Creating Your Little Angel Figurine
Assemble the body of the Valentine's Day angel first. To do this, glue the
inverted flower pot onto one of the large wooden hearts.
Then glue the wooden ball on top of the inverted flower pot to make
the craft angel's head.
Next, glue the other large wooden heart to the side of the flower pot.
This will become the wings on the back of the angel.
Finally, glue the small heart onto the "front" side of the flower pot as
Next, paint the base, angel, and wings. I use a flesh colored paint
for the angel head.
To put a face on the little angel, use the fine-point felt tip pen.
If you want textured wings, apply the decorative snow paste to the
If you wish, you can add glitter to the wings.
Once the paint and snow paste are dry, apply the curly doll hair.
This is best done by cutting the hair into various lengths, and overlapping
them during application.
When the hair glue is dry, apply the beaded halo.
You can also apply a string of pearls around the base of the angel.
A sequin glued to the center of the small heart finishes off the little Valentine's Day angel.
You can glue felt on the bottom of the heart base to keep the little
angel from scratching any furniture.
