Two little angels

I haven't been doing any crafting or making my own lately ... so I decided to show you a couple of things I bought years ago at craft fairs.

Two little angels... each totally different and yet pretty cute...

The first, I sit on a shelf or table where her little 'legs' can dangle.  The legs are made of narrow gold ribbon with bells on the end of each. is glued to the inside of a small clay plant pot that has been pained gold.  Her head is a large wooden bead onto which a bit of yarn has been glued and also some eyes and lips painted.  On the back... a bit of tulle gathered to look like some wings and a gold string for a hanger or for a halo if you don't hang it.  Her arms are small pieces of pipe cleaners.

The other one is a stitched and stuffed fabric head.. attached onto the top of a room deodorizer.. like Glade brand... just eyes painted on... some curly rayon 'hair'... I'm sure you could also use any yarn.  Some fabric stitched wings on the back of a little piece of gathered fabric for her dress.  Her arms are just a piece of ribbon with one soft knot in the centre and a star glued on.. ends tucked into little poufs of fabric sleeves.

Both cute and yet, totally different ...

Hi Vee,

Such cute little Angels.
I am like you have not been able to get into much crafting - have a bear waiting to be jointed and must get around to it.
Happy New Year and best wishes.

These are both so sweet! I remember making something similar to the second one years ago.
