Large gumnuts are found on a variety of Eucalypts, and are fantastic for crafting. These little Christmas Angels have large gumnuts for their bodies, and bow-tie pasta wings. The Angel on the left has a sheoak head and gumnut cap hat, while the one on the right has an acorn head and acorn cap hat. Alternatively, you could use wooden beads for the heads. Little plastic eyes finish them off, and the pieces are glued together using a low-melt glue gun.
Here’s a simple angel decoration to get your Christmas creativity started.
I’ve used a large gumnut for the body, with an acorn and cap for the head. Bow tie pasta is the perfect size and shape for wings.
Use a low-melt glue gun to glue it all together, and add a dash of gold paint for some sparkle! Glue a loop of thread on the back if you’d like to hang it. Voila!
