I was shopping in a store called Pop Shelf and I came across some small corn whisk brooms. We are always trying to get creative here at The Shabby Tree and I just knew we could make something fun out of these brooms. As I was looking at the broom I decided it would be perfect for the body of an angel.

The supplies I will be using are:

1. One corn whisk broom

2. One styrofoam ball (mine is about 6 inches)

3. Ribbons

4. Hot glue

5. Paint brush

6. Brown paint (I’m using burnt umber and milk chocolate)

7. Gel stain (maple color)

8. Cinnamon

9. Cardboard

10. Wing pattern (you will find pattern down below)

You can find the angel wing pattern here: Angel Wing Pattern

I first removed the string around the broom.

You will then use the scissors to create a hole in the styrofoam ball. Be sure to make the hole big enough so that the broom handle fits snug into the hole.

Once the styrofoam ball was in place I then painted it. I first covered the styrofoam ball with the burnt umber.

I then added the milk chocolate and maple stain over the burnt umber. I want to create a rustic look. You will add the paint here and there to create the look you want. I sprinkled the cinnamon over the wet paint.

You will print out the wing pattern and trace onto the cardboard. Once you have the wings cut out you will paint them to match the head of the angel.

I tied a few strands of ribbon around the neck of the angel before attaching the wings.

I then added hot glue down the center of the wings and attached to the back of the angel.

I added a small grapevine wreath to the head of the angel.

This is so easy to create and I think she would make an amazing tree topper. I hope you will get creative and give this a try.
