Styrofoam Cone Angel Family

By: Sherrie Ragsdale

I have always loved to draw and paint but I didn't really throw myself into it until after I had my first son.  I wanted to be a stay at home mom and at the same time be able to decorate the new home we had just purchased. I taught myself how to use power tools and began to build furniture which I would paint and sometimes sell.  What was once a hobby became a new part-time career which I feel so blessed to be able to do.
Make a sweet family portrait for the holidays and keep up year round.

Instructions

  1. Base coat the bottoms of all the cones with Coffee Bean.  Allow to dry.

  2. Using all the different shade of brown and tan paper, start tearing the paper and gluing them to the cones until completely covered.  Flatten the front of the heads for the faces. Tear smaller pieces of scrapbook paper for the heads. Cut out a circle for the faces and glue with Mod Podge. 

  3. Allow to dry.  Glue the heads onto the top of cones.  Add a coat of Mod Podge to all parts.  Allow to dry.  Tie twine into a bow around the neck of each angel.

  4. Tear pages out of the old book and layer into six groups of five; use the Mod Podge to glue them together.  For the last page that is showing, wrinkle in your hand and then glue to the rest of papers.  Cut out one wing on each group of papers.  Glue them together at the center and then cut a rectangle out of the leftovers to glue to the seam on the front and back of wings.  This will add extra support.  Glue the wrinkled side to the back of the angels so that you can see the wrinkle side.

  5. PROJECT TIP:  Make a flat side on the Styrofoam balls by pushing them with both hands into a hard flat surface.
