Christmas Angels

December 1, 2012

I wanted to share with you the Angel Christmas Tree ornaments that my grandchildren and I created this past week.  Every year my grandchildren help me to put the tree up and then we have to make something new to add to it.  I saw these cute little angel ornaments that Cindee Wilkinson made and thought that they would be relatively easy for the children to make.  Cindee shared a link to a great video tutorial by Kay Kalthoff which made it very easy to duplicate them.

I used some retired Flirtatious Designer Series Paper and some beads I found at my local Spotlight store.  The buttons are from various Designer Button packs.  The Paper Doilies were cut from Very Vanilla card.

My grandchildren range in age from 2-1/2 to nearly 8 so they had varying degrees of help.  Of course I didn’t let them use the hot glue gun by themselves but they all added glue and held the various pieces together.

They look pretty cute hanging onto the tree too.  Many thanks to Cindee and Kay for providing the inspiration and the tutorial.

Bye for now, Kris.
