How to make a Shoulder Pad Angels - My shoulder pad angels have no faces, but you can paint a face if you want.


    Shoulder Pad Angels


    Supplies-

    Two shoulder pads
    One 1 inch wooden bead
    Pipe cleaners for halo and arms
    small flower
    glitter fabric paint for trim
    Hot glue or E-6000
    fishing line

    I take two halves of a pipe cleaner, insert into wooden bead and glue.
    One pipe cleaner will be for the halo and the other one will be to attach to shoulder pad for the dress. Bend the pipecleaner for the halo to the back of head and up, then form halo and twist the end to secure. Glue the other pipecleaner to the center of shoulder pad, so head comes just above top of shoulder pad. Then fold both sides of shoulder pad in towards the center to form dress and glue.

    Trim edges of dress with glitter fabric paint and let dry completely. Form wings with other shoulder pad, gathering in the middle. I just tie it with a piece of fishing line. Trim edges of wings with glitter fabric paint and let dry completely. Use glitter paint on the back of wings and dress and when completely dry, take another pipe cleaner, wrap around upper body to form arms, curl the ends of each arm to form hands with needle nose pliers.

    Insert wire stem of flower through each hand and twist wire to secure, cut off excess wire. Then glue wings to the back of the dress. My angels have no faces, but you can paint a face if you want. Attach fishing line with a loop to back of wings for hanging. I like to use contrasting shoulder pads, like I did with these. So save those shoulder pads and get busy making angels. :)
