This beautiful Rolled Paper Angel Craft is such an easy Christmas craft, you can literally make a harmonic host of angels with many different colors and many different halos, all in less than 15 minutes.
Personally, I’ve always been absolutely fascinated with angels. As such, one of my favorite parts about Christmas is being able to decorate my house in all things angelic and it’s all a part of the season. We’ve done a number of angel crafts, too, like our Folded Paper Angels, Glitter Clothespin Angels, and this darling Bottle Cap Angels Craft.
For our Rolled Paper Angel Craft you will need cardstock in a variety of colors as well as white paper, shiny pipe cleaners, a white and black marker, glue stick, and scissors. Easy peasy and each one can be made in less than 5 minutes!
Rolled Paper Angel Craft
- Cardstock, variety of colors
- White paper
- Shiny pipe cleaners
- Black sharpie
- White marker
- Glue stick
Start by cutting 3 pieces from the white paper.
Cutting from the width of a single sheet of white paper, you will need a wide strip, a smaller strip, and a circle from the paper remaining.
Fold the circle piece in half. Cut a scalloped edge around the unfolded edges. Then cut in half.
Glue the two half circles in the middle of a full sheet of colored cardstock.
Now, roll the wider strip for the body. Glue closed.
Glue the body piece vertically on top of the wings.
Draw a simple face in the middle of smaller strip.
Roll up. Cut away any excess so as not to cover the face. Glue closed.
Cut a pipe cleaner in roughly thirds. Make a loop on end of the pipe cleaner. Bend the pipe cleaner down from the loop.
Apply glue to the area where the face and halo will be positioned. With the halo in position, press the face piece horizontally into the glue on top of the pipe cleaner, securing in place.
Finish by drawing stars around the angel with the white marker.
Aren’t they stunning? And they really are such a simple Christmas craft, too. For more fun ideas, be sure to check all of our Christmas crafts at Our Kid Things!
