Darling DIY Christmas Ornaments for Pennies!
These darling little DIY Angels are cute as well as fun, easy to make and costs pennies!
You will need a paper bag for the wings, and some scrap fabric, you can use any type. I used an old sheet and then tea stained it. Twigs from the garden, and tinsel or pipe cleaners like I used for the halo and hanger. Then you can use type of embellishment that you would like. Use a glue gun for gluing.
For the pattern I free handed the body and then drew a Angel wing. After I cut out the wings I added a cute will stitch around them with the sewing machine but you can skip this step if you wish. Then I glued gunned all of the pieces together. They make great gift tags as well as tree ornaments.
Here is my favorite ornaments. To make: cardboard, I use old boxes, music (I used vintage sheet music) glitter, white glue, glue stick, and pipe cleaners, and a ink pad. These ornaments can be made with almost any materials.
For the pattern I used my cookie cutters, how easy is that? Cut one from the sheet music and cardboard, then use the glue stick to glue them together. Use a sponge and dab it on the ink pad, then take the sponge with the ink on it and dab around the edges of the ornament. Here I used green ink. The put white glue around the edges and sprinkle glitter on it. I took the title from the music and made a banner of it and glued it on.
Use a pipe cleaner it glue on the back for a hanger. Wa La! So beautiful and easy!
