Stuff head with a small amount of polyester fiberfill. Dip angel up to her neck into fabric stiffener. cover styrofoam with plasic wrap. Place angel's skirt over cone to shape skirt. Stiff bodice and wings with plastic wrap to help keep it's shape while drying. Make sure to completely saturate the whole angel except for head. Since the head is stuffed, you do not need to stiffen it. Allow the angel to dry overnight. When completely dry, attach gold thread to top of head to form a loop. This is the hanger.
