  • 4 feathers (2 for each angel)

Combine Skirt Layers

Cut an overskirt without the tab from the decorative paper and glue the skirts together. Wrap the skirt around the foam body and glue down the tab to secure.

Add Wings

Glue on the wings and punch two holes with an awl. Coat feather stem with glue and push into the hole.

Finishing Touches

This step is optional, but for this project a pearl necklace was added along with some ribbon trim to the skirt base and fussy-cut flowers to the overskirt. Cover up any gaps in the back by gluing on a strip of ribbon.
