Angel Craft


For those who love crafts...these were so simple and easy to make. Made these probably going on approx. 20 plus years ago and they're still hanging in there.

Materials needed:

1 Styrofoam Ball for head
1 Styrofoam Cone for body
Gauze for gown cut into a strip the length to cover her completely
2 White Chenille Stem for Halo and arms
Ribbon
Rubber Band
Piece of wax paper to stand the angel on while glued gown is drying

  • Glue the Styrofoam ball to the tip of the cone
  • Stick piece of chenille into each side of the cone, glue, and bend to form arms and twist at front as if hands together.
  • Cut a strip of gauze long enough to cover the complete angel front to back including the head cone.
  • Soak the strip of gauze you will be using for the gown in white glue soaking it pretty good. I used regular glue and it dries clear.
  • While wet, drape it over the angel covering the complete angel from front to back over the head.
  • Use a rubber band around the neck area to form the gauze to the neck area.
  • Tie Ribbon around the waist area to form as a belt
  • Form her gown how you like with some flowing on the floor.
  • Let dry thoroughly.
  • Cut some gauze wings (I don't still have the template, but you can find some around the web or just form your own wings).
  • Glue the wings to the back of the angel
  • Form a halo and glue to top of the head by sticking a bit glued into the ball so it stands above the head

I made two. The size of the Angel will be based on the size of the cone you buy.

Enjoy!!
