Angel Air Fresheners

A few weeks ago,  I was at the dollar store and saw some Christmas air fresheners. They were cheap, but not very cute. I figured I could change that. So, here she is...my air freshener angel.
.I started out with this air freshener.
I removed the plastic wrap and glued a fabric strip (about 9" x 1.5") around the bottom.
I cut out a circle about 12" in diameter and glued it to the top. Then, I glued a flesh colored ball on top of the fabric.
For the wings, I wrapped some wire around a paint bottle about eight times and then wrapped the ends around the loops to hold them together.

I shaped them and separated them.
I threaded a piece of ribbon around the middle of wings and tied it around the neck.
I didn't have yarn or doll hair, so I had to get a little creative. I found a silk flower, cut it apart, trimmed some of the petals, and glued it on. For the top layer, I folded and glued on a small flower and then glued the halo below it (the halo is made out of the same wire as the wings).
  I used another small folder flower to cover part of the halo. 
 I painted two eyes and added a little pink for the cheeks and this angel was done!
 Sweet.
 Easy.
 Cute.
 Scent-sensational!

great idea! i wonder how easy it would be to make a few modifications to your pattern so that the angel could be removed & used on a new air freshner when the old one gets used up? perhaps by glueing things to a piece of cardboard or plastic that sits on top of the air freshner instead of the air freshner itself?!
