CHRISTMAS ANGEL ORNAMENT – Easy craft


yes one way or another we’re gonna teach
you how to make this cute little Christmas angel welcome to Wright ideas
with Susan where I put up simple tutorials to help people like you who give their
time to teach children and today it’s all about this little Christmas angel so
let’s get started. you’re gonna need some origami squares these are lovely patterned pieces of paper pipe cleaners some of these for the halos and you also
need some little hearts sequins for the mouth you’re going to need some styrofoam
balls for the head, you’re gonna need some glue stick you’re going to
need a skewer it’s very important to have a nice thick one and you’re gonna
need a texta you’re gonna need some scissors and you’re gonna need something with a little bit thicker body on it as well so I’ll show you how that works the
preparation you have to do is you actually have to prepare the head and
you have to prepare the halo and I put a hole with the skewer now it’s
really important you do a decent sized hole there because the kids have a
really hard time putting their pipe cleaners through if you don’t do a good
hole that is why I have this paintbrush because it’s a little bit thicker and so
I put this through and just push it through just to get it a little bit
wider on the inside to make it easier for the kids to be able to put their
pipe cleaner now the other thing I do is the same sort of thing with a halo I’ve
also got to make that big enough for the pipe cleaners to go through it’s very
simple so that’s what’s so good about having this skewer what I instruct the
kids to do first is they pick out their two pieces of paper older kids are
pretty good at knowing how to do the fan we fold it one way
and then you flip it the other way and then back and forth and I find that 10
year olds have no problem with that anything under 10 you might need helpers
and hopefully you have helpers when you’re doing this because it is a little
bit finicky and tricky now look at this this one has a little I’ve got a little
bit crooked so all you have to do take your scissors and just cut off that
little extra bit okay so that’ll be the wings and then this will be the dress okay so you have your wings and your dress and all you have to do now is get the kids to fold it in half and you want
them to try to meet up the ends so that they’re nice and even and then you fold
the wings in half this is gonna be my wings now the wings need to be a little
bit shorter just so it looks nicer and get the kids is to cut off about a
centimetre or two and make the wings a little bit shorter okay so you have the
wings and the dress like that now the pipe cleaner is important with the older
kids there’s no problem with these shiny ones if you’re working with younger kids
I would go for these because these will last better and they won’t all fall
apart like the shiny ones so what they do is you give them each one of these
you get them just to wrap it around once and then back again and then you get
them to just twist it like that and then put the pipe cleaners together the other
thing they need to check is that the dress is the same if it’s a little bit
uneven then they can pull it one way or pull it the other way and make it even
so you’ve got it like that and then all you do is you put the ends together you
thread the head on and this is why that hole has to be nice and big so they can
get the pipe cleaners through and not get frustrated
and then you take the halo and then you put the halo through like that and then
all they do is you can just twist it then you just take glue stick and you
just put glue right in there and you get them to squeeze it and hold it together
so it’s nice and tight and all glued together and you can do this without
arms so what you do without arms is you would just glue in here straight away
and then you would just have a little angel without arms okay so we’re gonna
do some arms so I would just get piece of a pipe cleaner just fold it slip it
up there like that they just put some glue under the arms or under the wings
and that’ll hold it in place and then you do the other wing glue there and
that will hold it in place you open up the wings like that and the
kids can put a little hymn book if they want and make a little something and put
it in the hands of the angel now for the actual face of the angel it’s very
simple I just take my little texta or my marker and just do some little eyes
the mouth all you have to do is take glue stick stick the hearts for the mouth so how did you like this little
angel? it’s pretty cute isn’t it I noticed on YouTube there wasn’t a whole
lot of Christmas crafts that relates to the Bible so I have put a few more on my
Christmas themed playlist so check that out when you have time and I had such a
good time doing this tutorial with the kids so if you liked it can you give
them a thumbs up? that would be great and if you’re new to my channel and you
