Angel Ornament

Day 1 was a total hit and I think today, day 2, is going to be even better! Easy home made ornaments to decorate your Christmas tree or to give to family and friends as little gifts. That, and lots of inspiration is what The 12 Days of Christmas Ornaments event is all about.

These angels look like lots of work but nope. They are easier to make than what you think, I promise. ;)

The materials you'll need:

  • Fabric of your choice
  • Gold pipe cleaners
  • 1" wooden doll heads
  • Ribbon or string (5" for each ornament)
  • Wired ribbon (2" width and 5" for each ornament)
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun
          You can find most of the materials at Michael's


I was lucky to have these fabric triangles in my stash. Loooong time ago I created some cute Christmas stockings and these triangles were used for the scuff. I was planning on making a big stash of stockings to give away, but after sewing the ones I needed for my mantel, I didn't want to continue, they were lots of work, all the remaining parts were put away.
So, now they came in handy for this project.

The triangles I had were 7" x 5".  You can create the same type or fabric triangle without sewing it, you just need to make a cone and glue it on the back. Perhaps a nice paper can also be used.
The lower part of the gown got a fun wavy line, and at the top a little cut was done.

Bring the pipe cleaner through the hole and glue the folded string or ribbon onto the pipe cleaner at about 4" from the top.
Pass the wooden head trough both, the pipe cleaner and the folded string. Create the circular shape for the halo and insert the end of the pipe cleaner into the hole, securing it with hot glue.

Give the wired ribbon a slanted cut on each end.
Apply a little line of glue on the back of the angel and attach the ribbon by pinching its center.

The pipe cleaner on the under side (sorry about that Mrs. Angel), can be looped around to keep the dress in shape.

Add extra decorations, ribbons, sequins, etc. I kept them simple, showing off the nice swirls on their gowns.

Easy, right!
