Canning Lid Angel Ornament
Do you need an angel on your Christmas tree? Here’s a pretty little singing angel to bring a little Christmas cheer to the season! These are fun to make, lovely to look at and they make great gifts!
To make this angel ornament you will need:
Peach craft paint
White craft glue
6-inch piece of lace
10-inch piece of ribbon or yarn
Gold pipe cleaner
Mailing or masking tape
Markers – pink and black
Begin by painting the front of the canning lid with peach paint. Allow it to dry completely. Dip your finger in white craft glue and “draw” two circles in the canning lid as cheeks.
Sprinkle the cheeks with glitter and tap off the excess.
To make the wings, cut the lace in half so you have two 3-inch pieces. Pinch the bottom together to create a fan.
Use tape to attach to the back of the canning lid. Make sure they align with the cheeks by flipping it over and looking before continuing.
Bend the top of the pipe cleaner into a circle and twist to secure it to itself. Tape it to the back of the canning lid so that the circle and about 1/2-inch of the stem are sticking out above the lid. Use scissors to trim off the excess pipe cleaner.
Fold ribbon into a loop for the hanger and tape to the back of the canning lid.
Cut pink felt into a circle and glue over everything on the back of the canning lid. Place something heavy, like a book, on top and let the glue dry.
Alternatively, parents can use a glue gun to attach the felt to make this step quicker.
Turn the ornament face up. Bend the pipe cleaner circle toward you to create the halo. Use a black marker to add the eyes and a pink marker for the mouth.
Hang this vision of loveliness on your tree!
