Wine-Cork Angels – Weekend Project

09.14.2012 · Posted in Craft Projects

Bazaars for the holidays are just around the corner.  I’m in the groove creating new pieces that hopefully will be irresistible to ornament collectors.  This sweet little angel is four inches tall, weighs less than an ounce and is made of wired metallic ribbon gathered over a wine cork.  Her head is a one inch Styrofoam ball covered with paper-mache and painted a pale pink.  The wings are just a bow made of the same metallic ribbon.  Ordinary kitchen twine wrapped around the head creates her hair and the halo is a string of gold pearls.  An ivory satin ribbon with a violet satin rose finishes her adornments.

Hang this sweet angel on your Christmas tree or the office tree.  Give her to a friend or loved one, or dress up a gift box with her for someone special.  She will be saved and cherished for years to come.

Check out last year’s wine-cork creations. 

Next up – snowmen with paper-clay over Styrofoam armatures.

  1. The Angels are precious. Love her bangs!
    Many hugs, conny

  2. These are seriously adorable. Now I have dozens of ideas flying through my head about how I might dress these lovelies with what I have on hand. I’ll be saving wine corks from now until Three Kings.

  3. J’aime, take a look at the wine-cork craft tab at the top of my home page. There’s more photos there of wine cork people.
