Tube Angel

Share This Page

This angel would look great standing tall and stately on the mantel. There are all sorts of opportunities to change the looks of the angel. Draw a singing mouth, put a print in the bodice, have colored wings, a plain skirt with beads added, or maybe add feathers. The possibilities are endless.
