Handprint and Footprint Angel Craft
(with poem)

To see a copy of the finished craft check out the Fan Art.  Thanks to Nikki for sending it in!!

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!)

This little angel is special you see;
Because she is a part of me.
Her wings are my hands,
Her body my feet,
And on the tree she'll look very sweet.

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.
