Christmas crafts are my favorite. There so many pretty ornaments we can make for holidays season. As it’s a very busy time, I always look for simple and easy Christmas DIY, don’t you?
This Christmas angel decoration is perfect to personalized your fireplace mantel or as table center. Paper angels can be used as votive if you place a little LED tea candle in it. My kids love to light them up at night.
If you prefer to use the angels as tree ornaments, nothing more simple, just pass an ornament hook in the top of the head.
I painted my paper angels gold and silver because I love how the light shine in these colors…but you can choose to print your angels on colored sheets too. Wouldn’t them look great in some pastel shades?
This easy angel ornament is super fast to make, I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did. You will find the instructions, the video and the free template here under.
How to make Paper Christmas Angels
Material you will need to make your angels decorations:
- Paper (the thicker the best)
- Free Angel template (If you already are a member, click HERE for direct access)
- Gold and silver paint
- Glue stick
- LED tea candle
The angel template is available in my FREE resource library along with a bunch of other great prints and patterns. All you need to do is fill out the form and check your inbox for a welcome email with the password in. Click here to get in >>>> FREE LIBRARY ACCESS
Download and print the FREE angel template. A thick paper, as bristol or drawing paper, will work best. Cut out the two shapes: one for the angel body and the second for the wings.
Paint both sides of each piece in gold and/or silver. If you printed your angel on colored sheets, you can skip this part.
Apply some glue on the flap, wrap the angel body to glue both ends together. The base circle must be width enough to place a LED tea candle in it. Hold with some paper clips while the glue dries.
Take the wings and put some glue in the center, place them on the back of the angel and hold while the glue dries.
And done! You just made a pretty Christmas Angel in no time. Repeat to make as many as you want.
You can place your paper angels on a shelf, on your fireplace mantel or use them as table decor for your Christmas dinner, I love how they look with the LED candle lighted in. What do you think? Where would you like to display your angels ornaments? In which color would you like to make them?
