This Christmas angel has a footprint body and two handprint wings. Use a heavy paper, craft foam or posterboard for a longer lasting version.
The craft is made with paper, some crayons, scissors, string and glue. You will also need a (fairly big) photo of the child or a picture from a magazine (you could even use a teddy bear head for a teddy angel).
Unusual for me, there is no template for this particular craft (but it's
terribly cute, even without one!)

I wanted to share this.....at Christmas, we did the angel foot prints and handprints. I also, used my scanner and enlarged the kids faces, so that each angel looked like the child. I used a gold glitter pipe cleaner and taped it to the back, leaving enough at the top to make a halo. The parents LOVED it!!! I guess for a brief moment, they can look upon this craft and honestly say "look at my little angel" teeeheee....
Heather, one of our viewers, shared her comments:
Instead of each making their own: I used the eldest child's foot for
the body, and two different shades of yellow for the 3 little hand
prints. It gave the angel's wings a wonderful 3d look.
On the tag, I changed the wording from 'I' to 'we'. Then in parenthesis I put their names and the hand or foot that was theirs. (ie. Noah-foot, Alec-hand, etc.) I also burned the edges of each tag, to give it a neat look. I had to put a self adhesive magnet on each wing, as it was too heavy for just one.
Take a minute to fill in our short survey.
