Recycled Plastic Bottle Angel

Here is an angel I made from a coffee creamer bottle. I cut out the bottom so it can be put on our Christmas tree. The body is covered with stampted tissue paper. The wings are also tissue paper wrapped onto wire forms. Her head was sculpted from polymer clay with a crown inserted in her head. I go through so many of these bottles I wanted to try to incorporate them into my art.

I was inspired to show you this angel because Zeb who is in my Latest Trends in Mixed Media yahoo group created a tutorial to recycle plastic bottles into works of art. She did a fabulous job and I am sure it will inspire you as well. Please check out her blog for this awesome tutorial
Let me know what you think!

Denise - I love this angel. I have made a snowman out of the bottles before. It was for a swap so I am going back to look for a pic of it. - Nicki

Your angel is so creative and wonderful! That's great that she sits on top of your tree! This would be a neat thing for my son to do for his teacher. Thanks for showing us your angel!
