Introducing our Christmas Guardian Angel – a modest clothespeg peg angel to hang on the Christmas tree or bed post. Make one with each of your children – a keepsake tree decoration for years to come. DIY christmas tree decoration fun for you and the kids.
Materials you need:
Muslin or any fabric scrap (for the dress)
Twine (for the arms)
White felt (for the wings)
White and black paint
Lace trim (for the neckline)
Begin by cutting your muslin or fabric into a semi circle. Scale so that the pretty toes peek through underneath.
Glue around the clothespeg so it hangs in an a-line shape.
Glue the centre of a length of twine at the back and knot the ends for the hands.
Next glue the white felt wings at the back of the peg body.
Glue a piece of your lace trim around the neck. And fix the hands to the front with a dot of glue per hand.
Finally paint on some hair with white acrylic paint, and dot the eyes with a very thin brush dipped in black paint
(tip: avoid using black markers as they bleed on the wood)
AND glue on another piece of twine to the back of your finished angel for hanging on your tree, bed or bedroom door.
I hope my sweet peg doll angel brings peace and good will to your home for the holidays.
