Creative Saturdays – A little Christmas Angel Craft

I went to Bible Study with the Bible Babes, yup that is what we call ourselves. The hostess had made beautiful little angels as gifts. Here is the gift she gave me.

So I thought I would try a kids’ version of this craft using supplies I had around the house.

Materials:

      • Wool, moss, or anything to make hair
      • styrofoam ball, wooden ball (for head)
      • material (cut into a circle)
      • egg carton (1 section cut out); small ceramic pot – for the base
      • marker, paints,
      • trim for halo, or pipe cleaner
      • cut out wings.. from whatever you have

Instructions:

Cut the material to make a circle. The size is about a 5 inch diameter

Paint the face.

Put on the hair. I could find no wool, no moss. So I opted for …. oatmeal. Yes I painted the oatmeal brown and let it dry. Then I pasted the browned oatmeal to her head.

Now glue the material on to the egg carton section (or pot). I actually used 2 egg carton sections to make it high enough for the skirt.

Glue the head onto the body.

I put a ribbon around her neck. You could add earrings, a bow, a pendant, button.

Add the halo.

I would let the kids use their imaginations totally on this. I can see very decorative angels with lots of spunk. Send me your kids’ pictures if you use this craft.
 

Don’t forget to send me your child’s pictures. Send them to Janis Cox and I will put them up in the Children’s Gallery.
