Popsicle Stick Angels

Start with two thin (these will be the feet) and place them side by side – paint the tips of the shoes in gold and skin tone give a light pink.

Now you need two wide popsicle sticks (painted white) and glue them on each side of the two thin. You will want to use your third wide stick to judge distance between the two to make sure you have a glueable surface on each side to the other wide sticks, This provides a bit of dimension to form a ‘body’ and just just be flat.

Now cut one thin stick in half (these will form the arms) paint white with pink hands. Glue into position like shown in picture.

We cut glitter foam for the star her hands are holding and for the wings. We didn’t have a pattern – we just ‘winged’ it.

Now for the head – we used a two inch wood sphere (but you could get by with a wooden circle). We had to take a fine drill and drill a hole in the shere which we then epoxied a unbent paper clip into. This gave us something more to keep the head on. If you are going to use a flat circle then just glue onto the top and skip that step. The unbent paperclip gets glued to the back and reinforced with the head being glue on at the ‘neck’. The sphere/circle should have a hair pattern colored on with marker after you make it pink.

We then used a glittery pipe cleaner to place as a halo. At the top of the head we used a bead that we tied a string hanger to.

Shopping List:

Wide and thin popsicle sticks – school glue, epoxy, pink + gold + white paint, glittery pipe cleaner, silver + gold glittery foam sheets, bead, string

Of course you can mix it up with your own colors and have a wide variety of colors or color scheme to your holiday preference.

We would love to see your pics to share.
