- Glue a strip of silver ribbon down the front of the angel's dress and cut off any protruding edges.

- 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.

- Use the bead cap to give the angel a little crown.
