I've been busy for months making all kinds of ornaments and it's almost go time! 

Today I'm showing you how I made angel ornaments with glittered wings.  I searched my workshop for pieces I could use and here's what I came up with.

I had a whole bunch of wooden dowels from a math toy I disassembled recently, they just happened to have holes in them for the hangers!

I added heads to the dowels using mini wooden candle cups. 

I painted each cup with a skin color and added a grommet piece on top for a halo.

I let the bodies dry in these little amber jars. (which I turned into little snowman ornaments when I was finished with the angels)

I drew the shape of an angel wing and traced it onto glittered card stock for the wings. 

Each angel got a little angel face using a fine point sharpie marker.

The angels are all for sale packaged in cello bags to protect the wings.
