The Steps for How to Make the Easy Angel Crafts: Wire Cross Angel Ornament:

Cut the 10 inch length of yarn. (We used size 10 crochet yarn.)

Make a bend in the wire 5 1/8 inches from one end.

Easy Angel Crafts Wire Cross Angel Step 1 make first bend in the wire

Make the second bend in the chenille wire 5 1/8 inches from the opposite end. The result will be a U-shape with a base 1 7/8 inches wide.

Easy Angel Crafts Wire Cross Angel Step 2 add second bend in the wire

The next bend is made 2 1/4 inches from one of the ends.

Easy Angel Crafts Wire Cross Angel Step 3 make third bend in the wire

From the opposite end, make another bend in the chenille wire is 2 1/4 inches from the end. The result is a loose loop.

Easy Angel Crafts Wire Cross Angel Step 4 add fourth bend in the wire

Make another bend 1 1/4 inches from one end of the chenille wire.

Easy Angel Crafts Wire Cross Angel Step 5 add fifth bend to the wire

The next bend in the chenille wire is 1 1/4 inches from the opposite end.

Easy Angel Crafts Wire Cross Angel Step 6 add sixth bend

Measure up 1 1/2 inches from each side of the base of the original U-shape. Cross the two wire legs at the 1 1/2 inch points. Make a half twist to hold the crossed wires in place.

Easy Angel Crafts Wire Cross Angel Step 7 cross wire and make half twist

Make the first wing of the Easy Angel Crafts Wire Cross Angel by pulling one of the ends across the twist point. Fold 1/4 inch of the end of the wire behind the twist point.

Easy Angel Crafts Wire Cross Angel Step 8 make first wing

Pull the other end of the wire across the twist point and fold 1/4 inch of the wire behind to form the second wing shape.

Easy Angel Crafts Wire Cross Angel Step 9 make second wing

Thread one end of the yarn through the open body portion of the Easy Angel Crafts Wire Cross Angel ornament.

Easy Angel Crafts Wire Cross Angel Step 11 pass yarn through body

Pull the ends of the yarn to be even. Tie a simple square knot in the yarn above the wings.

Easy Angel Crafts Wire Cross Angel Step 11 tie knot around wire

Thread the yarn through the hole in the bead. (Note: the beads in our examples had large holes. A smaller hole through the bead works better, but it must be large enough for both pieces of yarn to go through.) 

Easy Angel Crafts Wire Cross Angel Step 12 thread yarn through bead

Thread the two pieces of yarn through two different holes in the button.

Easy Angel Crafts Wire Cross Angel Step 13 thread yarn through button

Pull the yarn snugly, but not too tightly, and tie a simple square knot near the button. (Pulling too tightly will force the bead in front of the wings rather than above.)

Easy Angel Crafts Wire Cross Angel Step 14 tie knot near button

Tie another knot near the ends of the yarn to form the hanging loop. Trim the ends of the yarn, if necessary.

Easy Angel Crafts Wire Cross Angel Step 16 make loop in yarn

Hang your simple little Easy Angel Crafts Wire Cross Angel ornament wherever an angel is needed!
