Use these wooden angels as gift decorations or take-home place-settings.

Here’s how

Cut a length of 1×1 pine baton into your desired lengths to represent the body and wooden beads in the size of your choice for the head. Sand, slightly rounding the edges, paint a watered-down coat of white acrylic paint and then lightly sand again to create a worn look. Trace onto felt and cut out the wing template. Using a glue gun, glue the head to the body section and the wings onto the back of the angel. Then glue a split ring at an angle on the head for the halo. Your celestial body is done!
