To finish Angel
1. Stuff the two cotton balls into head. Take one white pipe cleaner, and bend in middle to form hands, and insert one end into each sleeve, and fasten under head. This will bring the sleeves into place.

2. Take the ribbon and fold in half. About 6 inches down, tie a knot in ribbon, place knot at the back of the head, and tie twice in front with a knot. Take silver beading and fold almost in half, and lay on top of knot on the ribbon, tie once, now tie ribbon in bow.

3. Take short piece of silver pipe cleaner to form halo, and glue halo to top of head. Glue flower to center of bow. Let dry.

For wings (please read all instructions first)

1. Take one piece of white wire and bend into wing shape, twist ends together. Repeat with other wire. Lay netting over wing shapes and cut out, leaving about 1/4 inch over wire.

2. Cover a flat surface with foil, and lay wires on it. Soak netting in glue mixture, then place on top of wires, spread netting evenly with fingertips. Sprinkle glitter over wings, let dry over night.

3. Take the 4 pieces of gold pipe cleaner, and fasten them end to end.. With one wing, lay a row of glue on top of the wire, lay the gold pipe cleaner on top of the wing, cut to fit and press into place, repeat with other wing. (be careful, this is stick to any thing you lay it on, so after you lay the gold pipe cleaner on top of the wings, left them up and turn over, several times so they don't stick to anything. )

4. Lay angel face down, with hanger pulled up above head, lay wings on third top of back of angel with wings touching. Glue in place. Let dry.
