Welcome to another Wacky Wednesday project – making angels.
Angels play an important role in our celebrations of Christmas and are often seen topping trees.
Soon after people first started decorating Christmas trees they started pretending that the angels had done the decorating, to make Christmas more exciting for children. They strung streamers around the tree claiming they were bits of angel hair. Later tinsel was made and became a more popular version of “angel hair”.
Angels are considered a symbol of love and protection and these days come in all shapes and sizes. Some can glow, sing, dance, talk and even play the trumpet.
Our little craft angels are not so sophisticated, but they are really sweet and easy to make – and cost virtually nothing.
