The Steps for How to Make the Easy Angel Crafts: Mustache Angel:
Print the Mustache Angel pattern.
Cut around the mustache pattern.
Position the pattern on a double thickness of the craft felt.
Cut the felt around the pattern to yield two mustache shapes.
Dot glue on the inside of one of the two felt shapes.
Position the second felt piece over the glue dots making sure to match edges.
Wrap the yarn around your splayed fingers five or six times in roughly a four-inch circle.
Cut a piece of yarn 15 inches long.
Fold the yarn bundle in half.
Wrap the 15-inch piece of yarn around the middle of the bundle and tie a square or hard knot.
Tie a knot in the ends of the yarn to form a yarn loop.
Trim any excess yarn.
Place a generous dot of glue at the middle top of the felt shape.
Position the middle of the yarn bundle over the dot of glue.
Place glue on the back of the button (or circular shape).
Position the button centered just below the yarn bundle.
Display the finished Mustache Angel wherever a fun little angel can watch over you.
Instead of gold and white, the next Mustache Angel uses blue felt, silver yarn and a brown and white button.
These angels are whimsical but just fun and easy, too.
The hardest part of making these little decorations is allowing time for the glue to set.
The ornament is so fast and inexpensive to make that you can quickly make a lot of the ornaments.
The Mustache Angel is also a great group project for family, church or seniors.
