I always find it hard to choose what Christmas craft I want to make first. There are so many pretty ornaments we can craft for the holiday season. As it’s a very busy time, I always look for simple and easy Christmas DIY.

This Christmas angel decoration is perfect to personalized your fireplace mantel or as a table center. Paper angels can be used as votives 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 and hand them on the tree.
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 below.

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.
