Weeping Angel Tree Topper  
I unpacked my tree angel about a month ago and just couldn't put her on top of my tree.

She's been upgraded. :)





I started out with a cheap doll from Michaels.

First, I pulled her legs off. :)

Then I attached her torso to a cardboard tube (also from Michaels) with some Mighty Putty (again, Michaels).

Step One

I cut her arms at the elbows, bent them and attached them to her face with epoxy. The other ends, I epoxied (and then later covered and re-sculpted elbows in Mighty Putty). I then cut off the rest of her hair.

Step Two

Then I cut some foam from a sheet (Michaels) and made wings. I attached these to her back with epoxy (Home Depot).

(picture didn't make it, sorry)

I then took Paper Clay (Michael's -- Thanks Gen!!) and modeled her dress, hair and the details on her wings.

Step Three

Lastly, I painted her with Valspar's 'Stone' spray paint.

Step Four

And now she's on my tree!

Step Five
