We love angel crafts, and have created everything from a tissue paper angel ornament, to a choir of angels decoration made with funnels!

Recently I made a table runner for a family member, complete with a tassel on each end. 

The tassels gave me the inspiration for this craft!

In the introduction, I said there were only two materials, narrow ribbon, silver or gold, and a tassel.

We used a cream colored tassel but colorful tassels would be fun too. Search for tassels in craft or hardware stores, or among the curtain pulls in the drapery section of a department store or fabric store. 

We used a glue gun to attach the ribbon wings to the tassel. There are lots of low temperature options available if the kids are helping, but even these should be used with supervision.

1. Wings

Wrap narrow ribbon several times around your fingers or a flat tool like this wooden stirring paddle. Our kitchen paddle measures 2.5 in.(6.5 cm). You can use any kitchen tool you have on hand.

The size of your tassel will help determine how large you want the wings. Our tassels are just under 3.5 in. (9 cm) in length.

Slide the ribbon loops off your hand and onto another length of ribbon. Tie a knot in this ribbon in the middle of the loops to form the angel's 'wings'.

Trim the ends of the ribbon you tied in a knot. If the ribbon is long enough, form two additional loops with the ends and tuck them into the knot.

Glue the wings to the tassel. Fluff the wings to get the wing span you want.

2. Halo

Make a circle with a small piece of ribbon for the 'halo'. Glue the circle to the back of the tassel only, allowing the front part of the circle to extend over the angel's head.

Optional: spread glue on the 'gown' with a glue stick. Sprinkle glitter or gems on the glue.


These adorable angels will look beautiful on your Christmas tree.

And they're perfect to make as gifts for family and friends.
