My Christmas Angel

Every Christmas season I wear my Christmas Angel pin.

I'll show you how to make them. You will need wooden wings and wooden rounds for the heads. A sparkly pipe cleaner for the halo, white paint, flesh colored paint, a pen that writes gold, pin backs, skinny ribbon, Q tip, rouge, mod podge and glue.

Paint the wings with two coats of white paint. Paint the heads flesh color. Let dry.

Draw the face on with the gold writing pen. Use a Q tip to dot rouge on her cheeks.

Make halos with the pipe cleaner and use the gold pen to decorate the wings with dashes and stars.

Glue the head onto the wings and glue the halo onto the head. Put a coat of mod podge on the angel. When it dries, this will give it a pretty sheen.

Tie the skinny ribbon into a bow and glue to the bottom of her face and glue the pin back onto the back of the wings.

If you wish to give them as a gift to someone, print off angel clip art on card stock and cut into rectangles. Punch holes into it for the pin back to go into.

Everyone needs a Christmas Angel to help them through each day.
