The Steps for How to Make the Easy Angel Crafts: Tulle Angel:

Cut or break the chenille wire in half. I didn't want to dull my scissors or find wire cutters, so I broke this piece in half. Just bend it back and forth several times to break the wires.

Easy Angel Crafts Tulle Angel step 1 cut chenille wire in half

Wrap one of the chenille wires around the tip of your finger to make a small circle for the halo. Bend the end of the wire on itself to hold it in place.

Easy Angel Crafts Tulle Angel step 2 make a small circle for the halo on one end

Insert the straight end of the chenille wire through the wooden bead.

Easy Angel Crafts Tulle Angel step 3 insert the straight end of the chenille wire through the wooden bead

Thread the yarn needle with the yarn for the hair.

Insert the needle from the bottom of the bead and pull it through the bead and out the halo end.

Leave one end the length of the straight end of the chenille wire.

Cut the "hair" end roughly 4 inches long.

Easy Angel Crafts Tulle Angel step 4 begin adding yarn hair

Continue adding the yarn hair until you cannot push the needle through the bead.

I was able to get 7 strands of yarn before I could not push the needle through.

Easy Angel Crafts Tulle Angel step 5 add more yarn hair

Tie a square knot (hard knot) in the yarns below the wooden bead under the angel's chin.

Easy Angel Crafts Tulle Angel step 6 tie a knot in the yarns below the wooden bead

Make a circle in the chenille wire adjacent to the yarn knot.

Wrap the wire end around the chenille wire to complete the circle.

My fingers are holding the hair at the halo. The circle for the tulle is to the right.

Easy Angel Crafts Tulle Angel step 7 make a circle in the chenille wire for the tulle

Push the yarn ends through the chenille circle below the angel's chin.

Easy Angel Crafts Tulle Angel step 8 push the yarn through the newly made circle

Cut five pieces of the tulle ribbon 14 inches long.

Easy Angel Crafts Tulle Angel step 9 cut the tulle

Fold one of the tulle pieces in half.

Insert the folded end through the chenille wire circle from the bottom forming a two-inch loop above the chenille wire.

Easy Angel Crafts Tulle Angel step 10 fold tulle in half

Pull the ends of the tulle through the loop of tulle.

Easy Angel Crafts Tulle Angel step 11 pull ends through the loop

Pull the tulle ends firmly to lock the tulle around the loop of chenille wire.

Easy Angel Crafts Tulle Angel step 12 pull the tulle ends firmly

Add the remaining pieces of tulle in the same way.

Easy Angel Crafts Tulle Angel step 13 add rest of the tulle

Cut the wired ribbon for the wings to 14 inches in length.

Form a circle with the ribbon and overlap the ends in the middle.

Fold the circle in half with the overlapped ends in the middle.

Easy Angel Crafts Tulle Angel step 14 fold wired ribbon

Pinch the middle of the ribbon and wrap the second half of the chenille wire around the center.

Twist the chenille wire twice to hold the ribbon.

Easy Angel Crafts Tulle Angel step 15 wrap ribbon with chenille wire

Add the ribbon to the back of the angel.

Wrap the ends of the chenille wire around the yarn and wire below the angel's chin.

Twist the wire twice.

Connect the ends of the chenille wire together to form the angel's arms and hands.

Easy Angel Crafts Tulle Angel step 16 add the ribbon to the angel

Cut the plain ribbon to a 12-inch length.

Tie it to the base of the halo.

Easy Angel Crafts Tulle Angel step 17 tie ribbon to halo

Tie the ends of the ribbon together and trim.

For a different look, the next tulle angel included red tulle ribbon, red metallic chenille wire, red yarn, gold and red wired ribbon wings and a red and gold hanging ribbon loop.

In addition, this angel's hair was separated into the individual yarn strands to appear to be more hair.
