Quickie Angel Ornie

Its a cool and drizzly day here in the Rockies and I can't think of a better way to pass the time than working in the studio.   I have been working on some of my bottlecap tags, wooden spoon snowmen, and this new ornie:

I know the pics are a little dark, but Mr. Smokey (my cat) was snoozing in the area of the studio were I normally take my pics.  When I get a few more done, I will get some better ones. 

Anyway, I saw this idea on Pinterest so I thought I had better give it a try.  I bought a bouquet of white flowers (maybe gardenias??), 5 to a bunch at the dollar store.  That's $.20 for each ornie.  I cut off the green plastic base but left about 3/4" on the stem.  I had the round head that I use for my salt shaker angels already painted.  These have a flat side with a hole in it.  I simply stuck some hot glue in the hole and inserted the head.  I had the little wings (I told you I am like my in house Michael's store)and glued them on the back of the head.  I had a small screw hook which I screwed into the top of the head, added some hair, some pink organza ribbon......and drum roll please....Here you have it!
Okay, I wanted you to see this a bit better.....but don't worry, it was easier to move the ornie than the cat.  As with any of the crafts I show you, make it your own.  Change up the hair, the flower, add different trim.  Any little girl would love to have this for her very own....
