Broken Plate Angel "Junk-le-bells"



China plate angel

I did these angels about 7 years ago and they have always been my sister's favorite ornament. Shame on me I didn't get any close up pics of them and I used some very beautiful plates so please use your imagination.....
First get your plate pieces--I used a wet saw to cut mine. You could try using a glass cutter and lightly tapping to break the plate into pieces.
The head is a round tile mosaic piece. I used enamel paint and heat set per manufactures directions. Glue to plate.


Use bits of yarn for hair and star tinsel



Add a ribbon hanger and ribbon wings



Ain't she sweet?

  1. I have so many dishes in my stash waiting to be broken! I've never thought of using a broken piece for a dress. That's great! I'm glad you joined up.

  2. Very nice Kimmy. I think we all have a stash of dishes we could use for this project. I love the floral pattern.
