A simple macrame angel to decorate your Christmas tree and home this festive season.
In 2020 I collaborated with the Winchester Nightshelter, now called The Winchester Beacon, and I asked the macrame community to make and donate macrame angels to them. For every angel sold a night at the shelter is paid for a homeless person during the festive months. THE FREE TUTORIAL here.
This year, 2021, I am sharing a new tutorial with you that compliments the one form 2020. I hope you enjoy making this angel and gift them to someone special.
