As shown in the photo, spread four sticks slightly apart on the one end and hot glue them together at the opposite end. This will be the angel's dress.
Hot glue the fifth stick behind the others so that it will protrude above the end where the four sticks were glued together.
Spray some of the ink mist into the plastic bowl and use a paintbrush to apply ink mist to the angel's dress.
Use a dry paintbrush to add gold dusting powder over the angel's dress.
Paint a layer of Mod Podge over the angel's dress to keep the gold dust in place and allow to dry thoroughly.
Use Bostik and glue the flowers cut from the lace fabric to the seam and to the collar of the angel's dress.
Paint a piece of white felt with the flesh colored paint and allow to dry. Place the plastic lid onto the painted felt and use a pencil to trace around the lid. Remove the lid and cut the traced circle out.
Glue the felt circle to the part of the stick that protrudes above the dress.
Cut small pieces from the brass scourer. Use Bostik to glue it to the felt circle to make the angel's hair.
Use the black pen to draw facial features on the felt.
Use Bostik to secure the skeleton leaves at the back of the dress - this will be the angel's wings.
Use Bostik to secure a piece of embroidery floss to the back of the part of the stick that protrudes above the dress. Now you can hang and enjoy the angel.
