  • Yarn or string for hanging (10 to 12 inches)
  • Glue
  • Hole punch
  • Ruler

Christmas Angel Ornament materials and tools

 

The Steps for How to Make the Easy Angel Crafts: Christmas Angel Ornament:

Print the two pages of the Christmas Angel Ornament pattern.

Cut the shapes from your chosen paper:

2 wings
3 body shapes
2 arms
1 halo
1 face
1 background

Remember to hold the scissors and feed the paper into the cutting blades with the other hand. This insures a more evenly cut edge.

I'm right handed. I lock my right elbow next to my side to remind myself not to move the scissors. 

Christmas Angel Ornament step 1 cut shapes

Use the shape on the pattern to determine how the wing shapes should overlap.

Glue the overlapped area first.

Then, glue the wings to the background. 

Use the ruler to help position the wings from the edges of the background.

Christmas Angel Ornament step 2 glue wings to background

Next, use the pattern shape to identify how to overlap one body rectangle over each arm rectangle. 

Glue the overlapped area together.

Christmas Angel Ornament step 3 glue arms behind outer robe

Next, position the remaining body rectangle over the two sides using the pattern as a guide.

Glue the pieces together where they overlap. 

Christmas Angel Ornament step 4 glue body together

Glue the body shape over the wings on the background.

The bottom edges on each side rectangle should match the bottom edges of the wings.

Christmas Angel Ornament step 5 glue body over wings

Glue the face over the halo.

Christmas Angel Ornament step 6 glue face over halo

Glue the face and halo over the wings and body shape. 

Christmas Angel Ornament step 7 glue face over body

Punch holes in the background shape 1 inch from the side and 3/4 inch from the top.

Thread the yarn through the holes from the front to the back.

Tie a knot in the ends of the yarn. 

Christmas Angel Ornament step 8 add holes and yarn

Hang the pretty little Christmas Angel Ornament on a wall, a door knob, a cabinet pull or where you want to see an angel. 

Christmas Angel Ornament step 9 hang to display

For a different Christmas Angel Ornament, this next version uses Christmas scrapbook paper for the wings and body with green card stock for the background. A construction paper face and a gold wrapping paper halo completes the angel. Red yarn forms the hanging loop.

Christmas Angel Ornament red, green and gold on display

This little angel would also be pretty made with ribbon. The wings need 2 1/4 inch wide ribbon, the body shapes need 1 1/4 inch width and the arms need 1 inch wide ribbon.

Use the Christmas Angel Ornament Pattern to determine the lengths and placement of the ribbons.

Whether made with paper or with ribbon, this Easy Angel Crafts Christmas Angel Ornament can be made quickly and inexpensively.

Have fun!

This Christmas Angel Ornament provides fun for children and adults and offers a fun project for church groups and senior centers too.
