This is such a simple project that adults and kids alike will enjoy making all sorts of variations! Pretty little angels to decorate windows or the Christmas tree. Great for craft bazaars and church craft sales!

You will need

Craft stick or tongue depressor
corrugated cardboard
white felt
cream or light yellow felt
beige or light yellow yarn
gold cord
small rope or raffia
2 small round buttons, any color
small scrap of material, trimmed with pinking shears
black fine tip marker

What you do

Cut 2 dresses out from the white felt. The dresses do not need to be perfect, just a simple drawing of shoulders, arms and a body. Lay both pieces of felt on top of each other on work surface so that they match exactly. Flip one piece over, as if opening like a book. Glue craft stick onto the bottom dress felt so that a small amount of the stick hangs over the bottom of the dress, and a larger portion sticks out above the neckline.

Onto the cuffs, glue cream colored felt circles on as hands so that half of the circle is on the white felt, the other half is hanging over. Fold top piece of felt back over (as if closing a book) the bottom half, sandwiching the craft stick between the two dress cutouts. Glue the top piece of felt to the bottom piece.

Turn body over, lay it face down on the work surface. Glue cardboard wings, corrugated side facing the work surface, onto the upper area of the bodice, covering shoulders and halfway up the top of the craft stick.

Make a loop from gold cord and glue to the back of the head. Turn ornament over and place face up onto the work surface. Glue some yarn on top of angel's head, you can fray it a bit with a comb first, if you like.

Tie a small bow from rope or raffia and glue to collar area. Glue on buttons and fabric scrap as pictured. Add eyes, nose, and mouth with a fine tipped black marker. Add faux stitching around the edges of the dress with a fine tip marker.
