Gather top, pull thread tight leaving a small hole. Knot. This is the dress. Slip dress onto round part of clothespin, glue. Glue ball on top. For the wings, join each piece of 1 1/2" lace with glue to make a tube. Overlap the 2 pieces in the center, gather up the middle, wrap thread around and tie tightly. Glue wings onto dress just below the head. Make a halo by forming a small circle from a piece of shiny pipe cleaner. Tie a piece of thread or ribbon through this for a hanger and then glue halo on to head. Decorate with ribbons, etc.
Pasta Angel Rigatoni pasta elbow pasta wood ball (I have heard you can use a lima bean?) small star/alphabet noodles --very small for hair bow tie pasta-for wings white spray paint
Glue the wood ball on top of rigatoni. Glue the tiny pasta on the wood ball (I used tacky glue). Glue two elbow pastas for arms coming toward each other in front of angel. Add bow pasta in back for wings. Paint white. Can add facial features if desired. Can add a gold halo of various materials.
Footprint angel We use that new "foamy board" stuff, but used just poster board before that was available. Trace each of your children's foot once, using white (for dress) and both hands (using yellow for wings). Cut out each part (Make sure they're labeled who they belong to on back). Let the children glitter and glue the hands to make wings sparkle. Take each child's picture focusing on their head and face. Help the children glue hands (wings) to the feet (body). Cut their face from picture and glue to body. Add string to make it hang. Add a piece of the sparkly pipe cleaner for a halo. Using a paint pen, date the bottom The tag reads as follows: This little angel is special you see; Because she is a part of me!! Her wings are my hands, Her body my feet!
And on our tree she'll look very sweet!!!!
