This is another monthly Craft Challenge. I love creating alongside these lovely ladies:
Beverly | Across the Blvd * Painted Logs for Cozy Winter Decor
Niki | Life as as LEO Wife * Flocked Pinecone Christmas Wreath
My inspiration comes from American Farmhouse Style magazine. How CUTE are these?! Sadly, when I went shopping for these specific items, not everything was available. I didn't let that stop me!
Here's our base character. This idea would certainly work for shepherds or wise men, but today, we are making angels! It took me a while to figure out their hair!
Here's what worked well or long, thick hair. Ribbon from my stash was cut 9 - 10 inches long, then folded in half, and stacked onto a T pin. The pile of ribbon was pressed into the center of my styrofoam head.
Next the ribbon was spread around half of the styrofoam ball. Lastly, I glued one more strip of ribbon across the top to cover the T pin.
The wings are actually cardstock butterflies cut using my Silhouette cutting machine.
A bit of bling was added here and there. That's the fun part!
Here's the trio, ready to sing,
“Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”
Your angels are so different from the original inspiration, isn't that the beauty of making things yourself? I also love the fact your have sparkly do dads in your craft stash - don't we all! And what a sweet way to use them :-)ReplyDelete
These are so pretty, Marci. I love how creative you were with using items from your craft stash.ReplyDelete
The red stripe fabric is so pretty. A very darling design piece.ReplyDelete

How creative! You did an amazing job recreating the originals with your own flair. They look beautiful!ReplyDelete
Your angels look so sweet! You did a great job making their robes and my fave is using ribbon for hair.ReplyDelete
Your angels are lovely! I love the button embellishments. I haven't seen angels like these before. They're very fun!ReplyDelete
