A Merry Little Christmas

Today we read A Merry Little Christmas by Mary Engelbreit and made an angel ornament.

 Product Details
A is for angel
atop a tall tree,
aglow with the light of
what Christmas should be.

~from A Merry Little Christmas

In their tiny village in the woods, Gregory Mouse and his family are busy decorating gingerbread houses, wrapping presents, baking cookies, and sledding down snowy hills.

This is a delightful holiday alphabet book that is written in rhyme.

T made an angel with doily wings ornament.

I love the angel face he drew.  :)


  • card stock (any color)
  • scissors
  • sequins, trim, glitter
  • glue
  • white paper doily
  • fine point marker
  • yarn
  • gold wire garland or pipe cleaner
  • monofilament or gold cord (for hanging)


Cut a triangle and a circle out of card stock for the angel's gown and head respectively.

Decorate the triangle with sequins and any other decorative item(s) you wish to use.

Fold the doily in half, and glue it together.  Then, glue it to the back of the triangle.

Use a marker to draw a face on the circle.  (I stamped a face using Stampkins.)  Glue the circle to the top of the triangle.

Add yarn for hair.  Shape the garland into a halo, and glue it to the back of the circle.

Let it dry thoroughly, add a loop of monofilament, and then hang the ornament on your Christmas tree!  :)

My inspiration for the ornament:
