How to Make an Angel Christmas Ornament | Parents


-Hi, I’m Amanda Kingloff from Parents Magazine.
Today, I’m gonna show you how to make this absolutely adorable
little angel ornament that you can make with your kids.
For this project, you will need 2, 4-inch white doilies,
scissors, a thin marker, a hot glue gun or craft glue,
a 3/4 inch wooden bead, white string or yarn,
wire, wire snips and a thin string. To make the angel’s
body, fold the doily into quarters. At the top point,
trim with scissors to make shoulders and then narrow
our point so it can fit snuggly into the bead. Just
set that aside for now. -Cut a piece of wire about
3 to 4 inches long. Wrap the white yarn a few times around 3 or 4 your fingers or if
your child is doing it, she can try wrapping it
around the bottle of the glue. -Line up the yarn
in the center of the wire and twist a small loop around the yarn. Snip the loops of the
yarn. Now, take your bead and insert a point of
the wire into the top hole then glue the point
of the doily into the bottom hole. Add a dab
of glue to secure the wire flat to the back of
the dress. -Fold another doily in half and cut off
the lace part. Fold the lace strip into quarters and
glue the crease to cover the wire. To add the
face of the angel, just take your black pen and
draw two eyes and a mouth. Twist the top of the wire into a loop and add a thin string
to hang it from your tree. And that’s it. Just
a few simple steps to make this sweet, little angel
ornament for your Christmas tree.
