Jingle Bell Angel

Jingle Bell Angel


1 25 mm white or gold-colored jingle bell
1 1 1/2-inch wooden ball
9-inch piece of 2-inch wide wire ribbon
6-inch piece of 2-inch wide gathered lace
Woolen hair or mini curls
Tinsel stem
1/4-inch ribbon for bow
Thin gold wire or light weight florist wire
Hot glue gun
Flesh paint
Black paint or paint pen
Red paint or paint pen
Pair of needle nosed pliers
  1. Paint wooden ball flesh color and allow to dry.
  2. Using needle nosed pliers, bend or remove hanger loop from top of jingle bell . (This allows wooden ball to sit down on top of bell)
  3. After paint is dry on wooden ball, arrange hair and glue into place. Draw or paint eyes and mouth. Use blush to make light rosey cheeks. (Use the tip of your finger to rub blush on wooden ball)
  4. Glue wooden ball to top of jingle bell.
  5. Allow glue to set a few minutes before attaching skirt.
  6. Using needle and thread, stitch a running stitch along the upper edge of lace. Gather to fit between the wooden ball and the jingle bell. Secure thread. (You can use a small dot of hot glue to close the "seam" in back.)
  7. Make wings with the wire ribbon. Fold ribbon in half from each end with the ends meeting in the center and slightly overlapping. Secure with a piece of thin wire (light weight florist wire or thin gold wire)
  8. Attach wings to back of angel using hot glue. (You can attach a hanger between the angel and wings, if desired. Hanger can be made from fishing line, ribbon, gold wire or thin braid.)
  9. Cut tinsel stem and form a 1 & 1/2-inch to 2-inch circle for the halo.
  10. Glue the halo along the back half and attach to the back of the head - the halo will stand up slightly above the head when finished. 
  11. Form a bow from the ribbon and glue it in front at the neckline.
  12. Other embellishments may be added if desired.

  13. Remember - "Every time a bell rings an angel wins its wings."

    I make a wide variety of crafts in various media - crochet, counted cross-stitch, quilted, stitched, small wooden items. My husband makes various wooden crafts, such as rolled top bread boxes, bird feeders, birdhouses, quilt racks, shelves, and etc.. Arthritis ended my 25 year nursing career. I have been fighting to keep as much use of my hands as possible since losing my career and income. My craft business is the result of this - beginning about 4 years ago. I began to look around at the increasing stacks of completed projects and decided that I needed to find a way to move these items in order to make room for still more. Last year I did 3 or 4 local one-day craft shows which proved to have moderate success. Beginning this year, I have devoted more time to craft shows and crafting as a full-time business. It is my goal to have this business operating on its own within the next two years. Then my husband can either retire or only work part-time. There are days when my crafting efforts are limited, but each day that I am able to use my hands is a blessing from Above.
