3.. Take your 5" piece of 7/8" Cream ribbon & fold in half, knot each end. Attach at back. Wrap around to hide chenille stem loosely and attach with glue. Position hands where you want them, glue in place. You can add a rose, some lace, pearls or any accent. You can also put some pearls around the neck.
4.. Make several coils w/glitter stem for halo. Attach to back.
5.. Cut your 4" piece of hackle feathers into 2 pieces. Fan out and glue to back of angel to make wings. Add a small piece of felt or fabric & glue a bar pin, attach to back or you can attach a cord to hand or pin it. You can also take some feather scraps and glue around the head for an added touch.
Hope you enjoy your angel!
