DIY Christmas Tree Angel

When we got our Christmas tree this year, I remembered that we didn’t have an angel or star to put on the top.

I started by taking some white thick cardboard and cut out a wing shape.

Step 1

Step 2

I cut out a little dress shape from the upcycled wedding gown pieces.

I used my glue gun to attach the “dress.”

Step 3

Step 4

I folded over the edge on the back before gluing it down. No raw edges.

I did discover that my bulb ends wouldn’t fit inside the top of the serger cone so I carved the inner piece out.

Step 5

Step 6

I put some white acrylic paint inside the clear bulbs and shook it. I let it dry.

While that dried, I added fur to my wings.

Step 7

Step 8

I trimmed up the edges so they’re in the shape of wings.

Next I glued my wings on.

Step 9

Step 10

I took a little lace and glue it around the neck of the angel.
