Christmas Angel and Star Crafts

Simple Star Wreath
Bring the spirit of Christmas to your home this holiday season with handmade Christmas angel and star crafts. From ornaments to gift tags, these Christmas crafts will add festive flair to your holiday.

Paper Star Gift Tag

Spice up simple gift wrapping with this easy silver star. The sparkly gift tag can also be used as a tree topper! Cut out the star (the free pattern appears, below) from thick scrapbook paper and add a tinsel embellishment inside. Tape two lengths of ribbon behind the star to add interest.

Sparkling Silver Star Ornaments

Vintage Christmas bulb protectors, available at flea markets, make beautiful homemade Christmas ornaments. Hot-glue beads or costume jewelry over the bulb opening and then punch a hole at the top for a hanger to make this star craft.

Angel Plate Display

Make an angelic grouping of pretty plates by simply printing off black-and-white images of angels from the Internet. Cut out the pictures and decoupage them to the front of the plates, smoothing the paper to remove air bubbles; let dry.

Bright Star Ornament

Decorate your window or tree with this delicate star ornament craft. Cut the simple shapes from felted wool and embellish with white rayon and metallic embroidery flosses, pearl beads, and crystal accents. Vary the sizes and colors of your ornaments for a pretty display.

Angel Cookie Ornament

Use basic kitchen supplies to make this pretty Christmas craft. Mix 1 cup cornstarch, 2 cups baking soda, and 1 1/2 cup water together in a large pot until smooth. Cover and cook over medium heat until mix is the consistency of dry mashed potatoes; turn off heat. When cool, roll out and cut with an angel cookie cutter. Use a toothpick to make a hole in one of the wings. Bake at 250 degrees until hard. Use icing to decorate. Hang with a string or ribbon for a delicate angel ornament.

Jewel Star Ornament

Bring individuality back into the holidays with these wintry star ornaments. Fun fabric, ribbon, and beads make these Chritmas star ornaments special.

Christmas Angel Craft

They may look like iron sculptures, but this lighter-than-air pair actually is constructed from plastic-foam material that's richly arrayed with a painted-on patina and faux-rust finish. Old costume jewelry, buttons, and other metal motifs create their heavenly ornamentation of these Christmas crafts.

Cookie Cutter Star Ornament

Cookie cutters in two sizes team up for a superstar ornament. Dangle the smaller cutter from cording tacked with hot glue from the star top. Trim the edge with contrasting cording and top with a floppy bow.

Candlelight Angel Craft

The Christmas blessing is conveyed in a gold painted and cut-paper altarpiece that glows warmly in the candlelight. Add a hint of extra ethereal flair to this angel craft by decorating your candle with gold paint.

Simple Star Wreath

Dress up a plain evergreen wreath by attaching a big silver star to the center using floral wire. Find the star at retail store or make your own by painting a wooden star form. Tie berry sprigs and pinecones to the wreath using floral wire for seasonal color.
