What you will need – Coloured paper; Two small squares of white paper; Paint, Crayons or Pencils; Cardboard/Cardboard person (for head); Tinsel pipecleaner; Sticky tape; PVA glue; Gluestick; Sparkles; Googly eyes; Tissue paper.
Step 1 – Fold your coloured paper into a concertina by folding 2 cm over on one side and then turning it over and folding 2 cm on the other side and so on until it looks like a fan. Then tape the end with Sticky tape.
Step 2 – Using the two small pieces of white paper, fold them into a concertina as well and then tape the end of each one. When they are both complete, as in the picture below, tape them to the top of your large concertina with Sticky tape.
Step 3 – Using a small piece of cardboard, cut a round shape for a head but leave a long piece for the neck to make it easier to attach. You can even use a small cardboard cut-out of a person and just use the head and neck part. Stick this on to the top of your Angel, securing the neck with Sticky tape at the back.
Step 4 – Using your tissue paper, cut or tear a small piece to make hair in whatever size or colour you like. Glue this on with the gluestick.
Step 5 – Bend the Tinsel Pipecleaner round into a loop on one side to make a halo, as shown in picture. Then bend the other side around the neck of the Angel, as shown in the following picture. Fasten at the back of the Angel’s head with a piece of Sticky tape.
Step 6 – Glue the Googly eyes on with PVA glue and paint or draw the mouth on. Then add lots of Sparkles with the PVA glue.
Your Peace Angels will need a little time to dry before they are ready to sprinkle Christmas love and peace throughout your home.
and a Peaceful and Merry Christmas
to you and your families,
Darling Precious Children
