Are you looking to create a majestic and awe-inspiring life size angel for the Christmas Season? This has been a project on my bucket list. With a few simple steps and supplies, you can create a one-of-a-kind life size angel that will set your holiday decor. Read on for a step-by-step tutorial for creating your own life size angel.
Gather your Materials
1 Tomatoes Cage 30″
1 Styrofoam Head or Ball
1 Rubber Band
100 Mini White Lights
One Angel Costume
1 White Sheet – Twin or Queen
1 Set of Angel Wings
Start your angel
The first step is to grab your rubber band and tomato cage. You will tie the rubber band around the top of the 3 prongs of the tomato cage to secure them together.
Then I grabbed my strand of lights and took the opposite end that you plug into the wall and secure it into the rubber band at the top of the tomato cage.
I took a white metal hanger and straightened out the top and stuck the metal piece up into the rubber band. You will have 4 metal prongs sticking out the top with the end of the strand of lights.
I wrapped the string of lights around the hanger ends and down around the tomato cage and made sure there was enough length at the end to reach the outlet.
Next you can us e Styrofoam head or ball for the head. I have used both and both worked great for the head. Place it on top of the prongs and push in down into the prongs to secure the head on.
Then I took a white sheet and draped it over the structure. A twin white sheet or queen white sheet works best!
Next I used an angel costume and silver halo that I got from Amazon. It worked perfect for this project. You can find the angel costume I used here:
And the wings worked great with the rubber bands on the ends. You can find the wings I used here. These wings worked perfect for the project because I could secure them around the head and neck and hold the dress in place.
I tucked the top of the neck of the dress under the wing rubber bands and this secured the dress nicely into place.
Not shown in the video or blog is where I cut the sides of the angel costume skirt so the dress laid out a little fuller than if I had not cut them. I cut them up about a foot on each side.
I stuck the halo on top of the head that came in with the angel costume.
I tied the arms together with the strand of the white star ornaments that I got from Dollar Tree. This star was perfect for this project, but if you have a favorite ornament that would work great too!
And last but not least, I added a little white dove to her shoulder.
All your final touches can be personalized to what you want – there are so many possibilities and so many options for personal touches. Maybe she could even be holding a picture of your family.
And lastly you can illuminate!
I have put together a video for you to watch here….
