Coffee Filter Christmas Angels

Aren’t these angel ornaments cute? I absolutely love the glitter glue decorating their gowns. This Christmas activity is great for elementary aged children with supervision.

It’s also a great Christmas craft for adults.

Younger children can help with decorating the angel dresses and faces, but will need adult assistance to put them together.

While I recommend using hot glue, you may try using tacky craft glue. Hot glue will make the angel ornaments more durable and dries a lot quicker.

These angels look gorgeous with and without faces, so it is up to you if you’d like to add facial features. I think the closed eyes and open singing mouth adds a special touch to their look.

How to Make Coffee Filter Angel Ornaments

First, flatten your round coffee filters, then fold them in half once and then fold them in half again.

Apply gold glitter glue in a scalloped pattern following the embossed edges of the coffee filter. Set aside to dry.

After the glitter glue has dried, it’s time to start assembling the angel. Fold the point of the coffee filter, apply glue with glue gun and then insert into the wooden bead.

To create the wings, lay gold tinsel chenille stem down on a ruler (these are twelve inches long). Bring one end into the six-inch mark and twist end to secure. 

Using ruler to measure and create angel wings with gold chenille stems.

Bring the other end to the center and twist to secure. Flip angel over and glue the wings directly under the wooden bead head.

To create a face,  use a fine tip permanent marker to draw the closed eyes and singing mouth. Apply light pink paint with a cotton swab to highlight the angel’s cheeks.

To finish, attach a loop of ribbon to the halo to hang it up. Wouldn’t she look darling on your Christmas tree?
