Step 1

1. Paint your wooden sphere peach then set it aside to dry. Your could opt to use a flesh tone color as well.


Step 2

2. Hot glue the felt to the styrofoam. Be careful the glue gun will be hot. You can try other colors of felt or fabric and make your angel totally unique!


Step 3

3. Trim off excess felt. (save for later)


Step 4

4. Create angel arms. Take a pipe cleaner and fold it twice. Twist the pipe cleaner together. (make 2)

7. Fold a gold doily in half and press the fold till flat.


Step 8

8. Glue the gold doily to the back of the angel to make wings.


Step 9

9. Finish painting the wooden sphere by painting a face. I added eyes and a mouth. You could also add a nose and eyebrows if you like.


Step 10

10. Glue the head on the angels body.


Step 11

11. Glue the gold ribbons on the angels head to make hair. Longer hair looks best, but you could make the hair as long or as short as you like.


Step 12

12. Cut a piece out of you other doily and glue it to the angels dress to make a decoration.


Step 13

13. Roll the stars into a circle and place it upon the angels head as a halo.


Step 14

14. Cut a small rectangle out of cardboard and glue it in the angels hands to make a book.


Step 15

15. You're all done! Put your angel in a nice place for all to see. Merry Christmas!
