  1. Thanks so much . . . I’ll prepare these cute angels, next December, to raise funds for a charity organization.

    They are lovely! Thanks again!

  2. Hi Wendy, Thanks for sharing these Angels are beautiful. I have only one big problem, stay on a farm far from any craft shops, I need the dimensions to hand cut the bows etc. Could you perhaps help. Thanks

    • Mercia- the small loops are about 4″ long and a shy 1 5/8″ at the widest point. The tails are about 2 15/16″ long and 1 3/4″ at the widest point with a depth of 3/8″ for the V cut out. Hope this helps.
      Of course you could save so much time and place an online order to get the supplies you need anytime and it will ship right to you. I am happy to assist you if you need me 🙂

  3. I’m curious how these hang? Do they lean forward because of the string in the back? Would it be better to loop the string around the halo as long as good adhesive was used?

    • Kim- I have not had any issues with these not hanging correctly. I believe with the string attached to the head helps this.

  4. I just finished making three angels,and I love them. I plan to place them on small gifts. Thanks for this beautiful project!
