Tie Angel

  My aunt was entering a convent, so I made a little something for her to take with her as a reminder.  I made this angel using a necktie and a bowtie of my grandfather’s and jewelry and some bits and bobs of my grandmother’s.

  This was made using a foam cone.  It is solid so it can stand up on it’s own.  Lily Sugar ‘n Cream makes yarn cones which are hollow on the inside and make great tree-toppers.  So I would love to make more tie angels, but I have no cones, and yarn is not really a medium I use, so buying the yarn for the cones would be a waste.
