How To Make the Paper Clip Angel Ornament

Take your paper clip angel and ribbon that is about 8-10 inches long.

Fold the ribbon in half and push it through the center of the clip. Loop the ends up and through the loop you just created wit the ribbon. That should give you a knot that you paper clip angel's head will sit on.

Step Two:

Thread your ribbon through the sewing needle eye.

You will have two ends to thread through so make sure your needle is big enough to get through.

If you have a bead that has bigger hole then you may not need to use a sewing needle for this part. My bead had a very small hole.

Pull your ribbon through the bead.






Step Three:

You can tie another knot above the Paper Clip Angel (The angel head) if you want too. But, you will need to tie off the ends at the top of the ribbon if you plan to make this a Christmas Tree Ornament. If you plan to use this on a Christmas Gift, then you may not tie the ends.
