Bath Pouf Angel




By Noreen Doll.

You need only a few things to put a fluffy bath pouf angel together.

The angel can be placed in a centerpiece or hung by the loop attached to the pouf.Crafty Journal - Bath Pouf Angel

 

What You Need

l Large or 2 Medium White Bath Poufs

2 Coffee Filters

1 Gold or Silver Pipe Cleaner

Gold or Silver Ribbon – to match the pipe cleaner

Warm Melt Glue

Needle and Thread.

Instructions

1. If using 2 medium bath poufs, use the needle and thread to stitch one on top of the other, tucking the loop in between the two.

Run the thread through both poufs 2 or 3 times before knotting.

2. To make a wing, fold a coffee filter in half and crease the fold.

Cut off about 1/4 of the half circle as shown.

The bottom piece is what the finished wing will look like.

Use double sided tape along the open edges of each wing to hold the edges together.

Make a second wing the same way.

3. Curve the wings like a bowl.

4. Use a gold or silver pipe cleaner to make a halo for the bath pouf angel.

Make a bend about 6 inches in from one end, and form the rest of the pipe cleaner into a circle.

Wrap the end of the circle around the pipe cleaner near the bend, as shown.

5. Tie a ribbon at about the center of the top bath pouf. Tie it snuggly so that it makes an indentation in the pouf for the angel’s neck.

[If using 1 bath pouf, tie the ribbon about 1/3 of the way down from the top.]

Tie a nice bow in the ribbon at the front.

I did have to adjust the pouf above and below the ribbon to make it look nice.

6. Tuck the long end of the halo behind the ribbon and into the folds of the bath pouf.

Pull it down until the halo looks how you like it. Trim off any excess pipe cleaner.

Sew a few snug stitches around the pipe cleaner end and into the poufs above and below the ribbon to hold it nicely in place.

(You could use hot glue to hold the pipe cleaner, but it could melt the nylon pouf, and the stitches would hold better.)

7. Pin or glue the wings in place and use a few stitches on each one above and below the point to hold.

The bath pouf angel is ready to be used. It is not a toy and should not be played with by children.

Tips

Bath poufs can be a little difficult to work with, and I’ve found that usually a few stitches work better than glue for holding parts in place. The stitching will be behind the angel and out of sight.

Use glitter on the edges of the wings for a sparkly look.

Pastel colors could be used instead of white bath poufs.
