This fairy ornament decoration could also be an angel. It’s easy and made with a non-breakable ornament, so very good for elderly activities too. Hang it on the wall or door, or as part of a decorative wreath. If you mount it on a skewer or dowel, you can even stand it up in a centerpiece. Lots of possibilities.
Materials To Use
First decide on your colors. I used gold.
4 tall curly reeds (I used gold sparkly ones) for wings
Fine-line Sharpie marker to draw face
Gold thread or cord
Gold curly ribbon
Glue, like a glue gun or strong craft glue
First I took 4 curly reeds, the gold glittery type, and crisscrossed them, forming the wings. I tied them together with strong thread, wrapping the thread around the 4 reeds in a Figure-8 type weave. When tied, I put a glob of glue to hold it all in place, and let it dry.
Next I strung a thread through the hanger of the bulb, which was turned so that the hanger was in the back of the “head.” Then it was tied onto the center area of the 4 reeds. After tying on the head, I then drew on a simple face. I did not draw it on first. I wanted to see just how the head would hang first, and so then I could get an idea of just where to draw on the face.
The rest was very easy. Just wrap a lot of glitzy gold ribbon around the neck area and let it hang down. Also put a bit on top of the head. You can glue it in place here and there if you need to.
A strong thread or cord can be tied in the back of the project to hang it up. I used a thin gold cord (although you can’t see it in the photo).
