Clothespin Angel Christmas Ornaments

Are you already thinking about Christmas? I know it’s crazy! October is not even finished yet and we are already planning and creating Christmas decoration right?. Actually, the only thing that stops me from start assembling my Christmas tree is our Halloween decoration LOL. As you probably know by know I joined an awesome team of gals to bring 31 Days of Handmade Christmas Ornaments and today is my turn. I made these cute clothespins Angel Christmas Ornaments but not before almost screwing things up LOL… I’ll explain in a bit.

You see, I’m guessing you know English is not my first language so some expressions or words are not tacit to me such as Ornaments. In my head, I translated that as anything that we can use for decoration, so since most people were working on Christmas tree stuff, I decided to go with something different… BIG MISTAKE, this was the perfect moment for me to follow the masses.

How did I screw up?

I created this cute Glittered Candles Centerpiece and of course, I couldn’t be more off-topic here because there’s no way I could hang those candles in the tree LOL. for a moment I felt embarrassed and sad, I felt so dumb. But I got a happy ending woot! These wonderful ladies let me try something else and I came up with these cute little fellas! I LOVE how my clothespin angles Christmas ornaments turned out and can’t wait to start decorating my Christmas tree.


The good side I already have another Christmas decoration to share with you hahaha!

Wanna know a secret? I set only the top of my tree in a regular plant pot so I could take pics of my angels LOL. Everyone in the house was looking at me with weird faces LOL.

SO, I must tell you that if you like this project, you are going to love how easy and fun they are to make. For kids are perfect. My girl wanted to help but in this particular case I was in a hurry so I promised her that we would be doing the rest of the angels together! Yayyy can’t wait!

Let’s see how I made these cute Clothespin Angel Christmas Ornaments


  • Wooden clothespins
  • Acrylic paint {light pink and white, or make your own pink like I did LOL}
  • White 2 Inches satin ribbon
  • White plush iron wires
  • Black and red fine markers
  • Snowy glitter
  • Hot glue gun
  • Gold thread.

Ok so, first clean your clothespins so they are free from dust.

Then paint the bottom {from spring to the end} in white and then the top in light pink since it’s going to be your Angel head.


Let them dry for 30 minutes


Then spread white glue or mod podge in the white area and add glitter all over and let it dry for a few minutes {30 minutes is best}. Looks so cute!


While it dries, create bows with your satin ribbon. Make the as big as you want the wings to be. Let the tails long too and then cut as needed. The trick here is to make the first bow and adjust it until you like how it looks with the clothespin size. Once you are fine then cut excess of ribbon and then use that as a base to cut the strips for the rest.


Once the clothespins are dry, paint the faces with your markers. I love making them with eyes closed and open mouth like they are singing… Wink!


Then cut a piece of plush iron wire. In my case was about half of the whole piece. But since it may vary, just do some trial and error with the first.

Start placing the middle of the wire in the front of the angel where you see the metal part. The go around the back and come back to the front. Now you have the belt and the arms.


Shape the arms like he’s praying. I did it folding both ends.


Then cut another piece of plush iron wire for the halo of about 2 inches. Fold about 2/3s 90 degrees. Then using a marker big enough make a circle with the longest part.


With hot gun, glue it to the back of the angel.


Then glue the ribbon.


And the last but not least glue a piece of gold thread so you can hang it!


There you go!!! You have some really cute Angels for you Christmas tree!!!
