little more of the snow in the lid and pat it down. Don't over fill or it will stick to your glue gun.

  10. Run another line of glue just inside the rim of the lid and push another painted face circle with the painted side down toward the snow and make sure it is sealed all the way around containing the snow.

  11. Run another line of glue around the edge of the plastic circle to ensure it stays in place.

  12. Slip the hat over the top of your ring and put a line of glue on the ring gluing the hat on, turn over and repeat.

I made a cute santa using embroidery and fabric. I then made a "sandwich" of fabric, pellon, and more fabric. Stitch the "sandwich" together and trim out. It was pretty quick and fun. I used a free online colouring book page for the design, printed at 1/4th size. Happy holidays!

It isn't too late to still make quick paper or felt ornaments for gifts to stick into a card. One of my daughters is using brown felt and cutting out gingerbread men that she then puts faces and details on with a paint pen, a red gingham ribbon attaches it to the tree. She's making these for grandparents, teachers, etc. and sending some in our Christmas cards. Also origami books or other Christmas paper ornament books can be found at the library.
