I was having a hard time finding a bag of beads that I liked to represent the angel head. So...the kids and I picked out two necklaces we liked. I cut the necklace and took the beads off of it. It worked very well.
To tie this together, I followed the directions from this website: http://craftyjournal.com/easy-paperclip-angel-ornament/
Start by cutting a piece of cloth ribbon about 11 inches. Fold the ribbon piece in half.
Using the end of a paperclip, push the bead through both ends, creating a loop on one end.
Slide the loop end under the paperclip, as shown below.
Pull the bead end through the loop to create a knot.
Pull tight and push the bead to the end of the knot.
The necklace I found also had what looked like crown pieces. I pushed one of those through the ends of the ribbon and set it on top of the bead. Then tie a knot to keep the bead and crown (if you have one) in place.
Tie the ends together in a knot as well. Trim the edges.
