Being Up There With the Angels
Crafting Homemade Angel Accessories
By Scarlett Lovitt
If you are looking for accessories that are easy to make, elegant, and not quite the usual these days, you could try making homemade angels. Angels used to be a very common motif in most homes during Victorian times. But even today, they can add a beautiful touch to any room. Many people associate angels with Christmas time, but in fact you can decorate your home with them at any time of the year.
Here are some easy angel accessories that you can make. They will add a certain elegance to your home, and they also make original and beautiful gifts to your friends.
If you would like to put a potpourri in your living room to add its lovely fragrance, then you could make this angel potpourri. It is really simple, requiring only the following materials:
Pine cone, potpourri (with flowers of just one color), craft glue, glitter, a 1-inch bead, silk flower leaves (for the wings), and a black permanent marker.
Once this is made, you have a lovely ornament for your living room that also has the gorgeous fragrance of a potpourri.
Recycled Light Bulb Angel
And what about an angel that is made from a recycled light bulb?
This is also fairly easy.
These angel accessories will look good in any living room, matching other beautiful accessories, such as a floral rug (or any other pretty rug that is of an appropriate color), a wooden cuckoo clock, or a decoupage vase. They are easy to make and your family and friends are sure to love them. •
