Step 1




Fold a sheet of A4 paper into quarters, 1 sheet will make 2 angels. Cut the 4 parts out and use two for each angel.


Step 2



Accordion pleat the first half and use this as the wings. Younger children may need a bit of help with this at first but they will soon get the hang of it!



Step 3


Cut the second half in two and accordion pleat both of these. Placing the longer half horizontally, stick the shorter half vertically with Ryman Kids Craft PVA glue to the bottom to make the wings and dress.



Have fun fanning the folded paper back out into a beautiful Angel shape!


Step 4




The Pom Pom will be the head of your Angel, stick this to the top of the wings using your PVA glue. Then, using a pipe cleaner, make a loop at the end (this will be your Angels halo) and fold the rest around the neck of your Angel like a scarf.



Finished! Decorate your tree with these festive Angels, arrange them in the centre of your Christmas table or alternatively attach them to festive twine to make a great fireplace decoration the kids will love!
