This pretty Easy Angel Crafts Stiff Felt Circles Angel is a modification of the Felt Circles Angel.
This one uses stiff felt, Make the Cut software and a cutting machine to simplify cutting all of the circles.

Cut two wing patterns from the soft white felt.
Use a blanket stitch to stitch the wings together with the silver yarn.
Connect the circles together with a needle and thread through the center of each circle.
Use the small button to hold the thread under the large circle on the bottom.
Add the wooden bead at the top with the thread running through the bead and a large button on top.
Add the silver yarn for the hanging loop through the button.
Tie the thread on top of the button to hold all of the circles, wooden bead and buttons together.
Attach the wings and the ribbon bow to the angel.
I did this little angel as an experiment and did not take pictures as I put the pieces together.
But, since several people have added the original version on their Pinterest pages, I decided to show this one as an alternative.
If you have a cutting machine that will cut stiffened felt - or even the softer felt, this little angel becomes much faster to do.
Of course, the blanket stitches add back time, but if you don't want to do any stitching, just include one layer for the wings like in the softer felt circles angel.
Have fun making this cute Easy Angel Crafts Stiff Felt Circles Angel.
