This free crochet project shows you how to make an adorable little button angel which is great for brooches, card making, Christmas crafts and fridge magnet crafts.
What you need
Scraps of yarn, white and gold
One 2-hole button
One fancy button or beads
10 inch length of ribbon
1 gold glitter stem
Crochet hook, size 5 mm (US H)
White glue, or a hot glue gun
Make the wings:
1) Chain 7, single crochet in the 2nd stitch from the hook, and in each stitch across the row. Chain 1 and turn.
2) Single crochet in each stitch across the row, chain 1 and turn.
3) Repeat row 2 for 8 more rows. Fasten off.
Fold in half to find the center, and tie a short piece of yarn tightly to gather and form the shape of wings.
Make the body:
1) Chain 3, 12 double crochet in the 2nd stitch from the hook
Slip stitch to join and fasten off. (Circle made which is the body)
Cut a 2 inch length of the ribbon, tie a scrap of yarn in the center.
Twist a 4 inch length of glitter stem to form a halo. Overlap the body at the bottom of the wings slightly and glue.
Glue a ribbon hanger on the back if using as an ornament. Glue a magnet to the back or a pinback.
Position the button, using the two holes as eyes, and glue.
Glue a button or beads on the belly.
Glue the 2 inch ribbon bow at the chin.
Tuck the glitter stem behind the button, and glue.
FINISHED! Bless your little angel, and enjoy!!
