Make your own angel out of wood

With just a bit of cutting, hammering and glueing, you can create your own Christmas–themed work of art.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

• split log, 30-50cm long
• 150mm polystyrene ball
• sheet of white, gold or silver card measuring 50 × 70cm
pencil
scissors
• long nail
hammer
glue gun
decoration (thick gold or silver wire, strings of pearls, stars, pipe cleaners… whatever you like)

STEP 1

Draw an outline of the angel’s wings on the card, then ask a grown-up to cut out the shape.
(
Or you can also use thick wire to form the wings if you like.)

STEP 2

To attach the head, hammer the nail into one end of your log. Slide the polystyrene ball onto the nail (as shown), making sure that part of the nail stays visible – this will be your angel’s neck.

STEP 3

Once you have attached the head, use the glue gun to carefully fix the wings (either card or wire) to the back of your angel. The upper tips of the wings should be a bit higher than the top of the log when your angel is standing up.

STEP 4

Now, your angel gets a little crown. You can either braid or tie it, using silver or gold wire, strings of pearls, pipe cleaners, hay, herbs, any thing you like – be creative.

STEP 5

If you want to, you can give your wooden angel a pair of eyes, a mouth and a nose, then glue on some final bits of decoration.
