Angel Christmas Ornaments are Timeless
When I was a child I remember we used to have an Angel that sat atop our Christmas tree looking down on us all and safeguarding our gifts after Santa and his reindeer had been. As far as angel Christmas tree ornaments I don't recall any, we just had very basic Christmas balls and our homemade pine cones.
I also don't remember making angel ornaments at school, but I know many moons later my daughter brought home handmade angel ornaments to hang on our tree. It seems to be quite a tradition in a number of countries as friends from both the UK & US have angels that their children made at school, also my nieces in New Zealand brought them home.
My childhood Christmases were spent in the 70s and 80s when we used to decorate the whole lounge room with paper chains, balloons etc, not just the Christmas tree. Many years my brother and I would make paper angel chains to hang up, my dad would draw the angel on folded paper for us to cut out and there we would have it - several angels all holding hands!
Today I'm not going to show you angel Christmas toppers or paper angel chains, instead we're going to look at the array of gorgeous angel Christmas ornaments that are available.

Glass Angel Christmas Ornaments
There are such a wide choice of different types of angel Christmas ornaments that it's hard to know which ones to chose. The porcelain angels are cool, but I must admit I love glass Christmas ornaments - I blame my parents for that as it stems back to a family holiday where we went to the little island of Murano in Venice and watched men blow glass..........I couldn't afford any of the ornaments for sale then, but now.....
Angels in particular always seem even more serene when they're fashioned out of glass, especially hand blown glass.
Wooden Angel Christmas Ornaments
When the first Christmas trees were used they were usually undecorated and then they were gradually decorated with edible items before artisans (mainly from Germany) began to make the early Christmas ornaments. Angels were among the early Christmas ornaments made for Christmas trees and the first ornaments were made from either wax, glass or wood.
Wooden Christmas ornaments are still popular today and I've managed to find some Christmas angel ornaments made of wood for you right here -
