How to make a Coffee Filter Angel
C4 coffee filters
small amt of fiberfill
Glitter paint (opt) glue/glitter(opt)
gold pipe cleaner/chenille stems/string beads (for Halo)
directions as follows:
Take three coffee filters, place small amt of fiber
fill in center of goffee filter and form head. Take
7 or 8 inches if silk/satin ribbon and tie around the
fiberfill to form head. Tie ribbon into bow. Glue small rose or
small flower on top of bow tie.
Start seperating coffee filters apart to form dress
(fluffs dress out)
form a circle out of pipe cleaner to form a halo
Glue halo to top of head.
Take another coffee filter cut in half and gather/scrunch
the center of half filter to form wings use twist tie to
hold in place. Glue to center back. Glue small satin bow tie
to back of wings.
I take glitter paint in gold or silver and water it down a little,
paint and brush paint all over the top filter(dress area)
I glue fish line for ornament hanger.
How about angels made of crochet thread -- you make them
like a tassel, winding the thread around a piece
of cardboard about the size you would like
final length to be. Use a small styro ball or cotton
ball to make the "head" at top of tassel, tying
with thread under the "head". Wrap another batch of
threads to make arms, slip under the head and
tie below the arms. bring ends of arms together
to make praying hands.
Add a halo -- wire, beads, metal ring -- and glue wings made of lace or ribbon to the back. Your angels can hold ribbon roses, beads, etc in their hands.
