This angel is made from foam? I had no idea when I looked at the picture. I thought you used a piece of leather or maybe a posterboard or something more sturdy. I would never have guessed that you used foam. I love the idea, but I am a little nervous about the medium because you have to throw away the palette when you are done, right?

I love the traditional look of this trumpeting angel ornament. The instructions indicate to use inch Styrofoam, however I imagine thin balsa wood might work just as well to cut out the angel form. The rustic appearance of this angel and the old-style shape is what appeals to me.

I like this idea, but I would like to do it without it costing anything. Do you think a Styrofoam meat package would work? Also, I have some spray paint in silver, I think. Would that work on Styrofoam or would it melt it? With the holidays coming on, I'd like to save my pennies for gifts but I'd like to do this, too!

I'd love to hang this in my entryway to welcome guests.
