Acrylic Tree Angel

These little angels make cute Christmas tree decorations and also make great gifts without spending a lot of money.

Approximate Time: About 1 hour



  • 4 inch tall acrylic tree
  • 1 inch round wooden bead with 1/2 inch hole
  • piece of tulle or small heart doily for wings
  • peach acrylic paint or any color you'd like to use for the head
  • black dimensional paint
  • white dimensional paint
  • fine point black marker
  • pink blush and cotton swab
  • 4 small silk roses
  • 10 inch piece of gold thread (hanger)
  • 4 inch length of doll hair
  • 12 inches of 1/4 inch wide red satin ribbon
  • 10 inches of 3/8 inch wide white satin ribbon
  • low temp glue gun and glue sticks
  • Spanish moss


  1. Using the white dimensional paint, outline the tree boughs and fill in with dots (as pictured).

  2. Use the black dimensional paint to make two black shoes on the tree's trunk. Allow to dry.

  3. Paint the ball peach (or other color) for the head and allow to dry.

  4. Ad
  5. Paint on a face using the fine point marker.

  6. Apply some blush to her face using the cotton swab.

  7. Tie the gold thread to the hanging tab at top of tree. Insert it through the bead (head) and glue the head in place.

  8. Knot the center of the 3/8 inch wide ribbon and glue the ends behind her shoulders. This will be her arms.

  9. Pinch the tulle together in the middle and glue to back of tree for wings or use a heart shaped doily.

  10. Glue on the hair, fluff and trim as necessary.

  11. Glue some Spanish moss under her chin and tuck in three silk roses and glue into place.

  12. Using the red ribbon, tie a shoestring bow with 1 inch loops and 3 inch tails. Glue to the moss.

  13. You can also add a small bow to her hair. I glued on a gold heart button, but that is optional.
