To go with the Baby Jesus ornament I came up with these Button Angels for my students to make this year...
Use fine gauge brass wire - found in the jewelry making section of the craft store.
White buttons and a gold or silver button.
A pearl bead
Glitter bows or white feathers or whatever you want for the wings.
Bend the wire in half and thread each end through two holes in each button, starting with the largest and going to the smallest.
Next join the two wires together and thread them both through the pearl.
Separate them again and thread the wires through the gold or silver button. Tie a knot with the wire at the top of the gold or silver button. Then tie another knot at the top of the loop to make a hanger for the angel.
Tiny glitter bows make great angel wings and the little twist tie attached can be used for arms. I twisted the twist tie to the angel body right below the head. Then I shaped the arms.
You can draw a face on with a sharpie or leave it to the imagination.
