Pin Prick Paper Angel Ornaments

1993 Better Homes and Gardens Christmas Ideas supply these angel ornaments. I would print on brochure weight, watercolor or photo paper (If I had a printer....right now I'm out of luck. Printer died). The angels are outlined in gold then pricked with a variety of needles, nails and thumbtacks. Gold cord for hangers and the harp if desired. Click on the pictures for larger versions.


  1. Thank you so much for the precious angels.
    Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  2. These are so pretty I'm going to have to give them a try!

  3. Aw, these are sweet. I love their faces. I wonder how they'd do on a heavier weight vellum? Kind of transparent, but where the pricking is done, the dots would tend to look white. I may have to give that a try!

    Lovely. I am thinking about using a fine tipped gold glitter glue applicator for the out lines. Thanks, Meggie! Hope you can solve your printer problem soon. I picked up a very nice one last summer at Walmart, clearanced for $25, and including ink cartridges, of course. Best from tigerlille.
