Transcript:How to Make a Clothes Pin Angel

Hi, I am Chris Davis for About.com. Christmas is on the way. Let’s walk through how to makea clothes pin angel ornament.

To Make a Clothes Pin Angel Ornament, You'll Need:

  • Clothes pins
  • White felt
  • White or silver ribbon
  • Cotton balls or yarn
  • Pipe Cleaner
  • White, silver or gold synthetic flower
  • Scissors
  • Craft Glue
  • Markers
  • Silver or gold paint

Paint the Clothes Pin

You will want to begin by painting the tips of the clothes pins with the silver or gold paint. Set aside and let dry. These will be the angels feet. While the paint is drying cut a square piece of felt about 2 1/2" by 2 1/2". This will become the angels dress. Repeat cutting the felt until you have the desired number of angels you want to make. Once the paint has dried draw a face on the top of the clothespin. Apply craft glue to the clothes pin where the felt will go.

Decorate with Fabric to Make the Angel

Wrap the felt around the clothespin allowing the top corners to overlap. Cut a piece of ribbon about 3 inches long. Put a dab of glue along the ribbon and then gently press into place forming the angels arms.Once the arms have dried Squirt a little glue on the back and top of clothes pin and either place a pulled apart cotton ball or short pieces of yarn to create the angels hair. let this dry.Next cut a 3 inch long piece of pipe cleaner and form a ring. This will become the halo. Glue the halo to the top of the head. Finally pull the petals of you synthetic flower. Using two petals, glue them on the back of the clothes pin to form the wings. Now you can display your angel or add a hanger to hang it from the Christmas tree.
