Approximate Time: 20 minutes
- 3 inch printed wire ribbon
- 1 large wooden bead with face painted on it
- 1 inch gold ribbon
- silver chenille stick
- red chenille stick
- floral wire or twisty tie
- hot glue gun and glue
- 6 inches of small ribbon to hang the angel with
- toothpick or other sharp object
Cut the 3 inch ribbon to 5 inches long pieces. Grasp both ends of the wire at the top and hold one end while pulling the other end to make a gather. Gather until the whole piece is gathered tightly at the top.
Straighten out the bottom of the ribbon to make a dress. Tie off with the wire and thread on a large bead for the head.
Bring the wire around to the back of the head and wrap it around the neck part.
Take the 1 inch ribbon and cut it to 4 inches. Gather these at the middle and tie them off with floral wire or a twisty tie. Use the wire to attach the ribbon to the back of the angel where the wings should go.
Wrap the excess around the neck of the angel so it doesn't show.
Cut a 2 and a half piece of the silver chenille stick and make a small halo for the top of the angel head. Dab a bit of hot glue in the front and back and stick the halo in place on the head.
Form the arms with a red chenille stick by folding it in half and twisting it around the angel's neck and back to the front to form the hands.
At the top of the head add a dab of glue. Fold the 6 inches of red ribbon in half and push the ends into the head of the angel. You will use this to hang it by.
Voila! You have a very pretty Mystical Angel ready to adorn your tree or your package.
