Crafternoons: Do You Have Meaningful Decor You Display All Year Round?
I don't do a lot of paper crafts, so I almost skipped this weekends challenge. Then I remembered a craft that I did for my Mom, and realized I DID have something to share! And it is very near and dear to my heart. My Mom loved it, and even though it is meant as a Christmas decoration, she proudly displayed it on her bedroom dresser so that she "could always have it near". This is an angel made out of an old discarded hymn book. By dividing the pages, then folding half of those some folded 2/3 of the way down, and half 1/3 up, it creates her dress, the cover of the book makes her wings. I tore out Mom's favorite hymn and decoupaged it on to a styrofoam ball, made hair from brown moss, and a collar from a doil. It is even more precious to me now, Mom passed 3 years ago, now I have it displayed year round to brighten my day.
