After cutting out both pieces, overlap head and halo as shown and glue. Add facial features with paint, glitter glue, markers, or colored pencil. When the face is dry, you may also brush the exposed portion of the halo with a thin layer of glue and sprinkle with sugar or salt to add a sparkle.

This is the main body of the angel. Cut it out of white paper. Decorate with paint, glitter glue, markers, colored pencils, etc.

Glue head and halo to the top of the body. Head and halo should overlap body by 1/4 inch or so, with head/halo combination being on top of the body. You may punch a hole near the top of the halo and thread a string through so that you can hang your angel on a Christmas tree. Allow angel to dry before attaching wings.

Cut wings out of yellow paper. Spread with thin layer of glue, then sprinkle with glitter, sugar, or salt if desired. After wings have dried, fold them back about half way on the two lines shown. Spread glue on the flat gray center section. Stick to back of angel.
