"Want an idea for using that mesh ribbon you have leftover from Christmas decorating and don't know what to do with? Something that doesn't involve a poufy wreath or garland? Why not make a mesh ribbon angel! So pretty, easy to make and very inexpensive."

Estimated Cost: Under $10

Time to complete: Under an hour

Main Material: Fabric

Beginner

Materials List
  • Mesh Ribbon - 5 1/2" wide
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Fabric glue - clear drying
  • Ball ornament
  • Ribbon
  • Jute Twine or Chenille stem
  • Embellishments
Instructions
  1. Cut out five trapezoid-like shapes 3 inches x 12 inches long making sure you include the side borders of the mesh ribbon.
  2. Fold over the edges to form cone shapes and seal with clear drying fabric glue making sure one of the narrow openings will fit the shank end of a ball ornament. It's easier to glue the cones shapes together starting at the bottom of the cone with a triangular shape forming a point and gluing up.
  3. Glue the ball ornament into the narrow open end for the head. This is the main body.
  4. Attach mesh cones to the left and right of main body, matching ends and points.
  5. Insert fourth cone, placing inside of the middle body cone midway and glue at the back edge.
  6. Insert the fifth and final cone into the fourth cone midway and glue to back, aligning the seams.
  7. Shape a ribbon into a bow and glue behind the base of the ball for the wings.
  8. Glue a small circle of twine or chenille stem to top of ball for the halo.
  9. Additional embellishments can be added around the neck area.
  10. Glue twine loop on back for hanging.
Notes

The finished angel is approximately 16 inches long. Adjust the size of the cones to make smaller or larger angels.
