Shabby Angel Wing Ornaments

"Angels We Have Heard on High"

What a peaceful way to depict Christmas.
"With Angels all around."

Raising their beautiful voices in song
to declare the coming of the Messiah..

Watching over us all..
Taking the utmost care to guard and protect.

I can remember when I was a little girl,
the thought of Angels at Christmas
always gave me the warmest, most peaceful
feelings inside.
A feeling that I was in the best of care
and no matter what,
everything was going to be ok.

Today, I'm sharing with you some ornaments
that I have made.

They would make wonderful gifts or little additions to
a Christmas shop display to sell.

I used an angel wing die to cut the shapes. First, out of
some stiff cardboard that I had saved and then
from the vintage sheet music to cover the cardboard.

I cut popsicle sticks and I hot glued them to the
back to hold the wings just the right 
distance apart.

I used a glue stick to adhere the paper to the cardboard.

And then I began the fun process of 
decorating them with vintage doilies, buttons, and 
 other things that I had on hand.

The embellishments were attached with 
Tacky glue and hot glue.

For the hanger, I tore a strip of white sheet and
and after centering the strip, I used hot glue to attach 
the strip.

And...
Here they are!


I hope that your Christmas celebration 
has already started and the 
stresses of the season are few
and the blessings be many! 

Here's a thought for the season:

"What is Christmas?"

It is tenderness for the past, 
courage for the present,
hope for the future.
It is a fervent wish that every cup may
overflow with blessings rich and eternal,
and that every path may lead to peace. 


Thank you so much for stopping by!
 Love...Joy.. and Peace to you,
Tamara
