How To Make Chandelier Crystal Angel Ornaments

There’s something magical about angels, and for me these chandelier crystal angel ornaments are magical too.

With Christmas less than two weeks away, there’s still time to add some angelic inspiration to your Christmas decor.

Repurposing things into angels is so much fun, and there are so many things that can be used… like these baking cone angel ornaments, these salt and pepper angels, and this book angel.

These chandelier crystal angel ornaments will certainly add some heavenly sparkle to your Christmas tree.

And who doesn’t love sparkle?

Chandelier crystals make perfect angels because that top round crystal makes a great, already attached, angel head.

Materials needed for these angel ornaments.

Chandelier crystals (either glass or plastic)
Glue sticks
Glue gun
Scissors
Misc decorative items
Ornament hangers
Non-slip sink mat with wing pattern

cutting out bath no slip mat for angel wings for angel ornaments

When I saw this flexible sink mat at the dollar store I immediately thought it looked like it was made of angel wings.

For the first angel I glued on a white ribbon rose at the neck to cover the wire.

Then I glued a pair of wings on the back.

The wings could easily be blinged up with a little bit of white glue and glitter, but I’m liking the translucent look.

 

gluing halo onto back of head for chandelier crystal angel ornaments

For the halo I decided to use a mini faux pearl beading.

I put a dab of glue on the back of the head, pressed the first bead into the glue, wrapped the beading around the front, pulled it around to the back and into the glue, and cut it off.

You can see the halos here.

The middle angel has a pink ribbon rose, and the angel on the right has a rhinestone bracelet piece.

I removed the wires that came with the crystals and added ornament hangers.

When you dab the glue on the back of the head to add the halo make sure not to glue the little hole shut.

Here’s what the backs look like, not that anyone will be seeing the backs.

These chandelier crystal angel ornaments are so easy to customize, and a great way to use up little bits and bobs in your craft stashes.

I think they’d be pretty attached to packages too.

      Thanks Gail! They were so quick and easy, and they really add some sparkle to my tree.

  1. I couldn’t imagine how you could make angels with chandy crystals, but now I see! I thought you were going to use the Dollar Store mat to work on…haha…not to make angel wings. So clever Tuula! I would never “see” an angel in a chandy crystal till you showed it to me.

      Thanks so much Florence! I love those sink mats… they’re so cool, and I have another idea for them when spring comes.

    Those are so cool! Could even be Sun catchers. You never fail to brighten my day!

    1. Tuula McPhee says:

      Thanks Mary! Yes, the could certainly be sun catchers. They’d look pretty in a window.

  4. Oh Tuula I love these! Great way to repurpose, and I love angels, too:) I’ve also got some loose chandelier crystals hiding around here somewhere lol xo Kathleen|Our Hopeful Home

    1. Tuula McPhee says:

      Thanks Kathleen! These are so quick to make that if you find your crystals you could have a few angels on your tree in no time. I can relate to the somewhere thing. lol.

  5. So cute! I have a whole bag of those crystals. Maybe I will make some next year. For the first time in years, I am behind for Christmas. Pinned!

    1. Tuula McPhee says:

      Thanks AnnMarie! I have quite the collection myself, and it’s fun to use them in different ways. I cut a bunch of Christmas tasks off my to do list this year so I could enjoy the season more. I always feel like I’m behind… especially in blogland. Thanks for pinning!

  6. Oh, these are so sweet! And those circles for the wings? Again I say, brilliant!!! Dona

    1. Tuula McPhee says:

      Thanks so much Dona! And they’re so easy to make. 🙂

  7. These are adorable, Tuula! I paid big bucks at Pier I for angels very similar several years ago. I’ll never look at chandelier crystals the same way again.

    1. Tuula McPhee says:

      Thanks Marie! These are so easy, and cheap too… if you find the chandy crystals at thrift stores like I do.

  8. Adorable! Great ornament for my church bazaar ornament list! Now to find the crystals! I have an angel-loving friend; she will love one!

    1. Tuula McPhee says:

      Thanks Kathy! I think they’d be perfect for a church bazaar. Easy to make lots of them in one sitting.

  9. These are so sweet, Tuula! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm–pinned!

    1. Tuula McPhee says:

      Thanks for the pin Cecilia! These were a lot of fun to make.

  10. These are stunningly beautiful Tuula. I also had a bunch of chandelier crystals and just hung them like that on the tree. Happy New Year.

    1. Tuula McPhee says:

      Thanks very much Mary! Chandelier crystals would certainly look beautiful au natural as well. Happy New Year to you Mary!

  11. I love these angels & have so many crystals. Which dollar store had the mat, please?

    1. Thanks Susan! It was a Dollarama dollar store. If you can’t find a mat like the one I used, maybe you could find something to substitute.

  12. Let us know if you would like to try one of our new styles of chandelier crystal (complimentary of course). We would love to see what amazing craft, you come up with!
