Christmas Angels


Merry Christmas!
I wanted to pop in here quickly to share with you these cute little Christmas Angels I have been making! They are so fun and easy!!!
 I found the tutorial for them while blog surfing HERE, she has a video tutorial that explains the process, they are really very easy.  They can be embellished to the hilt are left simple, I just used supplies I had on hand, but I want to pick up some feathers and that pretty punch she used to make some more fancy ones, I am thinking of one for each month of the year would be adorable!
The base is half of  a 7-3/4 inch circle and the arms are half of a 4 inch circle. The half circles are curled into a cone shape and glued. I used a small clothespin to hold it together while the glue dried.
 On this one I used some confetti cream card stock and I stamped the image from the Stampin Up "Beautiful Season and colored it before assembling the angel.
The head is a small ornament and is glued to the cone after pushing in the point to make the place for it to sit. 


I had some of this gold laced rick-rack that I got at JoAnns sometime last year and I added it around the bottom and the sleeves of the angel. I embossed her sleeves and wings with the dot embossing folder. the halo is some chenille pipe cleaners, and I wrapped some red string beads around the halo. I added a lace bow made with some SU crochet trim and a bit more of the red string beads. Love how this came out!

You know I had to try some of my favorite paper to make a Country Angel too:


I kept the embellishments to a minimum on this one, so the pretty music sheet paper could shine through :)
I used a polished gold ornament for her head and coffee dyed the chenille pipe cleaner to match her paper. The ribbon is more I had in my stash and matches the "country feel" I was going for on this one. I glittered her wings with some gold dust stickles. 

  
Well, that is all from me for now, I know I will be making more of these cute little angels and I will show them to you as I do. Hope you all have a blessed Christmas and Enjoy it with all the ones you love the most.
HAPPY STAMPING!!
Vicki

Thank you for sharing your adorable angel ornaments! I have been looking for something to make for the women in my bible study for Christmas and these are perfect! I did have one question, have you ever tried to make them with anything but card stock like maybe scrap booking paper? Or do you think that would be too flimsy? The design options with paper would be endless! Thanks again for sharing!

This caught my eyes immediately! How absolutely gorgeous and you make it sound so easy to do. I must try one and if it works out, have it ready for my 6 yr old grand daughter to make for her mom. Thank you so much for sharing ♡
