Supplies needed - 2 cups of flour (dough)

Divide out enough dough to make desired size of finished ornament. Roll the ball of dough flat. Using a cookie cutter of your choice, cut the base of your ornament. Make a small hole with a toothpick near the top of the ornament to place a ribbon through to allow for hanging.

Separate out small amounts of dough (proportional to the base) to form the angels head, body, wing(s), etc.

Head: Roll a round ball of dough (the size desired). With a butter knife cut the ball in half and place it on the base. With a sewing needle or toothpick create facial features. Using another small amount of dough, make the angel's hair in whatever style you prefer. Use a toothbrush, vegetable brush or comb to add texture to the hair.

Body: Separate out as much dough as necessary in order to create the angel's body in proportion to her head. Form the angel in whatever pose and garments you desire. Use a butter knife to cut the shape you want. Be creative. Add texture using various kitchen utensils.

Wings: A small portion of dough is all you will need for the wings. Form the wing(s) in the position and shape of your choice. Use a toothpick to add texture.
