How to make Paper Christmas Angels

How to make paper Christmas angels

You will enjoy making these Christmas paper angels. They are very easy to make, you can hang them on the Christmas tree, or use them as candle votive.

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.

I painted my paper angels gold and silver because I love how the light shines in these colors…but you can choose to print your angels on colored sheets too. Wouldn’t they look great in some pastel shades or with these metallic sheets?

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.
