6. Similarly, fold the other felt cut-out and use scissors to round out the edges on the open ends of the folded felts. These are the wings of the pinecone angel.

Isn’t she a cute little angel? To make it into an ornament, simply tie a little thread and glue it to the back of the pinecone. After we made it, the kids decided the pinecone angel should sit next to the pinecone snowy owl, so we left it off the tree.
