Paper Clip Angel Ornament *EASY* 

12 inch piece of 1/8th inch ribbon
1-silver 8mm round bead
1-#2 size paperclip clamp
scissors, glue and craft needle


Fold ribbon in half.  Tie ribbon onto the paper clip using a half hitch by putting the loop end of ribbon through the center of the paper clip, then pull loose ends of ribbon through the loop and tighten.  Add the silver bead onto the loose ends of the ribbon and slide bead down to the knot.  Depending on the size of the hole in the bead, you may need to use a craft needle to add the bead onto the ribbon.  Determine the desired length of the ribbon and tie an overhand at the top and trim.  You may want to add a drop of glue to the bead to keep it from sliding.  
This can be done with wire or ribbon, be creative. If using wire try colored wire and tiny seed beads wrapped around the "wings". A dot of super glue will keep the wire from slipping.
