A Re-Purposed Laundry Stomper Christmas Angel

Rustic Christmas Angel www.organizedclutterqueen.blogspot.com
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.
