Do you mean like a Christmas Tree topper?

If so....

My mom has one, now coming 60 years old that I know about...was in the family for a long time and passed through generations.

"She" is beautiful on the tree.

Sorry, I don't know of anyone who does "a dieing art" like this...

Maybe contact a "chair caner", you know the guy who weaves seat and chair backs...they might know someone.

I'd like to see what one looks like.

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.

You and me both. I know a lot of people braid and make jewelry, keychains, sweater pulls, hatbands, etc out of horse hair, but I've never heard of someone making an angel out of hair.

Pilgrim is making a horsehair snow angel.
I guess that isn't what you mean though.

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today.

I'd like to see a tree topper one too, though.

So basically, it's just a loop of hair with more hair sticking out of the sides for wings? Yeah, not something I'd buy.

Maybe the older ones are different ?

Straying a bit from the topic, I started bringing home baling twine that was actually twine rather than plastic thinking I would wind some up and make an old-fashioned twine ball for my mother, who has mentioned missing having one for ages now.

It didn't wind up well, but I just kept on bringing it home until I'm thinking of making a scare-crow. Looping a head and arms similar to these horsehair angels. Then a second bunch tied in half for legs, tie off for hands and feet, dress in kids clothes, and there you go.

Think it would work?
