Easy to Make Christmas Angels

Here’s a really simple idea for a Sunday afternoon make – mini angel Christmas decorations.

All you need is some wire, a scrap of material, ribbon and needle and thread.

Start by shaping your figure with wire you can keep it quite simple – a loop for the head and long legs.  If you want to add a bit of embellishment add some curly hair.

For the wings create a figure of eight.

Once you have the wire figure made, cut two triangular shapes out of your material and place on either side of the body area and sew together, before you hem the bottom stuff the shape with some wadding or scraps of material.  Remember to sew a few loops at the base of the head area to hold in place.

Next attach the wings.  Sew into place and attach a small strip of material to hide the metal

If you plan on hanging your angel on the tree before you cut your thread create a loop.
