Sparkling Angel Wing Ornaments from Coffee Filters

Angel Wing Ornaments Made From Coffee Filters

Angel wings are so beautiful. All right, fine, no one has actually SEEN angel wings (I don't think). But when I see an artist's rendition of angel wings they are always beautiful and white and fluffy, even glittery.  So, I wanted my ornament angel wings to be pretty and white and fluffy also, but with  stuff we all have available - coffee filters, ribbon, and some glitter. 

Don't most homes have glitter?  :)

Here they are:

How to make the Angel Wings Ornament

You need 5 coffee filters.

5 coffee filters for angel wing ornament

Fold over the whole packet.

Pattern for angel wing: You can print this out by saving to your pictures and printing from there. Scale down if need be.

Use the pattern to cut out the wings, placing the inside of the wings on the fold of the coffee filters.

Now you have this:

Open them up and glue together at the center.

Once you have them glued together, open them up and lightly spray with glue spray. Then sparkle them as much as you'd like.

Add a gold bow - or any color. Silver would be nice also.

At this point you can put in a ribbon hanger (I used a tiny string of pearl beads).

I can see many of these on a Christmas tree, can you? 

They were so EASY, too ...

Pin for later?  Thanks so much!!

  1. Very Cute and what a great idea!

  2. I think I may take this idea but instead of the bigger silver ribbon, for each angel, glue a photo of my mom, dad, and mother and father in law who have all passed on.

  3. Love idea of these angel wings, hope I have time to make at least a couple. I saw a post about when a bell rings an angel gets its wings in a little frame. These would be so gorgeous for that. Wish I could remember which blogger had that on her blog, as it's a keeper. Think Ivy and Elephants? I'll have to go buy some of those coffee filters, our coffee maker uses different filters. Or could make some little ones with cupcake papers. Maybe will try that before I go buy the bigger filters. Will be good trial. So glad I found this, as soon as I saw angel wings and on the tree.
    Happy weekend and enjoy this wonderful season. Saving this to print out later.
