yarn angel ornament

Make this sweet, natural Yarn Angel Ornament for your Christmas tree this year or to embellish a gift!
Step 1

First, click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™.

Step 2

Adjust size of angel wings, if desired, and click ‘Make It’ in the top right corner of your screen. Click ‘Continue in the bottom right of the next screen.

Step 3

Choose ‘Heavy Chipboard’ as your materials and place the chipboard onto your StrongGrip mat. Add masking tape around the perimeter for extra hold.

Step 4

Add the debossing + drive housing to clamp B and let the Cricut® deboss the decorative design for inside your angel’s wings.

Step 5

Switch out the knife + drive housing in clamp B and let the Cricut® cut your angel’s wings out of the chipboard.

Step 6

Cut a piece of scrap chipboard (or cardboard) so one side is 6" [15.2 cm]. Hold the wings at the top of the chipboard (or cardboard) piece and wrap yarn around them about 15-20 times. Cut the yarn from the skein.
TIP: You can add more or reduce the number of wraps, depending on how full you want your angel.

Step 7

Cut a 12" [30.5 cm] piece of yarn and thread it through the loops of yarn on the chipboard. Arrange the yarn so it is even, then slide it up to the top of the yarn wraps. Tie a double knot.
TIP: Make sure this yarn piece captures the center of the chipboard wings, too!

Step 8

Now, cut the loops open at the bottom and remove the 6" [15.2 cm] chipboard (or cardboard) piece from behind the angel’s wings. The wings should peek out from each side of the yarn strands.

Step 9

Cut a 10" [25.4 cm] piece of yarn. Move the two tails from the top knot so they are out of the way; then wrap this piece around the outside of the yarn strands 1-2 times. Tie a double knot in the back. Trim ends.

Step 10

Slide the wrap from Step 9 up the yarn strands as far as you can go and smooth out the strands.

Step 11

Trim ends so they are even across the bottom.

Step 12

Thread a bead onto the yarn tails at the top of your angel. Tie a double knot right above the bead and an overhand knot about 2½" [6.4 cm] above the double knot. Trim ends so they are even.
TIP: Add household tape at the ends to use as a "needle", if needed, to help thread the bead onto the yarn.
