Snowy White Peg Angel Tutorial


This weeks How-To is a PEG ANGEL in snowy white colors. Below mine is in a windowsill of icy snow... This easy-to-make angel looks sweet as a table decoration, hung up in a tree or as an advent gift (for those over 3 that still don't mouth toys!). Snow optional!
For this project you will need: peg person 6 cm /2¼” tall, small piece of white flannel, white wool felt, 1.5 m/1.5 yard length of yarn (I had some small looped boucle for this), glue, thread, needle, scissors, pipe-cleaner (mine is a glittery one), and pencils (I used aquarelle, but you can use anything that colors onto wood).
Step 1: Draw on a face. Other options are painting one on or leaving blank.
Step 2: Cut a rectangle of white flannel approx. 6.5 x 12 cm/ 2.5 x 4.75 ". Hem the bottom and 2 short sides either by machine or hand. Once the three sides are hemmed fold the topside down toward the wrong side so that the height of the strip is 4.25 cm/ 1 +5/8". Cut excess off, leaving a small seam allowance on the wrong side. Gather a running stitch along the top edge.
Step 3: Put flannel piece around peg neck with the opening in the back and pull the thread tight. Knot off securely. There will be a fabric opening in the back of the angel.
Step 5: cut the angel wings out of felt (pattern above, just right click & print).
Step 6: Put a dab of glue onto the back middle of the peg and affix the wings.
Step 7: Make lengths of hair approx. 6.5 cm/2.5 " long. If you don't have yarn you can also try using embroidery floss. Stitch together through the middle and gather them a little if need be. Then glue your yarn wig onto the top of the angels head. Trim hair if desired.
Step 8: Cut a length of pipe
cleaner 8 cm/ 2.75" long. Bend into a circle and twist the ends together. Place your angel halo on top of the hair.
Step 9: Enjoy!
