Angel Sweet Angel Wings
I just finished my newest creation.......Angel wings made out of organdy ribbon strips....
I love how she looks hanging on my Christmas tree!
So fluffy and romantic...perfect for the shabby chic style!
A wonderful gift idea for any reason! Gorgeous as a display for your smaller dress forms.
Hang on a chair, ladder, bed post, door, or hang on a peg on a shelf,
and so many other uses you might come up with....
And, the perfect dreamy Christmas decoration for your tree too!
You will love them, I promise!
This little girl was 70 yards of organdy ribbon cut into strips and glued on the wing base.
I found these fluffy feather pom pom like thingys and they were just the perfect touch for sweetness.
I edged them in some lovely braided gimp and......A little bling ....... and Perfect!!!!
I love how the light reflects behind them on the tree! I love them!
Pretty sparkely bling! I love sparkely!
I love how the lights reflect on the organdy!
Perfect for Christmas or any time of the year!
I was amazed at how the pictures came out....was so hard just picking a few!
So soft and fluffy!
I love the all white....but I'm seeing them in pink next! (winky!) :)
White as snow and reminds me of heaven!
The whole set of wings is edged in this pretty gimp trim.
Don't you just love it when you go through your stash of forever stuff....
and have a wala moment and find something that just says,
"This is what I was meant to be for all along!" And....it is just
the perfect piece for this one special creation!
The wing base is cardboard....I painted the cardboard all white
before I started glueing the strips of organdy....
this shows the backside as it is now, but....
.I am covering it with a lovely white cotton linen to give it a polish finish.
You can see the braided gimp trim here also all along the wings edges.
They really are stunning! Even if I do say so myself hehe!
The wing base (the cardboard) measures 10"W x 8"L. The finished wings measure approximately 13"W x 12 1/2"L. From start to finish, it was about 5 hours....but gosh I am loving making these!
And I am so not a person that enjoys something that takes so long to make either lol!
