Make your own Christmas ornaments! This kit comes with supplies to make two angel ornaments. Each angel is made using a wooden ball with gold crown, white cotton fabric dress, sheer gold ribbon wings, and a wire ornament hanger. Everything you need is included in the kit to assemble. Instructions are provided to enable people who are blind or visually impaired to assemble by touch.
This is a simple no sew project that you will enjoy putting together as much as you will enjoy on your tree!
See text directions for assembly below, or you can click the following link to see / hear a narrated presentation of the assembly instructions: Mitsy Kit Christmas Angel Ornament Instructions.
Step 1: String the head of the angel (the wooden ball with tactile bumps forming a crown on top) on the white fleece ribbon by first lacing fleece ribbon through eye of plastic needle and then pushing needle up through the hole furthest from the tactile bumps forming a crown, until pull through about two inches of the fleece ribbon above the head.
Step 2: The Angel’s robe is made from cotton fabric folded in a diamond shape with folded points facing down. Secure the Angel’s robe to the fleece ribbon by pulling open the two front flaps of the robe upward and putting a glue dot inside on the center back of the robe, then line up the angel’s head so that it is at the top center of the robe and press the fleece ribbon below it to the glue dot on the center back of the robe. Finger press the fleece ribbon onto the glue dot to securely adhere. Then, pull down the front flaps so they overlap each other in front of the fleece strip. Put another glue dot between the two front flaps where they overlap and press to adhere the two flaps together. (If you have issues with the glue dots another option is to use some elmers glue – you will just need to leave time for this to dry before handling too much).
Step 3: Attach the Angel wings to the back of the robe by attaching the two velcro pieces, one on the front of the wings and the other on the back of the robe.
Step 4: To attach your ornament hanger, fold the top of the white fleece ribbon down about 1/2 an inch, and make a small slit diagonally down the center of the folded ribbon, then unfold and put one end of the wire ornament hook through the slit in the fleece.
