25 Days of Crafts! Day 6: Angel Tree Topper




In years past, we topped the tree with a paper star I made out of white vellum. This year, I wanted to try an angel. Luckily, I have a mess of craft supplies, so I was able to make this with things around the house. The cone is a thread spool I acquired while teaching studio art. I used to scavenge for simple shaped objects for still life studies: cube, sphere, cylinder, cone, etc. The angel stands about 8 inches high, so hopefully it won't be too small. The head is a wooden ball I glued to the spool. I added a halo made from tinsel. The "wings" are silver tulle I had on hand. Trim and snowflakes were the finishing touches.
