Beautiful Christmas Angel Ornament

Beautiful Christmas Angel Craft

Beautiful Christmas Angel Ornament

We are making this ornament at our Happy Birthday Jesus party.  It is beautiful hanging on the tree and a great craft for children ages 5 years (with a little help) through 6th grade (or older).  

  • Start with Jingle Bell and thread brown string through to make a hanger. (see pictures below to see the steps)
  • Tie string at the top by holding both ends together then looping around and through; pull tight.
  • Take a white or red pip cleaner and insert it into one side of the bell straight across and out the other side.
  • Center the bell in the middle of the pipe cleaner then pull the two sides down and tug gently to bring pipe cleaner to the bottom of the bell.
  • Make a twist just below the bell to hold the pipe cleaner in place
  • About one third of the way down the pipe cleaner, make a fold bringing the bottom of the pipe cleaner back up towards the angel’s head.
  • Repeat with other side and then twist them at the fold to lock together.
  • These will be the angels arms, but first…
  • Fold the gold pipe cleaner in half
  • Take one of the bottoms and bring it back up to the middle fold to make a loop on one side.
  • Wrap the bottom around the middle of the pipe cleaner to lock it in place
  • Repeat with the other side
  • Now you have two loops which are Angel Wings.
  • Thread Angel wings through the middle of the Angel’s Body
  • Now wrap the Angel’s arms around the middle of the wings and then around to make an arm on each side.
  • Using two feathers about the same length, push them into the bell on top of the Angel’s Arms & Wings
