You could make your desk look more like Christmas or you could place it on top of a small Christmas tree you might have at your house.

You will need:

  • A4 card
  • Trim for the edge of the cone (use ribbon or glitter glue)
  • Pale pink cotton pipe cleaners
  • 4cm polystyrene ball
  • Black craft sand
  • Skeleton leaves
  • Glitter glue
  • Tinsel pipe cleansers
  • Googly eyes
  • PVA glue
  • Felt off cuts
  • Sticky foam pads
  • White paper
  • Plastic needle
  • Metal needle

How to make the angel:

  • Grab 2 skeleton leaves and carefully run the glitter glue around the edges. Leave them to one side.
  • Grab a plastic needle and carefully insert it into the bottom of the 4cm polystyrene ball. Use your PVA glue and carefully paint the hairline.
  • Then, carefully pour a small pile of black craft sand on a clean surface and roll the ball in it. Put the ball aside to dry.
  • Grab the card and draw a circle. Cut it out and then neatly cut the circle in half.
  • Decorate the trim of the circle with ribbon or glitter glue.
  • Starting at the bottom, carefully bend the cone into shape and hold it in place with sticky tape.
  • At the top of the cone, make two holes on either side with a metal needle.
  • Put the pink pipe cleaner through the holes.
  • Make a hole in the bottom of the head large enough to fit the point of the cone with scissors and glue in place. Leave the angel to one side.
  • To make a little book, grab some felt and paper.
  • Take a silver tinsel pipe cleaner measuring 30cm and wrap it around the angel’s neck and bend it up behind the head and crate a halo at the top. Trim any excess pipe cleaner if needed.
  • Add the googly eyes and mouth. (you can use glitter glue for the mouth, but make sure you lay the head down so the glue doesn’t run)
  • Grab the little book and glue it to the hands of the angel.
  • Grab your skeleton leaves and glue them together and place at the back of the angel with sticky foam pads.
