Toilet Paper Tube Angel Ornament

30 Minutes

I have something of a love affair with toilet paper tubes. I don't know, there's just something about them that gets my creative juices flowing. How can I turn that unmarked, cardboard cylinder into something new and out-of-the-ordinary?
It took me several months of picking one up and cutting, setting aside and cutting, followed by more setting aside and cutting to come up with this sweet little angel. Once I had her body/skirt figured out, the rest came together easily.
After painting the tube with cream-colored craft paint, and then cutting strips for the skirt (leaving about 3/4" uncut at the top), you'll tightly roll the whole thing together and glue it at the top.
Add a painted craft store wooden "head", some gold cord for a halo, and a bit lace around the neck, and you're more than half way done.
On my blog you'll find a pattern for the wings and more detailed instructions to help you put one of these angels together. I think she'll look sweet hanging from the Christmas tree.
