Peg angels

The classic peg doll is an easy project for children to make. Let them choose what colour her feathered wings will be, get them to add a halo and she’ll be a gorgeous angel to hang on the Christmas tree.

You’ll need:

  • Feathers
  • Wooden pegs
  • Strong craft glue
  • A pen
  • Paper for a dress
  • Scissors
  • Thin craft wire

Step one

Cut the stems off the feathers to just where the feathers begin.

Step two

Glue a piece of paper onto the peg in a dress shape (to get a dress shape, simply cut a piece of paper and wrap it around the peg, applying glue down one side). Glue the feathers onto the back of the peg to form wings. Use a lot of glue to ensure they stick.

Step three

Wrap some thin craft wire around the ‘neck’ and up and around again to create a halo. You can use the halo to hang the angel on the tree.

Step four

Draw on an angelic face.
