Craft materials required:

  • 1 large clothespin
  • 1 toilet roll
  • Wrapping paper or material
  • White cardboard
  • Magic Markers
  • Glitter, sequins, etc (for decoration)


1.  Cut vertical slits (a couple of inches long) along the bottom of your toilet roll.  This will help the angel to stay in place once you’ve put her on the tree.


2.  Using the toilet roll as a guide, cut a rectangle from your wrapping paper or material that is a little longer than the roll, and that will wrap around it easily.  This will be the angels dress. Then, spread glue along the inside of the top of the toilet roll (the end that hasn’t been cut) and attach the paper or material.


You may need to leave a gap at the back (otherwise, the ‘dress’ will not sit right.)


3.  Next, we will make the angels body. Use your Magic Markers to draw a face and hair on the top part of the clothespin (everything from the split down will be hidden, as you will soon see.) I’ve given mine long brown hair and bangs, just like me!



4. Attach the clothespin to the inside of your toilet roll.



5. The only thing missing now are her wings. If you’re planning on using a lot of glue or paint, it’s usually a good idea to do this part first and work on the rest of the angel while the wings dry.

Fold your cardboard in half and draw one half of the wings (a quick Google search will bring up templates for this if you’re not much of a drawer!)


6.  Cut out, unfold and decorate.


(That green blob is supposed to be a star – it’s been awhile since I’ve used glitter glue!)

7. Attach your wings to the angel’s body and voila! A beautiful angel for your Christmas tree:
