Making Christmas angels with children – folding paper angels

For Christmas crafts you need a wooden bead, thread and paper in any color, but these are best for Christmas. First prepare the pearl when you are making the Christmas angel with children. Paint a face on it and thread yarn through the hole. Now you need the paper. Take two square sheets of paper (origami paper is sold ready-made in a square shape) and fold them into a fan. Then shorten one of the two compartments at one end before pulling the “harmonica” apart.

Fold the larger piece in half and glue the two ends together. A small hole is created at the fold through which you thread one of the ends of the yarn. Glue the other fan onto the larger one and wrap the yarn around it, then put the end back through the bead. Pull the yarn tight and tie a knot above the wooden ball. If you are making these Christmas angels with children, you can now add hair and a halo if you wish. Wool threads are very well suited for hair, for example, while the halo can be tinkered with wire or glittering pipe cleaner.

Tinker angels with coffee filters for Christmas

For this project you need three coffee filters, a paper cup, golden string, toothpicks and a small styrofoam ball. Once you have everything ready, you can make the Christmas angel with the children. Place the paper cup upside down and place the coffee filter upside down like a dress. Then put the toothpick through the middle of the bottom of the cup and then again the ball. Now place another coffee filter over the ball. Wrap a piece of the golden cord around the resulting “neck” below the ball.

First fold the third coffee filter in half. You then pommel the folded filter in the middle and tie a piece of string around it to get the two wings, which you then glue to the back of the angel. In the end, only the halo remains. To do this, form a ring from a piece of golden cord and glue it onto the angel’s head. You can now paint a face if you like.

You can continue to use your scraps of fabric by opting for this craft idea. Even smaller children won’t have any problems with handicrafts here. Use wooden clothespins as a base and, with a few other things, turn them into cute Christmas stems. When making the wooden angels, you can use any fabric, including linen and lace. You can also decorate the brackets with other decorations if you like. Again, the best way to get the halo is with a pipe cleaner. If you make the Christmas angels with children, they can then be used as Christmas tree decorations, but also as dolls for the children. You can take out the durable decorations every year and use them to decorate your home.
