Christmas Ornaments: Glittery Angel

Glittery Angel

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Spin glitter and string to make this little angel that sits beautifully atop any Christmas tree.


  • A one-liter plastic soda bottle
  • String
  • Craft glue
  • Glitter
  • Small ball ornament
  • Piece of gold tinsel


  1. Cut the bottom off a one-liter plastic soda bottle. Dip pieces of string into a white-glue-and-water solution (it should be the consistency of thick cream) and coil them around the entire bottle, starting at the bottom. Use more string to cover the entire bottle in this manner.
  2. On a waxed paper lined cookie sheet, shape a long piece of glue soaked string into an outline of angel wings. Fill in the wings with dipped string coiled into lacy patterns. Before the glue dries, liberally sprinkle glitter on the body and wings.
  3. When the wings are dry, glue them to the body. For the head, glue a gold Christmas ball, hook down, on top of the bottle. Crown the angel with a gold tinsel halo.
