For my Project today I made Angel ornaments in memory of my Angel Nephew for his Mommy and Big Brothers. 

 I found some angel beads at Michael's that were perfect for a regular sized Christmas Ball.

I pulled the "feathers" off this boa that I got at Hobby Lobby.
You might need to use a pencil or pokey tool to push the feathers through the top of the ball.
 I used some elastic beading thread and I thread it through the Angel and then up through the two holes in the top of the Christmas Bulbs hanger top then I thread it back through and tied it in a knot.  There is a video at the bottom showing how I did this if you're interested. 
I put the Angel through into the bulb and put the topper on.
Sorry you can see me and the camera in the glass but I tried to get a decent picture of the finished project.  


Up next is Lucy's Blog
