Snowflake Angel Tree Topper

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am so pleased with the way this turned out. The angel has wings and a halo made of snowflakes; and the skirt is created using a snowflake-like design. I am also very happy with the table stand I created so the angel could be used as a centerpiece, too! What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you love thread crochet, this is a great project for the intermediate crocheter. Instructions are also included to make the form to stiffen the angel and to create the optional table stand. The finished height is 11-1/2" tall. The pattern is available for $3.50 and is written in U.S. terms.

What you will need

  • 200 yds. (183 m) White cotton crochet thread
  • size 10; a size 7 (1.65 mm) steel crochet hook; and stitch markers. Additional materials for stiffening include: manila file folders
  • clear contact paper
  • foam-core board
  • small amount of stuffing
  • fabric stiffener
  • paper towel
  • plastic wrap

She is really lovely! There is so much that could be added to her ,or done up in metallic thread, I bet she would be a great table centerpiece as well. She is different from the tree toppers you usually see,and this is a nice change
