Plastic Canvas Angel Ornament

This sparkly angel will become a lovely treasure for the Christmas tree. Because of the texture of the yarn used, it almost does not look like it is made on plastic canvas.

Plastic Canvas Angel Ornament




Time required for the angel: about 1-2 hours, depending how fast you stitch

Difficulty Level: Easy

Material List:

- clear plastic canvas
- sparkly scrubby yarn in the colors of white, gold, silver and skin color
- large blunt needle for plastic canvas
- scissors


Angel Example 1
1. Count the horizontal and vertical rows of the pattern and cut out a piece of plastic canvas that is at least 2 squares larger in all directions. Make sure the pattern you are using is centered on the plastic canvas and follow the pattern to create it. Use a doubled piece of scrubby yarn as it is too thin and will not cover the plastic canvas completely. When an area is finished, you can leave the ends of the yarn hanging as you will need them to finish off the border anyway.

Angel Example 2
2. When you finished with your ornament, trim down the plastic canvas so that there is a closed straight edge around each row. Then take the same color yarn and stitch around the area next to the area to give a nice clean border for the figure. You do not want any plastic canvas showing so go twice in corner areas to assure that both sides of the corner will be covered with the yarn. Add a silver yarn loop to the top as a hanger for the angel.
