Paper Bag Angels
This paper bag craft is heavenly to do with your little angels. You can personalize the angels by choosing paper to match your child?s hair color. You can also use yarn instead of paper for the hair to give it more texture. This sweet craft can be a cute topper for your Christmas tree.
Our angels look like they are floating in the clouds with the addition of cotton balls on the bottom of the bags. You can attach ribbons to the angels to create a cute garland of floating angels for the holiday season.
