Isn’t she pretty with her golden wings and curly golden hair?

She can also stand on a mantel, a table, a sideboard or hand on a door knob or in a window. In other words, she’s versatile and can add some whimsey where ever you want an angel to be.

The materials and instructions are easy. You can find them on our Easy Angel Crafts Spiral Wire Angel Ornament web page.

We outline all of the materials and how-to steps with accompanying pictures. We also suggest alternative wire if you cannot find the natural covered floral wire shown here.

The natural covered floral wire can be found in the floral area of craft stores. It’s inexpensive. One roll of the wire will make many of the Easy Angel Crafts Spiral Wire Angel Ornaments.

Several made of slightly different sizes and shapes of the spiral could decorate a tablescape for a dinner or stand among greenery above a fireplace.

The Easy Angel Crafts Spiral Wire Angel Ornament is fun, easy and inexpensive.

Enjoy!

Paper Angel – Woven

Posted by admin on December 1, 2010

Just posted, our Woven Paper Angel uses simple materials and tools along with a basic basket weave technique to finish a pretty angel.

Woven paper angel hanging on wall

This angel uses our simple pattern and scrap paper cut into strips then woven into a heavier paper (such as a paper grocery bag). The hardest part of the project is the patience required to keep the strips of paper straight. (Don’t load up on caffeine before starting this!) 

Forget about perfection and just have fun, the angel will finish beautifully.

The project can easily be translated into a group project with both adults and children. The adults can cut the paper and supervise the children’s weaving of the strips into the angel design.

Whether done by one or many, the finished product provides a simple, inexpensive and fun angel to decorate your home, to give as gifts or to accent wrapped packages.

Have fun!
