Christmas ornament

One of our favorite holiday traditions is to make a Christmas ornament for our friends and family.

For this year’s ornament, I decided that I would make an Angel of Gratitude…

so I drew and colored her, and then scanned and printed a flutter of

I glued them to wood,varnished them and then cut them out.


I sanded and painted the edges, glued the loops on, cut out the backs and glued them together….


and Voila! This year’s ornament!

  2. Ah, bless your heart, Carolee!
    Thank you so much :o)
    And, you are right about the delicious cup of tea- it was a cup of gingerbread tea (Celestial Seasonings- yummy!)
    Making angels really does make for a lovely Christmas memory, doesn’t it?
    Have a lovely Christmas!


  3. I really like your angel…. we have yet to decide what this year’s ornament will be… since we are snowed in and have no school, maybe it will be a good day for granddaughter Jessica and I to work on our ornaments and notes.

  8. How sweet! Can you share a larger picture? I’d like to see the angel drawing up closer.

    “A flutter of angels” – is that like a gaggle of geese or a pride of lions? I love it! You’re so clever Noreen.


  9. Hi Eileen
    I know that there is a proper word for a multiplicity of angels -like the exultation of larks and gaggle of geese, pride of lions, etc….. but I can’t remember the name, so I made up ‘flutter of angels’…. *G*

    I wonder if anyone else remembers it?
    Merry Christmas and Joyous Everything that everyone celebrates!
