Today’s post contains two beautiful things: a new creation and some joyful news!
These small flying heralds were indeed inspired by the birth of a real little angel in my neighbors’ house.
I created one of the small characters as presents for the new mother with wide ribbons sewn in circles to make the skirt and the cape. I then took a wooden sphere, painted eyes, nose and attached fake hair to create the head.
When color and glue dried, I added a body made with chenille stems and some small wooden beads as hands and feet. Last but not least, the final touches: a ribbon bow as wings and a small present in the angel’s hands.
Below, you can also see a more colorful version, in which the herald is a cute bee.
Enjoy the gallery and come back soon!
