Mini angel

This small, cute angel will make a great decoration for your Christmas tree.

Body

Cut an 8cm long piece of white pipe cleaner for the body and fold it in the middle. Now cut a 6cm piece for the arms. Twist the 6cm piece around the folded 8cm piece as shown to make the arms. Make sure that the arms are the same length before applying a drop of glue to hold the pieces together.

Glue

Glue on a wooden ball for the head and beads for the hands and feet.

Clothing

Cut an 8cm long piece of each of the lace ribbons. Sew a thread lengthways through
The wider lace ribbon and tie it around the waist of the angel as the bottom part of a dress. Fold the thinner lace ribbon in half lengthways and sew a thread through it. Tie it around the neck of the angel to form the upper part of the dress. Glue the wings on the angel’s back.

Hair

Cut ten 10cm long pieces of white yarn and tie them together around the middle with a piece of sewing thread to form the hair for the sides of the head. Cut eight 6cm long pieces of white yarn and tie them together 1.5cm from one end with a piece of sewing thread to form the fringe and the back of the hair. Glue the fringe / back hair on first and then glue the side hair on top of it. Trim the hair to an even length all the way around.

Face

Use a permanent marker to draw on the eyes and then use a red coloured pencil to add a little “rouge” to the cheeks.

Halo

Cut off a 10cm long piece of silver pipe cleaner, make it into a circle and twist the ends together to form the halo.  Glue the halo on the top of the head.
