Use dollar store items to quickly create simple angel decor for your home. Easy to follow tutorial that's a great craft project for beginners.
Angel decor was my “thing”. For lots of different reasons, last year I found myself making lots of angels for my Christmas decor. I’ve often decorated my home with angels (I used to adore Raphael’s chubby cherub paintings!) but fell away from it for some time. Like so many trends, what’s old is new again, and I’m drawn to angel decor again. Last week I showed you how to make rustic angel ornaments using recycled items. This week I’d like to show you how to turn a cone and an extra large Dollar Tree ornament into a pretty piece of decor that looks like an angel.

This post first appeared at Dollar Store Crafts, where I am a contributor.
Step one: Remove the cap from the end of the ornament, and place a dowel rod in the ornament. Hot glue the dowel in place in the ornament. Slip the dowel rod into the cone. Use more hot glue to stabilize the “head” if needed.
Step two: Hot glue the fabric to the cone, and trim off the excess. Glue trim around the neck of the angel and around the base of the dress if desired.
Step three: Hot glue wings to the back of the angel.
I’m decorating with gold tones this year, but you could use any fabric to match your decor. I used some beautiful Robert Kaufman fabric for this project. This would be a great project for stash busting! You can use up the bits of fabric and trim you have been hoarding unable to part with. Have fun crafting and creating angels for the holidays!
