Paper Cone Angel Craft
This cute angel can sit as a centerpiece or dinner table decoration, or as a seating arranger (just write the name of each person on an angel and set them on the plates) or you can put her on top of a small Christmas tree!
What you will need:
paper or cardstock
glue or tape
1/2 large paper doily or 1/2 circle of white paper
OPTIONAL: glitter glue, sparkles, sequins, lace or markers
Step One-Cut the doily in half (so you have a half circle). If you wish you can
then add glitter glue, sparkles or sequins to decorate the wings.
Step Two-Cut out the half circle from heavy paper or cardstock. Pull one edge over to another and glue or tape so you have formed a cone. This is the angel’s body.
Step Three- Glue the doily wings onto the back of the cone.
Step Four-You can then make head for your angel by coloring and cutting out a face to attach to the front of the cone or attaching a small painted Styrofoam ball.
Step Five- Decorate the cone as desired with sparkles, glitter glue, sequins or lace.
Variations-You can decorate your angels to reflect each family member or as a gift topper.
Age recommendations-This project is recommended for all children age 3 years old and up.
