Christmas Kids Craft: Paper Plate Angel


After the success of my Paper Plate Owl, I thought to myself “How can I make a similar craft for Christmas?” I realized that two things may crafts for kids very popular:

  • Paper Plates
  • Handprints

This craft includes both! Here are the steps to make a Paper Plate Angel.

Paper Plate Angel



  • a white paper plate
  • scraps of construction paper
  • glue
  • markers, crayons, or paints


  1. Color a paper plate in whatever color you choose. This will be the angel’s body.  Paper Plate Angel step 1
  2. Fold down the right and left sides of the plates. This will make the angel’s gown. Paper Plate Angel step 2
  3. Cut a circle out of paper and draw the angel’s face. Glue this to the top of the plate. Paper Plate Angel step 3
  4. Trace your child’s hands on to paper, and cut them out. Glue the hands to the back of your angel, and it’s finished! Paper Plate Angel step 4
