Coffee Ice Cream Angel

Post by lyndaejane on Thu 17 Oct 2013 - 17:42

Have been promising to make one of these for ages - sorry, same problem with orientation as the last one.



Think her arms need to be a bit shorter, so will do that next time.  Apart from the paper I used for her dress and to cover her wings, everything else is recycled (and washed, of course) and based on three ice-cream sticks and two coffee stirrers.  Longer coffee stirrer cut in half for the legs, slightly shorter stirrer cut in half for the arms.  Legs and arms glued onto a small ice-cream stick as a body, with an identical stick glued over the top.  Piece of paper wrapped round in a cone for the dress:  collar made of two small strips of paper put over shoulders, as the dress has to be wrapped under the arms.  Paper glued to the printed side of a Magnum stick and glued on as wings.  Face drawn on.  Hair made of thin offcuts of cream paper, curled round a knitting needle and glued on to cover the gap between the two ice-cream sticks which make the body.

That's a bit of fun, and good excuse to enjoy some lollies too!

I wouldn't worry about the length of the arms, don't all northern angels have long arms?
She's cute.
