I absolutely love any decorations that are related to angels and feathers.  I decided to create some angel wings out of mdf board so I could decorate our tree and remember all those people that are no longer with us.

I drew a template on paper and traced it on the mdf board and my hubby then helped me cut them out using a jigsaw.

I sanded the wings first using some fine sandpaper and my dremel for a nice and smooth finish and to get some finer detail in the wings.  I then drilled a hole for the ribbon.

I used some  home-made chalk paint to paint them lovely and white.

I then decided to use some iridescent glitter (of course!!) I had to sprinkle the wings and then sealed with mod podge. I put some lacquer over to make the glitter even shinier.

I then put a lovely white ribbon on so the wings could be put on a Christmas tree and glued a little crystal on.  I absolutely love how they turned out.  I loved these decorations so much I ended up making a matching love heart and star/snowflake ornament too!

On the…. Day of Christmas Evija made….. ANGEL WINGS!!!
