DIY Angels for Mother’s Day Gifts
Per YouGov.com’s 2021 data, 24% of moms polled would prefer a homemade gift for Mother’s Day. With this in mind, consider crafting mom a wire angel for display in her garden.
DIY Wire Garden Angel
- 1 pair wire cutters
- 1 roll (39 ft.) of each color desired 2 mm aluminum wire I love crafting with this wire! Craftoutlet.com offers it in 10 colors!
- beads (optional
- Gently unroll one third to one half of the rolled wire. Try to keep the wire as smooth as possible.
- Start by forming the first head loop, followed by the first body loop (much larger than the head). You're basically making a figure eight. Repeat two times.
- Now wrap the wire snuggly once around the neck of the angel. Form two additional body loops of wire, but no additional head loops. (The head would be too thick and heavy if you added two additional head loops.)
- Next add 3 wing loops on each side (upper back of the body) by following the figure-eight pattern. The wings should be larger than the head but smaller than the body.
- Snip the wire 6 to 8 inches from the spot where you completed the wings.
- Wrap the wire vertically one complete time around the neck joining the body to the head. (Begin the wrap at the top of the body and wrap forward and up – vertically – through the head and back down.
- Finally, wrap the remaining few inches of wire in and out around the head of the angel to create hair.
- Lastly, fan the five body loops and pull down slightly on each to give each loop a little more of a football shape.
- While you are forming the angel, you can add beads or jingle bells to the wings or body if you wish. I, however, loved the shine of the wire and how it played with the light, and chose not to embellish the angel.
Without a doubt, your mom will find multiple spots in her garden in need of an angel. For this reason, don’t hesitate to make at least a few wire angels to grace her garden. Since craftoutlet.com offers the wire in a variety of colors, you can choose her favorites! By the same token, our wire garden angels beautifully accent a potted flower for Mom.
