Here's how to create Angel Ornaments from Clay Pots:
To begin the Dollar Tree Christmas Crafts Clay Pot Angel Ornament, gather all supplies. Remove the packaging and labels from your materials. I have outlined some basic flesh tones and hair colors above, but to make your angels personal, select paint colors of your choice.
Basecoat the rim of the 2.5” clay pot with Titanium White acrylic craft paint. Let the paint dry and then apply a second coat, if necessary. Paint the top section of the clay pot with flesh-tone acrylic craft paint in colors of your choice. I used Natural Buff and Cocoa. Set aside to dry. Apply a second coat, if necessary. I love using Americana Acrylics from DecoArt because they have excellent one-coat coverage on most surfaces.
Attach two wiggle eyes to each angel with a glue gun and glue sticks. Add polka dot cheeks by dipping a new pencil eraser into Bubblegum Pink acrylic craft paint. Set aside to dry. Paint hair on each angel with Mustard Seed yellow and Light Cinnamon brown acrylic craft paint or select hair colors of your choice. Set aside to dry. TIP: You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you would have to wait for it to dry.
Tie a skinny gold ribbon around the rim of each clay pot and finish in a bow. Cut gold tinsel chenille stem in half, and create a circle by twisting ends around each other. Attach to top back of the angel head with a glue gun and glue sticks. Tie the sheer white ribbon in a large bow, and then trim the ends. Attach to the back of the clay pot as angel wings.
Cut a 12” length of natural jute twine, tie it in a loop with a knot, and attach it to the top of the clay pot with a glue gun and glue sticks. Draw a smile from cheek to cheek with the MONO Twin permanent black marker, which is my favorite.
