Quick & Easy Angel Ornaments from Tassels

How to Create Easy Angel Ornaments from Tassels

From December 1st to December 23rd I’m sharing three Christmas projects per week, for Twelve Days of Christmas Projects.

Welcome to Day Two!

You can find links to the other projects at the end of this post.

Creating repurposed angels is always a fun part of Christmas for me, and they can be made out of so many things like this book angel that I made a few years ago.

thrifted silk tassels to be repurposed into DIY angel ornaments

Like these thrifted silk tassels that I found in a small bag of eight for five dollars. Even thought I saw their future as angels right away, the price was a little steep for this thrifty gal. So I didn’t buy them the first time I saw them.

I told myself that if they were still there the next weekend then I was meant to buy them.

So the next weekend I went back to the same thrift store and… guess what?

They were still there. Hallelujah!

I’m only using three for this project, so I’ll keep the other five for a someday future project.

Including the 4 inch hanger, the tassels are about 9 Inches long.

Creating wings for the tassel angel ornaments

folding Christmas sheet music to make angel wings

The first thing my angels need was wings. Christmas sheet music is always a good idea for this, like with these salt & pepper angels.

For these wings I’m folding the sheet music, accordion-style.

I tied them in the middle with jute twine.

Before I add the wings to the angels they need to be dressed up a bit.

Dressing up the tassel angel ornaments

This is a great way to use up some bits and pieces of whatever ribbons and lace that you have.

I just glued them on with a couple dabs of hot glue.

When it comes to making angels a halo is a must.

So a little pink beading is all that was needed.
