DIY Easter Craft: Baby Angels

Baby Angels Post Intro Image

Just in time for Easter! These adorable baby angels stand on their own so they make great Easter decorations. Set them around your Easter table or use them as place settings. You can also add them to your Easter baskets this year for a personal touch.

And the bonus–they are the perfect Easter craft for kids or even toddlers!

Baby Angels Materials

Step 1: Cut Angels

Cut two angels out with a cutting machine or by hand. You will get a smoother cut with a machine but as I’ve said before, hand-cutting works too. You will need two of the same angel cut-out.

Step 2: Apply glue

Apply glue to one angel. Make sure you get right to the edges. If you use my cut files, I’ve included a PDF that shows you the area where glue should go. Basically avoid putting glue on the wings and leg area, which is designated by the dotted cut lines.

Step 3: Align and put two angel cut-outs together

Once your glue is applied, take your second angel and stick it on top. At this point I like to take the angel into my hands and make the necessary adjustments to get them both aligned. If you’re using white glue it should still be wet enough to slide and adjust the paper around. It dries pretty fast though so try to do this quickly.

Step 4: Open wings and legs

Open the wings and legs along the dotted lines. Just a side note: I like to let my angels dry between wax paper and underneath heavy books before opening them up. You end up with a flatter body this way since the glue will sometimes warp the angel’s body if you let it dry freely. I’ve done both methods and the warping is not extreme so either way will work.
