Free Angel Template
Christmas is a super busy time of year and it’s also a super expensive one too.
We love easy and inexpensive crafts so all the angel craft ideas that I’m shared today are ones that you can make using materials you probably already have at home rather than having to buy lots of new expensive craft materials.
Decorating your angels with any left over craft supplies you have is one of our easiest ideas and is a great way to use up anything you have rooting at the back of your supply cupboard.
To help save your time and money we’ve got two printable designs for this angel template that you can download so that you can spend more time making memories with our child and having fun together.
As well as Christmas itself this template would also be perfect for Sunday school use or in a classroom as you can print out as many copies as you like and the simple design makes them perfect for easy Christmas crafts.
As usual you’ll find lots of fun ideas below for ways that you can use your free template.

Angel Craft Ideas
Coloring – These designs can totally be used as angel coloring pages and they’re a great activity for quiet time, just grab markers or crayons and you’re ready to go. As the face area of the angel’s has been left blank too you can also design your angel’s face.
Decorate – This free printable template is perfect for kids to decorate, leave them on the paper or cut the shapes out and they’d be great for a classroom party or an activity that kids can do easily at a table. All you need to do is add some materials for them to add to their angel, think construction paper, feathers, stickers, sequins, glitter and colored paper and then add some glue for them to decorate it however they like. Either school glue or a glue stick would work for this. If you are doing this activity with a group make sure that everyone has their name on the back of their angel so that they have their own craft to take home.
Handprint angel – Using the template without wings to make our easy handprint angel craft. This would make a lovely keepsake too.
Doily wings – Use doilies cut in half to make delicate angel wings. You may find this works best if you use scissors to cut your angel shape out and then stick it and the wings onto another piece of paper using a glue stick.
Christmas ornaments – print your angel template out onto cardstock before coloring and then add a loop of ribbon onto the back of the head to make a simple angel ornament that you can hang on your tree. You could also attach your angel to a cardboard tube so it could be put on the top of a tree!
Bunting – cut out coloured in paper angels and attach them to a piece of string with a piece of tape before hanging your bunting up or make some Christmas décor by coloring and cutting out and using your angels to decorate your classroom, preschool or home , why not fix some with string to hand from the ceiling!
Suncatcher – cut out your angel outlines and place onto contact paper (sticky back plastic) cover the surrounding area with colored tissue paper or cellophane and then secure your suncatcher with another piece of contact paper.
Paint Splat – we made our paint splat angel craft without using a template but you could use this template to make sure that you have a face shape on it. Just be certain to put the paint at the start of the activity inside the area of the angel’s dress.
