Cone Angels

Another darling vintage ornament made with a cone.  She is 2 1/2 inches tall and absolutely adorable. To replicate this little cutie, take a 1 inch bead and paint with a flesh tone.  Paint red circle for mouth, then paint on eyelashes and eyebrows.  Make a tinsel crown.  Use a piece of bump chenelle to create her arms.  Glue a candle or prayer book in her hands.  Make the cone for the body, insert the point into the hole in the bead and glue.  Glue wings on to the back, and a string into the top hole on her head.

You could always make a larger version with a bigger cone for a tree topper and sculpt the head with paperclay over a styrofoam ball.  I can think of dozens of ways to dress them up so cute.  Scrapbook papers or lovely tissue and crepe paper dresses.  Or make them vintage looking with vintage laces and ribbons and buttons.
