Make your own paper plate angel tree topper

A homemade angel on the top of the tree is somehow the most Christmassy thing of all. You can get the kids to decorate the paper plate before making the angel together so she sparkles and shines, just as an angel should!

What you need:

  • paper dinner plate
  • scissors
  • decorative scissors
  • scalpel
  • pencil
  • pipe cleaner
  • sticky tape
  • stapler
  • chopping board
  •  black marker to draw on the face

Number of players:


Step 2. Use your fancy-pants decorative scissors to trim the edge off the plate to make the wings and dress a little prettier.

Step 3. Print out our template, cut it out and use it to trace onto the paper plate.

Step 4. Cut out the outline and use your scalpel to cut the line within the wing.

Step 5. Turn the plate over so the rounded lip of the plate is facing away from you and bend the sides around to the back, using the cut edges of the dress as your natural guide.

Step 6. Place one wing through the slit on the other side as far as it will go.

Step 7. Staple in place to secure.

Step 8. Bend one end of the pipe cleaner around your finger and twist into place.

Step 9. Cut off the end and tape in place on the back of the head. Draw on a face and place on top of the tree
