 Yesterday I told you about how we spent several days stuck in our house because of “icemageddon 2013″ and we went a little craft-crazy.  We made these cute paper plate wreaths:

… and also used paper plates to make angels!  We have been reading the Christmas story a lot and talking about how the angel told Mary that she would have a son named Jesus, and then the angels told the shepherds that their Savior had been born, so I thought it would be fun to make our own angels while talking about the angels in the Christmas story.

Materials:

paper plate

markers

scissors

glue

pipe-cleaner

googly eyes

stickers, glitter, or whatever you want to use to decorate your angel.

These are inspired by some I saw on Pinterest from Nurture Store.

1.  Draw the angel pattern on the plate.

4. Roll the corners of the skirt around to the back and glue or staple it together.  I used hot glue for this part and also to glue on the halo.

If you want the angel to be free-standing you can use some sticky-tack to help it stand up, or you can trim a little bit off the front edge of the plate, or just prop it up against the wall.  These also make great Christmas tree toppers!
