|Some of the materials needed for this ornament.|
Pine cone (for body)
Silk leaves (2, any shape, for wings)
Wooden ball (for head)
Gold cord (about 2″, for halo)
Gold ribbon (for neck & back)
Gold thread or wire (for hanger)
Gold spray paint
Hot glue gun
Step 1: Spray paint your pine cone, leaves, and wooden ball.
Step 2: Use the sand paper to flatten out the end of your pine cone where you’ll attach the head.
Step 3: Attach the head to the pine cone using your glue gun. (My head happens to be a gold mesh covered styrofoam ball that I had handy.)
Step 4: Attach the wings to the back of the pine cone body, using your glue gun.
Step 5: Make a small bow with your gold ribbon; attach bow to the point where the two wings meet on the back (to give it a more finished look).
Step 6: Tie a bow around your angel’s neck.
Step 7: Make a circle with the gold cord, connect the ends with glue gun. Once cool, attach your halo to the back of the head with your glue gun, so it looks like the picture below:
Step 8: Make a hanger with the gold thread or wire. Hang on your tree or cupboard door.
And aren’t these the cutest little guys? I used large pearls for their heads and added some glitter to their wings. These each measure about 3″ high.
