How to make Angie, the wooden spoon angel

Angie, with her glittering halo and wings, is the angel on top of our Christmas tree. With just a sprinkling of magic reindeer dust your kids can turn a simple wooden spoon into their very own Christmas tree angel, just like Angie.

If you’re anything like us, you’ve got a spare wooden spoon or two in your kitchen drawer just collecting dust. Give one to your child and let them transform it into a heavenly Christmas craft using paint, felt, sparkly pipe cleaners and loads of glitter. They’ll be busy for hours! You might even have enough time to do a spot of Christmas baking. Just make sure you have one wooden spoon left for yourself.

Scroll down for our brilliant step-by-step guide on how to make a wooden spoon angel.

Age group: Kids as young as five can get involved in making Angie the angel – they will just need help cutting out shapes for her felt sleeves, praying hands and paper-plate wings.
