Introduction: Tropical Angel Christmas Ornament
As we head into the monsoon season, Christmas in Singapore is lush and tropical. So my angels are decked out in colourful florals and hung on the bougainvillea shrub.
Step 1: Angel's Face
Paint the styrofoam head with flesh-tone acrylic (I've used Titanium buff straight from the tube)
Step 2: Angel's Hair
Glue on the dolls' hair and draw in the eyes and lip with a felt-tip pen
Step 3: Skirt & Wing Template
Cut out the underskirt and 2 wings using this template
Step 4: Overskirt
Cut out the overskirt using the template (without the tab) and glue the skirts together
Step 5: Angel Body
Wrap the skirt around the styrofoam body and glue down the tab to secure
Step 6: Angel Wing
Glue on the wings and punch two holes with an awl
Step 7: Wing Feathers
Coat the feather stem with some glue and push into the hole created
Step 8: Angel Back
hide any gaps at the back with a string of pearls or a ribbon
Step 9: Embellishments
I've add a pearl necklace to the neck, some ribbon trim to the skirt base and fussy-cut flowers to the overskirt.
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
