How to Make a Junky Angel From Furniture Parts

Today I'm creating this angel that captured my 
imagination and my heart.

Angel with halo and wings

Using pieces from around the workshop including a broken chair and stained fence pieces led me to create this one of a kind junky angel.

The head is a spindle from an old bed.

Her flowing skirt is a piece of chicken wire and rusty ribbon.

Her lovely wings are the hinges from an old gate.

These pieces along with pieces from my shop

created a lovely angel that can sit by the Christmas hearth or welcome guests at the front door.
