Christmas angel

I wanted something to hang over my Willow Tree nativity set, and so I set out over the weekend to make this.
I love it.  :)



 I made it on an 11 x 14 canvas.
 
The wings are hand embroidered...
 
I love the way the cross came out...

Her wreath of holly...

One of my favorite Christmas songs...

The Willow Tree nativity set is my favorite Christmas decoration, and I'm happy I have something handmade now to hang over it.


There are copies of my Christmas tree angel here if you want one too:)

It turned out beautifully! I love the textures and colors and the lyrics to O Holy Night are perfect! <3

Your angel is so sweet and I LOVE your nativity. I will be making a back drop for mine but it is going to be a felt picture of Bethlehem. Have a blessed day.
