Gold cord (can also use yarn or narrow ribbon)
Wooden bead - 20mm
Wire - 20 gauge gold-colored craft wire
Needle nose pliers
The Steps for How to Make the Easy Angel Crafts: Eyelet Lace Angel:
Collect the materials and tools.
Cut one piece of the 4-inch wide eyelet lace 8 inches long.
Cut one piece of the 2.5-inch ribbon 8 inches long.
Cut one piece of the gold cord 8 inches long.
Cut one piece of the 20 gauge craft wire 8 inches long.
Should have called this the 8-inch angel. LOL
Push the craft wire through the gathered edge of the eyelet lace.
Push the lace on the wire and gather tightly with roughly one inch of the wire on one side of the gathers and the remaining wire on the opposite side.
Twist the wire ends together tightly.
Make a circle with the 8-inch length of ribbon and overlap the ends.
Gently fold the circle with the overlapped ends on one side to begin forming the wings.
Pinch the middle of the gently folded wings and place between the wire ends on the back of the eyelet lace.
Wrap the two ends of the craft wire around the middle of the folded ribbon for the wings and twist tightly together.
Bend the tightly twisted wire downward.
Wrap the long wire end under the folded ribbon and back up in front of the folded wings.
Push the craft wire up through the 20mm bead.
Push the bead tightly down on the wire.
Make a small circle around the tip of the needle nose pliers at the top of the bead. This helps hold the bead in position and will hold the hanging loop.
Twist the wire into a larger loop for the halo shape.
Bend the end of the wire and push it into the bead.
Push the gold cord through the small wire loop at the top of the bead.
Pull the ends of the gold cord even and tie into a knot to form the hanging loop.
Make any adjustments to fill out the wings and position the halo.
