Old Wood Angels

A few weeks ago I used some old boards to make two angels. 

Just using a jigsaw, I rounded the top of one board for the head and neck and scalloped the bottom edges of the other board. (I just "winged it.")

I attached the wing part on the back with a couple of screws, this makes it easy to take apart to store for next year.

One angel was dry brushed with white paint. I also painted white on all the edges.

My angels are about 25" tall and wide, but you could make them larger or smaller.

Something very simple, but effective.

  4. Those angels are so adorable. Nice job.

  5. Love them! The dry brushed paint treatment gives that beautiful wood tons of texture! <3

  6. what size wood did you use? I would love to make these for my mother.

    1. They are 1x6 and about 25” tall and about the same wide. You could use any size wood really!
