Doily Angels

An Angel craft was on our list last year, but we didn't get to it until this year.  Sycamore Stirrings has a wonderful little tutorial to make doily angels.  This project is probably more suitable for older children, but the finished project will be enjoyed by all ages.

We modified the original tutorial by using silver doilies and "real" hair which is actually craft pompoms cut up.  It has a nice texture. I found all the components for the project at the dollar shop, even the painted wooden beads (2 per package).
While I was sorting through our ornament bins, I found this tin can angel my sister made in the early 90s.  These are kind of fun, I haven't seen this sort of craft for years.  Essentially  it is a bent soda can, bent and decorated. 
Isn't it fun going through your old ornaments?

Have a wonderful weekend and check out the projects at
