Hello my Friends!!!!!!!
It’s an evening and usually I write a little bit earlier – but now I want to show you what I made this evening especially for You!!! A Christmas Challenge with Angels!
Sorry if it looks a little bit strange…this is my Christmas Challenge (with many others) and when trying to take these photos I felt that photografing was the biggest challenge in this project…
In the afternoon I was looking my Christmas notebook and found an old piece of newspaper… I think sent by my sister… and there was the ‘forgotten angel’. I never made the angel even I liked it very much! Now I wanted to make it so that I can show you this lovely decoration!
The idea is to use treasures like these…I didn’t count on my talent so I usead for this first angel some ‘fake’ lace I had.
For the head you can use those white balls which are suitable for needle felting. Put the ball in the middle of the lace and tight it with thread ‘in the neck’. I didn’t have those ‘white balls’ so I made the head from cotton. That’s not so good because you can’t pass even the wire. If you use the ‘white ball’ you can needle felt the face and to fix the hair.
Make with thicker wire a circle and around that with thin wire you can put pearls.
Then add 4 ribbons (each about 30 cm) to the circle (you can use 2 ribbons each 60 cm – then you don’t need a knot at the up end but you just catch them with wire, which is going to be also a small circle for hanging.
I think this idea is lovely… so I shall make an other one… better one…or perhaps many angels, with some different material.
Please don’t mind about these bad photos – I just couldn’t wait till tomorrow to show you this Angel and I hope you liked it enough to make yours! If you would like more photos about the details to see how it’s easy to make, please tell me!
