LACE ANGEL ORNAMENT
8 inches of 11/2 inch gathered lace
22 mm Liberty bell
20 mm pre finished natural wooden bead
yellow/blond "mini curl" curly hair
3 mm white satin ribbon for bow
15 mm gold ribbon for bow wings
10 mm gold loopy trim for hallow
Glue the bead, head, to the liberty bell. Gather lace with a running stitch and gather around "neck" of angel, between bell and bead, secure with glue.
Tie a single loop bow, with tails, in proportion to the angel with the 15 mm gold ribbon and glue on back for wings. Make a small single loop bow, with tails, with the 3 mm white satin ribbon and glue to the front of angel at the neck. A single loop bow is a bow with one loop on each side.
Glue "mini curl" curly hair to head. The hair must be the mini curls not the large curls.
Make a hallow using the gold loopy trim, approx. 6 cm. Glue a 3 inch piece of the gold string to either side of hallow, this is to hang the angel from. Glue hallow to head and hair of angel.
Draw a face on the angel. I just make sleeping eyes with eyelashes, a small semi circle for the nose and a small solid circle for the mouth.
This angel can be made using any size of liberty as long as everything else is in proportion to it. I have made smaller ones and larger ones but I like this size best on the Christmas tree.
Have fun making them, I sure enjoy making them to give away. They look really nice on parcels instead of bows or even just on a card as a small gift.
