Felt Angels

Designed by: Amy Law
Skill Level: All levels

In one West Virginia county, the local Hospice organization creates holiday trees with angel themes each year. Residents are encouraged to write a loved one's name on the angel and place it on the tree for remembrance. This simple Felt Angel design came out of such a project.

Whether you make them for charity or for decorations on your own tree, they're fast, easy, and simply beautiful. They would also make lovely package decorations on your holiday gifts this year.

Materials needed:
  • craft felt (or craft felt already cut into angel shapes)
  • cookie cutter in an angel shape
  • pen for tracing cutter shape onto felt
  • scissors
  • household iron or mini iron
  • Kreinik Press Cloth
  • Kreinik Iron-on #16 Braid in 6225 Gold, or your choice of colors
  • Kreinik Iron-on 1/8" ribbon in 6225 Gold, or your choice of colors
  1. Turn your iron onto the highest heat setting and let it heat thoroughly.
  2. Trace your desired shape onto the felt, then cut out.
  3. Begin decorating the angel as desired with iron-on thread: lay the thread at a starting point, cover with the Press Cloth, and press for several seconds until the thread adheres. Continue this way, working your design in sections.
Design Ideas:
  1. write someone's name with the iron-on braid
  2. add a halo with a piece of iron-on ribbon, ironing just the ends of the thread on the back of your angel's head
  3. add buttons or charms by stringing the iron-on Braid through the holes in the button/charms, then iron down the thread to secure
  4. tie a bow with the iron-on thread then iron it onto your felt
  5. add an ornament hanger to the back by ironing the ends of the iron-on ribbon
