Last craft of Christmas: Paper angels

While I was clearing up my studio so I would have space to wrap presents I stumbled upon these adorable wood beads with a sweet smile. I remembered about the paper angels we made when I was a little girl -maybe 5 or 6 years old. No paper angel on my tree yet so I had to make a couple.

- Paper doilies
- Pipe cleaner
- Wood or paper bead for the head
- Piece of floral wire 
- Pliers
- Scissors
- Glue or tape

Bend the pipe cleaner into a U-shape
 Snip the doily in two
 Use the pliers to form a circle on on end of the floral wire
 Thread the pipe cleaner and the floral wire through the hole of the bead
Bend the other end of the floral wire into a hook
 Roll one half of the doily into a cone and tape or glue it over the frame formed by the floral wire and the pipe cleaner
 Fold the other half of the doily as shown below and glue or tape to the back
 I have paper angels on my tree now
