Wired ribbon 14 inches of 2 1/2 to 3 inches wide
Plain ribbon 12 inches of 1/4 to 3/8 inches wide
Gold chenille wire 12 inches long
Round wooden bead 3/4 inch diameter
Yarn for hair
Yarn needle (to get the yarn through the hole in the bead)
The Steps for How to Make the Easy Angel Crafts: Tulle Angel:
Cut or break the chenille wire in half.
I didn't want to dull my scissors or find wire cutters, so I broke this piece in half.
Just bend it back and forth several times to break the wires.
Wrap one of the chenille wires around the tip of your finger to make a small circle for the halo.
Bend the end of the wire on itself to hold it in place.
Insert the straight end of the chenille wire through the wooden bead.
Thread the yarn needle with the yarn for the hair.
Insert the needle from the bottom of the bead and pull it through the bead and out the halo end.
Leave one end the length of the straight end of the chenille wire.
Cut the "hair" end roughly 4 inches long.
Continue adding the yarn hair until you cannot push the needle through the bead.
I was able to get 7 strands of yarn before I could not push the needle through.
Tie a square knot (hard knot) in the yarns below the wooden bead under the angel's chin.
Make a circle in the chenille wire adjacent to the yarn knot.
Wrap the wire end around the chenille wire to complete the circle.
My fingers are holding the hair at the halo. The circle for the tulle is to the right.
Push the yarn ends through the chenille circle below the angel's chin.
Cut five pieces of the tulle ribbon 14 inches long.
Fold one of the tulle pieces in half.
Insert the folded end through the chenille wire circle from the bottom forming a two-inch loop above the chenille wire.
Pull the ends of the tulle through the loop of tulle.
Pull the tulle ends firmly to lock the tulle around the loop of chenille wire.
Add the remaining pieces of tulle in the same way.
Cut the wired ribbon for the wings to 14 inches in length.
Form a circle with the ribbon and overlap the ends in the middle.
Fold the circle in half with the overlapped ends in the middle.
Pinch the middle of the ribbon and wrap the second half of the chenille wire around the center.
Twist the chenille wire twice to hold the ribbon.
Add the ribbon to the back of the angel.
Wrap the ends of the chenille wire around the yarn and wire below the angel's chin.
Twist the wire twice.
Connect the ends of the chenille wire together to form the angel's arms and hands.
Cut the plain ribbon to a 12-inch length.
Tie it to the base of the halo.
Tie the ends of the ribbon together and trim.
