Wire Ribbon and Pearl Angel

By:

If you're looking for fun wire craft ideas, look no further than this quick and easy tutorial. Make a Wire Ribbon and Pearl Angel from Ann Butler that can be worn or displayed all year long. With only a few supplies, you can create this fun and dainty piece.


 

Materials:

  • 1 ½” – 2” wired ribbon – one 10” and two 4” lengths
  • 12 mm pearl bead
  • 18 gauge Wire
  • Aleene’s Fast Grab Tacky Glue
  • Scissors, Wire Cutter, ½” dowel

Instructions:

  1. Pleat ribbon ¼” – ½” for the entire length (10” section is the body, 4” sections are the wings).
     
  2. Wrap wire around dowel to create halo, cut leaving 2” stem; put the bead onto stem.
     
  3. Find the center of the body, add a drop of glue and place stem of halo in place; let dry.
     
  4. Place wings halfway up on either side of body. Use wire to wrap in place, spread wings and body out.

Notes:

  • This can be done with various widths of ribbon just adjust the bead for head accordingly.
  • Try this with paper lace, lace, fabric and other materials.
  • Use a wooden bead in place of pearl bead for head.
  • If using fabric stiffen it first with Aleene’s Fabric Stiffener
  • Use pipe cleaners for the halo
  • Add a pin back for a pin
