I'm sharing a super easy Christmas project today that I made from a rusty, vintage laundry stomper/plunger that I picked up yesterday for $5 at the consignment shop.
It really didn't take much imagination to see that this stomper could become an angel.
This is the bottom of the stomper. The handle was missing.
I needed wings for my angel, and luckily, I had these rusty angel wings from Tin Tiques in my craft stash.
I added an ivory white wash on the rusty wings.
Then cut them in half with an old scissors, and bent them into a little curve.
I also had this wispy candle ring already in with my Christmas decorations. I cut off a few branches to make it smaller, and added some white berries.
I then tied the wreath on in back under the angel's "arms" with jute. I also glued the wings behind the "arms" with E6000.
Here's my completed Laundry Stomper Junk Angel! Definitely one of a kind.
