One of my cousins made "kitchen angels" for all our aunts this year at Thanksgiving,and my aunt wanted to send some to our relatives who didn't make it to Thanksgiving, and asked me to figure them out:
Here's the original:
We went to the dollar store and found everything we needed (except for the ribbon, I pulled that out of my stash).
1 wooden spoon
1 tea towel
1 pot holder (preferably matching the towel)
1 rubber band
about 6 inches of star garland
hot glue gun
Take your tea towel and fold it in half, then fold accordion style.
Put a rubber band around the top of the towel and stick the spoon handle through the rubber band and push it down to the bowl of the spoon.
Cut a length of ribbon and tie in a bow covering the rubber band
Take your potholder and accordion fold it 2-3 times.
Cut a length of ribbon and tie it around the middle of the potholder (tightly, to keep the potholder together)
Glue the potholder to the back of the spoon/towel
Take star garland and form into a small circle
hot glue to the bowl of the spoon to make the halo
(optional, and if the potholder doesn't have a hanging loop on the top - Take a small piece of ribbon and tie into a loop. glue to the back of the spoon to act as a hanging loop for the angel.

If anyone needs step-by-step photos, I still have one more to make that I could take photos of.
