Angels are close at hand

Hey everyone! I'm here today to show you a project using a super cute printable page from MixedUP Merchandise!  Aren't these little people adorable?

I got this hand statue/knick knack at my local Goodwill store. I see these alot in thrift stores or you can get them on Etsy or Ebay. If all else fails, you can use a simple vase.

I also had a pretty tissue-type paper with flowers so I got to work decoupaging the hand. I used my hand alot (no pun intended 😃) so that I could get the paper into the cracks to keep the look of the hand. 

While it was drying, I set about cutting out my little person from the cutouts page. I added some color with oil pastels & added a sash using Sari silk ribbon. For the wings, I embossed them with some chunky 2-tone powder

After printing a sentiment & applying some sisal, my little statuary artwork was complete! 

These little people cutouts are adorable & you get different sizes & different girls - and wings! 

I love Sari silk ribbon because of the luscious threads that you can pull off to add wispy texture

And I love the back of the hand! 

This is definitely an easy project to whip up - I know you could hand-le it...see what I did there? 😃  


  1. Love it- never see something like this before -love the hands...

    1. Thank you so much - it's a sweet little project. I like the hand, too! 💕

  2. This is super cool! I collect angels so this one really speaks to me!


Hey - Tell me something good!
