You don’t need a lot of money for decorations this holiday season. You only need simple materials and a bit of creativity, and you’re ready to make beautiful decors. Start with these DIY paper angels by Craftastic. They are so fun and easy to make! You can even let kids join you on this project. Watch the video below for full instructions.
Fold the A4 paper in half crosswise and fold it again in half 3 times. Once done, open it up.
Do an accordion fold or zigzag fold following the creases already on the paper.
On the top part, draw a curve but make sure that the end of the other curve is not on the edge. Leave a small space on the edge. Draw the same on the other end.
Draw these patterns on the folded paper. See the below photo. There are 2 half-crescent shapes, then a half-circle, followed by 2 flipped half-crescent shapes. These will be on the left and right. Near the bottom draw a small triangle.
Cut the patterns. Make sure to use sharp scissors and do it carefully.
Open the paper and cut 1/3 of the length of the paper in the middle. Fold the paper back into zigzags, then fold the bottom 1/3 parts towards each side to the left and right. After that, it will be smaller, glue the bottom center together and the folded 1/3 parts. Now you have the body of the angel.
Cut a strip measuring 8.3 inches by 0.6 inches. On one end, roll it to make a small circle then glue it. Next, make 2 bigger circles and glue them on the same sides as the first one. Glue the head to the body.
get another 8.3 inches by 0.6 inches strip, and glue on the wings of the angel. Make more in different colors.
