Angels We Have Heard On High

This is a super fun, super fast, and super easy ornament craft that you can do yourself or with some youngsters.  Youngsters are not necessary.

Alert:  I'm in no way taking credit for this one.  Chewy made this at MOPS yesterday and we love it so much, that I'm going to share.  (Hey MOPS moms!)  Our group's wonderful craft and childcare leader organized this.  And she got this idea from another mom who may have gotten it from a Sunday school class.  Something like that.  So a big thank you to whoever deserves the credit!

Isn't it just cute!?  The one Chewy made is currently hanging on our Christmas tree.  We'd love to make more of these (some year) to attach to wrapped gifts.  You could do a whole tree in these adorable little angels.  And they're super easy to make, plus not very expensive to make a whole lot of them!  Take a look at the one below if you want to make your own:

Materials:
Paper clamps (find at one of those office stores)
Plastic beads
Silver or Gold circle beads for halo
String, twine, or other hanging material that the beads will fit through

How to Make:
1) Attach two wing beads on each side (in whatever color you want) by pulling up ends of clamps and slipping beads on.  Little ones will need help with this part.
2) Cut string long enough to bead and hang (5 inches or your choice).  Double your string up and slip through where head will go.  Slip on colored bead for head, slip on halo bead, and knot.
3) Put a knot at the top of the string and enjoy!

Don't you just love it!?  What super cute and super easy ornaments have you made or would like to make?  Have you saved any ornaments that you made as a kid?  Scooter has one Biker Boy made in second grade hanging on his little tree in his room!  Now that is just adorable!  Enjoy!  And remember....don't drive yourself nuts at this time of the year trying to get everything done.  Just enjoy!  I know....easier said than done.
