These fun little repurposed spindle Angels are made from a couple of the wooden spindles out of my precious basket of spindles that I found at a garage sale last summer.
I have been wanting to make some Angels from spindles way before I even found the basket full of spindles. Just wasn’t sure how I wanted to make them, plus I was still on the hunt for wooden spindles.
After seeing Laurel’s Angels that she had made at “Chipping With Charm”, I was inspired to get started making my own Repurposed Spindle Angels.
How To Make Repurposed Spindle Angels
Off to Hobby Lobby I went, looking for some kind of base for my Spindle Angels. I found this little dish/planter that I thought would be perfect for the taller angel.
For the smaller angel I was still trying to figure out what to use for the base.
While at Hobby Lobby I did pick up some wood heart plaques that I thought would work. But they just didn’t provide the look that I was looking for.
In the mean time my hubby was in the kitchen taking down an out of date light fixture (still working on our remodel), when my eyes zeroed in on the glass globes. The glass globes would be the perfect base.
So I dashed over and grabbed all three ;-D globes, which can be used in other projects as well.
The problem for my angel base has been solved. Now I just needed to antique the globe that I will be using, and I did that with a dab of coffee, and Mod Podge painted on the inside of the glass globe.
This little angel’s wings were made from wire.
Both repurposed angels have a metal key attached around their necks with a piece of jute.
Have you made anything out of old wood spindles?
