Craft: Coffee Filter Angels

Paper angels for kids.

Approximate Time 20 minutes

Supplies:

  • white round coffee filters
  • colored paper
  • wire
  • or silver chenille stick
    Ad
  • or scrap of foil
  • glue or glue stick
  • string yarn or ribbon
  • tape

Instructions:

Take each coffee filter individually and fold in half, then fold in half again forming triangles (careful not to straighten the pleats). Place a dab of glue on the inside corner of the second fold. Squish shut. Repeat on all three filters.

Overlap the three tips and glue together to form your body and wings as shown. Trace the bottom of either your glue stick or a roll of thread onto your construction paper for a head. Draw eyelids and a mouth. Glue your head to your coffee filter body. If you like, you can color in the pleats to make your angel multi colored.

Twist your wire, foil or chenille stick into a halo and tape to the back of your angel. Tie a loop of your string, ribbon or yarn and hook onto the wire in the back so you can hang your angel Tada, your angel is finished!

I think this is an easy fun idea for craft projects for young kids at school. I'm going to use this on my volunteer day!
