Combine a few natural supplies, including a twig wreath halo, to create an easy-to-make clay pot angel.
By Jane Lake
2-1/2 inch clay pot
2 inch wooden ball
angel wing shape – craft foam or wood
heart shape – craft foam or wood
fine textured craft moss or potpourri
coarse textured craft moss or doll hair
2-1/2 inch twig wreath
small dried rosebuds or flower buds
craft glue and hot glue
fine Sharpie or permanent marker
flesh colored acrylic paint
tiny amount of pink paint, crayon or lipstick
1. Glue fine moss or potpourri all around the rim of the clay pot, using tacky craft glue or hot glue. Randomly add small dried rosebuds or other flower buds on top of the moss. Turn the pot upside down and set aside.
2. Paint the wooden ball in flesh tone and let dry. Hot glue the ball to the top of the overturned pot. Use the Sharpie pen to draw on simple facial features. Carefully add a small dot of pink lipstick, paint or crayon as blush on the cheeks.
3. Glue the angel wings to the back of pot.
4. Tie a small raffia bow and glue it to the front of the angel. Glue the heart shape on top of the bow.
5. Glue coarse craft moss in place as hair. Glue the twig wreath on top of the hair as the angel’s halo.
