Tutorial: Wire Angel Ornaments

Wire angel Christmas ornaments are easy to make and add some sparkle to your holidaysI want to begin this post by saying thank you to my friend Cathy. She occasionally sends me pins on Pinterest that might make good blog tutorials. A few months ago she sent me this wire angel pin. At the time. I wasn't quite ready to start thinking about ornaments, so I saved the idea on my holiday board so I could revisit it later.

Well, Christmas is about a month away and I have been in the ornament making mood! So I found some pretty beads and wire and set to work.



Print out the ornament template. Each square on the grid should be 1/4 inch.

Cut a piece of wire that's 18 inches long. Use your round nosed pliers to form a small circle on one end of the wire.

The circle is the angel's hand.
Line up the wire hand with the hand on the template. Bend the wire so that it is the same shape as the wing.
Once you reach the bottom of the skirt, bend the wire. It is easiest to use your round nosed pliers to bend it here.
Continue bending the wire in the shape of the template.
Trim the wire so there is between 1/4 and 1/2 inch past the first hand.
Use your round nosed pliers to form a second small circle hand. I like to interlock he hands to give the ornament a little extra stability.
Choose a bead for the head of the angel.
Pull the ends of the ribbon up through the body of the wire angel. Then push the ends back down through the ribbon loop.
The ribbon should look like this.
Slide the bead down the ribbon and knot the ends of the ribbon together.
Of course, every angel needs a halo.

Cut a 3-4 inch piece of wire and use the round nosed pliers to make a spiral that is about the size of a dime.
Bend the halo wire about 1/2 inch from the end.
Apply a tiny bit of glue to the tip of the halo wire.
Slide the glued end of the halo into the top of the bead. Let the glue dry completely.
After the glue is dry, your angel is ready to hang on the Christmas tree.

If one wire angel ornament is nice, a whole flock of colorful Christmas angels is even better!
