What You'll Need:
1 bump chenille stem
scissors
glue
1 pom, 3/4 inch
2 metallic stems, 6mm each
2 wiggle eyes, 3mm each
1 pom, 3mm

Cut a 2-bump piece from the bump chenille stem. Fold this piece in half, and twist the ends together. Fold over 1/2 inch of the folded end to eliminate the pointy look.

Glue the 3/4-inch pom to the other end. This is the angel's head.

Bend a metallic stem into the shape of 2 wings. Glue the wings to the back of the chenille bump, just below the pom.
