Recycled Milk Jug Angel Craft

An angel crafted from a single one gallon milk jug, with a plastic golf ball head and white plastic bag hair. Plus a piece of sparkly pipe cleaner for a halo.  May she endure the outdoor elements with grace and serenity!

Merry Christmas!


Pieces were cut as shown below.  Note that the top rings were trimmed from the jug's opening to make the collar slightly shorter.  The front of the angel is from the jug's side that you can't see, along the corner but cut sort of like a letter T, so that the arms are on top but then folded over.

  2. Is the carton left as one piece or are the parts cut out and then glued back together? I like this. It is neat.

    1. Thank you! The wings, neck and handle are all cut out and glued back on, the main body is one piece with folded over arms.
