wired edged ribbon, sheer for wings, about an inch wide
4 wooden beads, 1/2 inch
lace at least 2 inches wide
wooden bead 1.25 inches wide (I use dowel ends)
ribbon for legs, arms and bow
color markers for face
small bead or pearl
acrylic paint, white and flesh color
Paint the clay pot white (or any color you want as a theme for your angel). Paint the round bead fleshtone. Will dry in about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile cut a length of ribbon about 10 inches long. Attach a bead at each end and knot the ends to keep in place. Cut another length about 6 inches long and attach a bead at each end, knotting the ends.
When paint is dry, using markers (or paint if you'd like) make a face on the wood bead. I find making her eyes closed is easiest.
Cut a length of lace to go around the pot as her dress. The pot will sit upside down. I usually take a needle and loosely thread through the top to gather, but you can just glue if you have puffy lace.
Fold the longer ribbon in half and thread through the hole in bottom of the pot. Bring up the loop a bit and thread the shorter length through the loop as shown in pic.
Make the shorter length even on each side of pot as arms. Make the longer piece even for legs and gently pull the ribbons until flush with pot. Add a bit of hot glue to hold in place. If ribbon looks a little long, cut a bit off and re-knot.
Glue hair in strips until you are satisfied with the outcome. Hair can be painted if you would rather. Make a circle from the pipe cleaner and glue to head as a halo.
Glue her head to the pot. Make a bow and glue to her front and add a bead or pearl in center of bow.
Form a bow as wings from the wire edged ribbon and glue to her back.
She is now ready to sit on your shelf or desk. Great gift for co-workers or someone in hospital.
