What you will need:
5″ X 10″ piece of chenille
One 6″ fabric Battenberg bell
One small natural round knit bag
One 3 1/2″ wooden primitive star
Heavy wire 9″ and 18″
24″ fine gold wire
One yard of 1/16″ white satin ribbon
Two yards of linen thread
Two 3 mm black beads
Different size dowel sticks or paint brush handles
Instructions for the project:
Step One-Paint all sides of the star with raw umber. Let dry. Thin the gold paint with a small amount of water. Dab a cotton ball in the paint and blot excess paint on paper towel. Lightly dab on the star to give a rusted look. Let dry. Step Two-Fold the chenille in half, right sides together, to form a square. Sew the sides using a 1/4″ seam allowance to form a bag. Turn right side out. Hand-stitch 1/2″ from the top edge using the 1/16″ ribbon, starting and ending at the center front.
Step Two-Lightly stuff with fiberfill.
Step Three-Stuff the small natural bag and tighten the drawstring for a head. Knot and trim the threads. Hand-sew the beads for eyes and add blush for cheeks. Place the head inside the top of the body. Pull the ribbon to fit snugly around the head. Tie the ribbon in a bow, glue to secure the head to the body.
Step Four-Bend the 9″ piece of wire into two circles for the halo. Glue the halo to the back of the head. Trim the bell for wings. Glue the wings to the angel. Glue the star to the back of the angel’s head. Wrap the wires around different sized dowels or paint brush handles. Form into a heart shape and glue to the front of the angel.
Step Five-Thread a 9″ piece of ribbon through the back of the angel’s head. Tie in a knot for a hanger
