Shabby Angel Ornaments

Hello everyone!  I am in the holiday spirit and love ornaments, so can't wait to show you my latest project.  I altered the most adorable mini wooden bowling pins and turned them into angel ornaments with the help of ScraPerfect.  I sell a kit to make this ornament in my store,  The Vintage Rose Emporium.  Here is a photo of some of the things I started out with:

The first thing I did was gesso and paint the mini pin light pink.  I lightly brushed on some pink stickles and then used the Best Glue Ever to glue some trim around the pin to make the angel's dress.
I also used it to adhere pom pom trim around the collar.  Using the Best Glue Ever, I made some glue dots and used them to attach some feathers to the back of the pin for wings. I of attached a piece of white ribbon with a glue dot to hang the angel on the tree.  I love that you couldn't see the glue through the ribbon!

When it came to adding finishing touches, I used my favorite pick up tool Embellie Gellie. It is the best at releasing your embellishments, you'll never be a butterfingers again with this amazing stuff!

I wanted to give my angel a face, but a painter I am not.  I didn't think I would have enough control with a small paint brush to do a good job.  So I put the No Clog Writing Cap on my paint bottle...perfect solution!

Here is the end result, I love the way this sweet angel turned out.

 I had so much fun making her, that I made two.  I hope you like them and feel inspired to use your
ScraPerfect goodies and make some angels too!  Thanks for stopping by, please leave a comment.
