Christmas is just round the corner - I can't believe it. It seems like only yesterday when I did my coat hanger Christmas tree. I've decided to add a 3D Christmas Angel to my Christmas decoration collection, and it's made out of 2 coat hangers (same size), wire, an old T-shirt (thanks to hubby) and old beads (thanks to hosy!). I wanted an angel with wings that would move - I think I was a bit too ambitious! OK, the how to is below!!
|The tools! I didn't use the ribbon in the end.|
The ball on the left is basically old
T-shirt strips cut against the grain.
|Bend hanger into shape|
|Stretch the t-shirt strips so that they|
look like the one at the bottom of this pic!
For tute on how to join those strips together,
you can look at my Chinese New Year Decor tute!
|Wrap the hanger with the strips.|
Hope over to the
Chinese New Year Decor post for the tute!
|Crochet the arms - remember not to do any knots|
but to tuck the remaining bits of strips.
We don't want a "lumpy" angel ;-)
|Now for the pretty garment !|
|Tadaah - this was the next day...|
|Crocheted strips for the wings. |
Inserted the wire into the strips.
These would be attached to the
2nd coat hanger.
|Bend your other coat hanger to this shape.|
Remove plastic coating. Paint white.
|I stuck beads onto and old sheer fabric.|
Alternatively, you could crochet everything!
|If you're wondering what the|
back looks like.....
