Christmas is one of those holidays that means lots of sweets and treats to pass around. For Halloween, another candy-centric holiday, we created these adorable tissue paper ghosts. Because those ghosts were so popular, we were inspired to create a Christmas version that you could craft up with your favorite little ones. We love 15-minute projects like this because we know they will keep the kids entertained the whole way through. Grab some lollipops and tissue paper and let’s make some tissue paper angels!
Download our printable instructions for a full list of materials to make these tissue paper angels. We used the frosted white tissue from our Americana tissue pack, but you should be able to use any tissue paper that you find at the store. Start by printing the PDF below with all the sweet angel faces. Cut out the faces you’d like to use, plus use the circle and wings template for cutting your tissue paper. Follow the step-by-step photo tutorial to help you create your tissue paper angels! Simply wrap the tissue around the lollipops and secure with some white organza ribbon.
Next, bend your silver wire (you could also use gold or copper!) to form the halo and arms of the angels. Use hot glue to assemble everything together and add the facial details last. Easy! To finish off our tissue paper angels, we wrapped some pretty gold washi tape around the sticks. This is totally optional, but you should be able to find a nice washi selection at your local craft store. When you’re done, you can use them as stocking stuffers or party favors. We love the idea of teachers giving these cute angels out to their students!
