Snelling makes angels from light globes

Staff writer

When Dale and Tootsie Snelling were in Tampa, Florida, in October, she spotted an item at a craft show that she decided she could replicate. It was a glass angel made from an old ceiling fan globe.

Snelling had some of those and created her own version. She ties colorful ribbons and bows around the neck of each globe, adds some greenery, and tops it with a clear, round ornament for the head. A tea light placed underneath adds sparkle to the skirt.

Snelling said she has made 10 or 12 angels so far and would like to make more, but she is having trouble finding more of the old-style globes.

Several of the angels are on display and for sale at the Wagon Wheel Express in Marion. Snelling plans to give some as gifts to family and friends.
