1. Ribbon angel ornaments
Preserving her mom's crafting legacy, Niky from The House on Silverado discovered her notes and supplies for making ribbon angel ornaments.
Cutting and looping wired ribbon forms the body, while folded ribbon creates elegant wings. Attaching the wings and head completes the form, and a bow and halo, made from twine, give these angels character. Niky added her own touch with a halo.
Customization options abound – buttons for detail, varying ribbon patterns for style – making these angels a sentimental addition to your festive decor.
2. Tulle angel ornaments
