Hi Lori Jean! Just looking for some craft ideas for the church ladies. I'm thinking that they will enjoy this one. Thanks for all your wonderful ideas! You are a blessing to me....:O)

Hello
I made your ribbon angel and she turned out just lovely. Thank you for sharing the tutorial - I have blogged it and posted a link to your site. Such a lovely idea and so pretty!

Val said...

Very good tutorial! This Angel will make great ornaments/pkg tags for our Christmas Angel Tree project!
Had just one idea for the halo tho. I saw great silver & gold pipe cleaners in the craft section at Wal-Mart. They could be hot glued to the top of the bell for her halo.
Thanks so much for sharing this great tutorial! God Bless!

Love this craft, it's really cute. One of my co-workers and I, make ornaments for our co-workers every year for Chrstmas. This is what we will be making this year.
Thank you☺

Just a thought for the halo, You could use a button with 2 holes in it. Thread the gold string through the 2 holes to hold it on and tie a knot under it just above the angel's head to keep it sort of floating. Love the angle patter!

thanks for sharing!
for a halo, have you thought of the "wedding bands" in the craft area - cheap, plastic - think it would work

I have to tell you just how happy I am that I found this on Pinterest. I have some ribbon I perchised with my mother 5 years ago and never figured out what I wanted to make with it. My mother passed 3 years ago and This Christmas her ribbon will be hanging from our tree in the shape of angels;)

Love this-THANK YOU for sharing! I am going to try using glitter puff paint to paint on a circle halo. I will do the opposite color of the metal of the jingle bell. Might try hot gluing a glitter pipe cleaner circle too!

Hi, I just came across this from pinterest and love the idea! We WILL be making these for Christmas this year. My idea fort he halo would be to use the bit of blue covered wire that you snipped off the top for the dress. Just bend it around a dowel or something round and leave a tab hanging down to hot glue to the head. It will match the dress and wings perfectly! Thanks for the idea.

Hi. I have made your angels & actually sold some for Christmas ornaments. As for the halos, I have put beads on wire & made circles & hot-glued them to the bell. I have also made hooks to hang them on the tree. Thanks for your post.

I made these little angels to attach to christmas party invitations. They turned out amazing! Thank you so much for the wonderful tutorial.

Ashley said...

Cute angels. I used colored small Christmas ornaments instead of bells for the head. Mine happen to have silver tops on them. So when you glue them on the angels it looks like a halo. Love this idea, the kids and I made a bunch of these!!!

Marchelle said...

To solve the halo problem I just used 20 gauge wire to match my angel. Attach it to the top of the bell with a small loop - straighten a little of the wire make a loop around your finger when you come to the straightened part go straight up then make a hanging loop. (I'll visit you on pinterest and leave a pic so you can see it because I'm not sure I could follow these directions - lol)

Melanie said...

I started making these Angel Ornaments 15 yrs ago. I use pipe cleaners for the halos. Wrap around a pencil for the size then hot glue it to the head.

MonicaB said...

Thank you for such an easy to follow video!! It's a breath of fresh air to watch a tutorial where the host explains each step completely. I just finished my first angel and looking forward to checking out your other videos. Merry Christmas!

Jon Chapman said...

Check out my Pints under Holiday Crafts I posted the one that I made.
I just love your little angles!! For a halo I used a pipe cleaner, I made a small circle into a collar, letting the stem go up creating another circle a little smaller which is for the halo, gluing down the larger circle before you put the bell on.

Thanks for the wonderful idea

I took the edge that I cut off the skirt and cut all the fabric off of it. Then I used it for a halo and glued it to the back of the bell. Turned out adorable.

My daughter (7) and I made these and figured out a halo. We used the shiny gold or silver pipe cleaner to make the halo. I then tied a knot with the string on each side of the halo before knotting the top of the string. Very cute gift for her religious ed teachers.

I made these last year for gifts. They were big hits.
so easy, too.

I've been making these for probably 35 years. We have always used wooden doll heads with painted faces or a pearl bead is nice. The wooden heads have little faces painted on and both have holes in the top and bottom. Thread a pipe gold or silver shiny Christmas pipe cleaner thru the holes, then fashion a halo on top and tuck the bottom into the skirt pleats. We use 2 sets of pleated ribbon folded in the middle and secure on each side of the angel dress pleats for the wings. I use approximately the same amount of pleats, but much smaller. The last I made were from red and green ribbon that is kinda stiff, but not wired. Using lace is pretty with the pearl head. We never glued or stapled; instead we used very tiny wire wrapped around it to hold together and made a large loop in the back to bend up use to hang the ornament, The finishing touch is to use tiny satin ribbon tied in a bow to cover the wire that holds the dress/skirt and wings. Just another options! Enjoy!
