It’s day 18 and my turn to share a handmade Christmas ornament.

I adore these sweet Victorian Snow Angels and thought they’d be so pretty hanging in the Christmas tree or from a door handle or hook.

They are so simple to make too!!

Supplies:

Printable page – download here,

Light card and backing paper (I used vintage book paper, but you could use scrapbooking paper),

Mod Podge/white glue and a brush,

Clear craft glue,

Sharp scissors or craft knife,

A collection of ribbons, laces or ripped fabric,

Needle and crochet cotton to make hanger,

Optional – I also used a sprinkle of German Glass Glitter.

Clcik to get the free printabel download from Shabby Art Boutique, plus the full step-by-step instructiosn for making the Victorian Ribbon Angels.

Instructions:

1. Gather your supplies. I used a variety of ribbons, laces and ripped fabrics that I had in my scraps bag, keeping to a neutral colour scheme.

2. Print the download page. I used a sheet of matt photo paper because I like the quality of the print, however, you can just used normal white paper.

Adhere the graphic onto a piece of light card using white glue… as you can see, I used my Liquitex, but Mod Podge or Elmer’s glue are fine alternatives. Press down firmly to remove any lumps or air bubbles. When it is dry, add a piece of music manuscript, book paper or scrapbooking paper to the back side, using the same process.

3. When completely dry, cut out your angel shape using either a craft knife or sharp pointy scissors. Personally, I always like to use a scalpel knife for these kinds of projects. Shown above – front and back views of cut-out.

4. Cut your ribbons and laces etc to desired length – note there is no right or wrong way here. I cut mine to manageable lengths and then trimmed ends when I was finished. Apply a bead of clear craft glue along the waist on the rear view of the angel. Start adding lengths of ribbon and reapply glue as needed. Continue until you have reached the desired fullness.

5. Add a pretty ribbon bow to the back view, to neaten up the top of edge of your ribbon.

6. Piece a hole in the top of each wing using an embroidery needle threaded with crochet cotton. Knot the cotton at the back to form a short hanger.

7. I wanted the extra pizazz of glittery snow, so I applied a light coat of white glue to the wings and in a few spots on the clothing and sprinkled with German Glass Glitter. I like how the glitter picks up the light and makes my snow angels look icy.
