Project Instructions

Paint the wood pieces as shown in the photo.

Let dry, then re-paint the front of the large oval with Splendid Gold Metallic, the white pieces with Crystal Craft Twinkles® and the stars with Gold Craft Twinkles® paint.

Paint the hair French Vanilla on the large circle (head).

Using the end of a paint brush handle make two Coral Blush dots for cheeks and two Black dots for eyes. Let dry.

Use a toothpick to make small white dots on the eyes and cheeks. Draw the mouth with a marker.

Refer to photograph, then glue the wood pieces together. Glue the hearts (wings) and the small ovals (feet) onto the back of one large teardrop.

Glue the second large teardrop over the top. The wings and feet will be sandwiched between the two teardrops.

Glue the head at the top of the teardrop body, then glue the gold oval behind the head at the top for the halo.

Glue the smaller teardrops (arms) to the front then glue one small circle behind the end of each arm for hands.

Curve the wire, then glue two stars together on either side of the wire, sandwiching the wire between. Glue the ends of the wire to the back of the angel wings.

Glue the remaining two stars to the front of the wings.

Tips

Use the emery board to sand the wood pieces. Paint the edges of the wood pieces first then place on wax paper. Paint both sides of each piece before assembling.
