Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

It's time for the Winter Coffee Lovers blog hop! It runs for a week and there is a TON of holiday inspiration, so be sure to check it out! 

Tis the season, so I made a coffee angel ornament


A while back, I had a large amount of leftover coffee, so decided to experiment and soaked tags and cheesecloth and lace in it to soak up the delicious coffee colors. I took two tags and turned one into the body and cut the other in half and made the wings. I cut the head out of scrap tag. 


I folded some lace around my head to create the hair and added two buttons (28 Lilac Lane Toasted Graham) and glued it all down. 


I added a strip of lace at the bottom of the wings and covered them with cheesecloth, then went around and glittered them up with sequins (28 Lilac Lane).


For the angel's dress, I layered several different laces and overlapped them. 



My Coffee Angel wishes you a Merry Christmas and joyous holiday season! Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy this year's hop!
