Monday’s Make-it . . . my Christmas tree angel

Happy Monday!!! This year for our Christmas tree top we decided to have an angel ornament grace the top of our tree … so the search started for the perfect angel tree topper to add to our decor…. we found a beautiful one with lovely white feathered wings; however it was blonde (hint hint ….. waaaas).It makes sense to ‘me” to have a brunette angel since “I” am a brunette … hahahaha … I laugh, but seriously I was on the mission to find a brunette angel and when I couldn’t find one I improvised by treating the lovely blonde angel tree topper to the ‘hair salon’, here’s her hair salon day:

It was very easy to dye her hair with a black marker, she even received brown highlights (I had a brown marker at home as well). At one point the hair dye (um, I mean the marker) slipped and marked her face, but I easily removed it with a Q-tip dipped in nail polish remover. Here’s the beauty:

So, if I was a blonde and I found a brunette angel tree topper I believe I would paint her hair white … the 1st coat of the hair dye :) … then add beautiful yellow highlights! Have a haaaaapppppy holiday! See you on my Wednesday post!

  1. She looks awesome. I always think the tree topper is one of the hardest pieces of a tree. Perhaps I’ll make my own next year. We picked up a Santa for our tree and he looks pretty good…but there’s still something missing!

      Thank u! Hubby gave me a wierd look when I told him of my idea, then he realized that I wasn’t kidding .. he loves it too such a good sport with my ideas :)

    Hey,I ran across this looking for a dark hair angel tree topper,and I am like you .Why no dark hair angels? seems unfair, and looks like someone would open their eyes and think not everyone like blonde angels. I see you made your work,well I am still looking and hope I don’t have to do the same as you did.Yours is beautiful I love the fluffy wings which seems hard to find too.

    • Ada says:

      Hi Leona, good luck in your search. Option B – dying her hair with a brown marker didn’t take much time – which may be faster (+ economical than searching for a brunette angel :) Glad u like the fluffy beautiful wings too!

    This is awesome. My sister is brunette and is looking for a brunette angel tree topper. I think I might give this a try to give to her as a Christmas gift! What a great idea! Hope mine turns out like yours – she is a beautiful angel! I’m so happy your post showed up in my online search for a tree topper for her -now I can’t wait to shop to find one for her!

    • Ada says:

      Hi Cheri! She will LOVE it esp since it shows you invested time (and love) in transforming the angel topper justt fro her :)

      • Cheri says:

        My sister loved it! She asked where I got it and couldn’t believe I used a Sharpie on her! Thanks so much for the idea!

    Thank you for this. I’ve been wanting a brown haired angel too and haven’t had much luck. I would never have thought to try this.

    • Ada says:

    Thank You so very much for posting this! Hubby and I are also brunette and I’ve serched high and low for a dark hair angel. I thought I might be able to color the hair but didn’t know how. I love crafts but I’m not crafty lol. Your idea is perfect!! I can’t wait to show my Hubby. Even I can do this :). Now the angle hunt. Thank You again! Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and God Bless. Oh one question do you mind telling me where you got your angel she’s perfect?! Tara

    • Ada says:

      Hi Tara, how wonderful that you love the idea … simple fix right, just take the angel to a beauty salon (wink!). As for our xmas angel we purchased it a while ago so I can’t recall where it’s from. Buy I am sure you will find a beautiful one that you can PERSONALIZE to us brunettes. Let me know how it turns out (would love to see a photo). For more unique, quick, & easy tips, signup for my newsletter at for bitly.com/adasnewsletter // Have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AS WELL!
