Angel Yucca Pod Christmas Ornaments

Recently the girl's grandmother came for a visit. She had a very special project for them to help her with. The firs thing they had to do was go out and collect yucca pods from our yard. We have an endless supply so please let me know if you don't have any!

Next the girls gathered around their Grandmother with a pile of leftover Christmas ribbon, felt, and yarn and some wooden balls found at the craft stores (or you could use hazelnuts).

( please note the 2 year old in this picture did not poke her eye out or anyone elses with the scissors)

Using some tacky glue they made the angel's hair from yarn and attached to the wooden ball. They either painted on some eyes and mouth or used some left over googly eyes from our pumpkin decorating.

Next they used left over fabric to make little dresses for the angels. They made ribbon bows for the wings. The halos were little pieces of ribbon or garland. Last they glued a little ribbon loop on the back so they could hang it from a tree.

It was easy and fun. I think they turned out great and we just may have to have our own yucca pod angel tree this year!
