Snowflake Angel Tree Topper

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am so pleased with the way this angel 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 can also be used as a centerpiece! 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 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: manilla file folders
  • clear contact paper
  • foam-core board
  • small amount of stuffing
  • fabric stiffener
  • paper towel
  • plastic wrap
  • and straight pins. Optional materials for table stand include: 3/16" diameter dowel rod
  • 4" circular wooden plaque
