Form a circle in the chenille wire for the doily paper angel's halo.
Fold the second paper doily in half.

Find the center of the folded edge by folding the paper doily into quarters.
Make a small pinch just at the folded corner to identify the center.
Punch holes on both sides of the center point and near the folded edge.
The holes should be roughly 1/4 inch apart and 1/8 inch from the folded edge.
Make folds at an angle through the punched holes.
This allows the wings to rest on the back of the doily paper angel cone.
