This pipe cleaner angel is such a fun Christmas craft for kids and a great way to make homemade Christmas ornaments!
2sparkly silver pipe cleaners
Cross the two ends of one of the pipe cleaners to make a small X. Then twist those ends together. You should have a large circle shape.
Place one of your fingers inside the large pipe cleaner circle. Pull the pipe cleaner around your finger then twist it twice to hold it together. When you remove your finger you should have a small circle the size of your finger. This will be the angel's halo.
To make the angel's head, place your finger through the pipe cleaner right next to the first small circle. Twist the pipe cleaner around your finger twice. When you pull your finger out you should have two small circles and one larger oval shape.
Bend the top circle forward to a 90 degree angle so it sits over top of the second circle - the head - like a halo.
Bend the large oval-like shape below the head and halo into a long triangle shape. It should have two long sides and a short bottom so it looks like the angel's dress.
To make the wings, grab the second pipe cleaner and cross the two ends and twist them in place to make another large circle shape. Bring the opposite sides of the circle shape together until they meet in the middle. It should resemble a "squished" circle.
Slip the "squished" circle over the angel. Center it just under the angel's head where the "neck" would be. Twist the pipe cleaners twice, as close to the angel's "neck" as you can on both sides of the angel.
Open up the pipe cleaner wings on both sides of the angel and bend them into wing shapes. They should look like sideways hearts.
Add some string so you can hang it on the Christmas tree!
