The Pin Junkie: Angel Ornament

DIY Paper Angel Ornament

Can you believe this paper angel Christmas ornament is made out of coffee filters?  You can make this pretty angel ornament in just a few minutes and really inexpensively!  This DIY ornament makes a nice topper or embellishment for a gift as well.

I'm participating in a couple of ornament exchanges this year.  One of them is organized by The Pin Tester.  All of the ornaments are being sent to Jodee at the Cheeseblarg blog.  This year Jodee is decorating her very first Christmas tree and everyone participating in the ornament exchange is donating ornaments to her.  I love making ornaments and certainly wanted to join in the spirit of giving at Christmas.   So I headed over to Pinterest and it didn't take very long to find some fun DIY ornament ideas.  This idea was pinned from Better Homes and Gardens.

Materials needed:
paper coffee filters (2 per angel)
1 inch foam ball
gold ribbon
glue (I used a glue gun)


Fold the first coffee filter in half and center 
the foam ball inside the filter.


Wrap a small piece of ribbon around 
the neck (not too tight) and secure with glue.


I cut about an inch off the second coffee filter to make it smaller.  
Otherwise, the wings looked too big for the body.
 


 Fold the second coffee filter in half 
and then accordion fold in the center.


Secure with another piece of ribbon and glue.


Glue the wings to the back of the angel's body.  
Glue a loop of ribbon on the angel's head for a halo 
and another loop of ribbon on the back for hanging.
 

Here's what it looks like finished.

  3. This is a very versatile and quick craft!

    I can do this when I babysit some kids this weekend.
    If I don't make the wings it can be a little birdy kids can play with!

    Thanks for this,

  4. This is really sweet! I love how simple it is, and how easy it was. I only have the "unbleached" filters, but hey, angels are diverse, too.

  16. It's lovely, I wonder if I could try with cooking doilies as coffee filters in France don't look like yours at all!
