The Steps for How to Make the Easy Angel Crafts: Cardstock and Doily Angel:

Print the Cardstock and Doily Angel pattern.

Cut out the pattern shapes from cardstock.

If you do not have a six-inch doily, cut two of the large semicircular pattern shape out of tissue paper, wrapping paper or other thin paper.

Cardstock and Doily Angel step 1 cut out shapes

Gently fold the six-inch paper doily in half.

One of the halves forms the angel's wings.

To keep the wings from looking lopsided, fold the doily such that the ends of the folded edge are roughly the same. 

Cardstock and Doily Angel step 2 fold doily in half

Cut along the gentle fold to yield two half doilies.

Cardstock and Doily Angel step 3 cut doily in half

Center one of the doily halves over the body shape and fold the doily around the edges.

Cardstock and Doily Angel step 4 fold one doily half around body shape

Trim the doily ends from the back of the shape allowing 1/4 inch to overlap the back.

Cardstock and Doily Angel step 5 trim doily on the back

Glue the doily to the back of the body shape along the edges.

Cardstock and Doily Angel step 6 glue doily edges to back

Position and glue the two doily pieces over the arms.

Let a small portion of the arms extend for the angel's hands.

Cardstock and Doily Angel step 7 glue doily pieces over arms

Fold the doily pieces around the straight edges along the sides of each arm and glue to the back of the arm.

Trim the doily pieces along the straight end.

Cardstock and Doily Angel step 8 fold and trim doily pieces around arms

Position and glue the arms to the body shape.

Cardstock and Doily Angel step 9 glue arms to body

Cut six (6) pieces of yarn 4.5 inches long.

Cut one piece of yarn 6 inches long.

Cardstock and Doily Angel step 10 cut yarn pieces

Using the longer piece of yarn, tie the six pieces into a bundle.

Use a square or hard knot to secure the bundle of yarn.

Cardstock and Doily Angel step 11 tie yarns in a bundle

Pull the longer yarn ends, one to each side, and trim off the excess length.

Cardstock and Doily Angel step 12 trim excess yarn

Form the "hair" by separating the fibers in the strands of yarn.

Cardstock and Doily Angel step 13 separate yarn fibers

Cut two pieces of thread to tie each side of the hair.

Wrap one piece of thread 1/2 inch from the ends of the fibers on one side.

Tie the thread tightly to group the "hair."

Do the same with the second piece of thread on the opposite side.

Cardstock and Doily Angel step 14 tie yarn hair

Position and glue the head on the body.

Cardstock and Doily Angel step 15 glue head to body

Add glue to the top of the head and place the hair over the glue.

Cardstock and Doily Angel step 16 glue hair

With pens and pencil, draw the angel's face. (You can also use cosmetics for the angel's face.)

Cardstock and Doily Angel step 17 draw face

Cut a piece of thread 8-10 inches long for the hanging loop.

Cardstock and Doily Angel step 18 cut thread for hanging loop

Place a small line of glue on the back of the angel's body.

Fold the thread in half and position the cut ends of the thread into the line of glue.

Cardstock and Doily Angel step 19 glue thread for hanging loop

Add more glue to the back of the angel's body.

Center and position the remaining doily half with the straight edge along the top.

Place the "right" side of the doily over the glue such that the "right" side will be visible from the front of the angel.

Cardstock and Doily Angel step 20 glue doily half for wings

The Cardstock and Doily Angel is finished and ready to display.

Cardstock and Doily Angel step 21 hang to display

Use different colors of cardstock and yarn to make this little angel in a variety of colors.

Have fun!

The Cardstock and Doily Angel is a fast, fun and easy project for families, church groups, craft parties or senior centers.
