Let’s learn how to make this Angel Coffee Filter Craft! This cute little angel can be beautifully diverse using any color of construction paper for her face, and is easy to make. Plus you can easily turn her into a princess by folding the wings smaller to be princess sleeves and adding a crown instead of a halo! We love versatile projects. Let’s get started!

Angel Coffee Filter Craft
- Full sheet of any color construction paper for your background.
- Small piece of any color construction paper for the face.
- Coffee filters.
- Markers in a variety of colors for drawing the face, hair, and halo.
- Glue. I used glitter glue so you could see it in the photos, but use any school glue.
Start by drawing a circle for your angel’s face. Cut it out, and glue it high up onto your background. Next grab a coffee filter, and fold it in half like shown.
Now fold it in half again, so you have a pizza slice shape. Glue the two flaps of the shape together, and you have an angel skirt. Now grab another coffee filter.
Fold two sides inward so they slightly overlap, and then fold the top and bottom down a bit, leaving a gap in the middle. Now take this rectangle piece and fold the bottom up 1/3rd of the way. Place some glue at the told, and fold the top down to the bottom and secure. Now flip it over and you’ll have a long rectangle. Glue it down to the paper to make your angel’s body.
Glue the finished skirt piece on top of the body. Next you’re going to fold two more coffee filters the same was as you did the skirt piece. And then just put a dot of glue on the tip of the triangle and fold it down like shown. This creates a flat spot for the wings to attach to the body.
Place some glue next to the body on either side, and glue your wings in place. Now have some fun decorating your angel’s face and hair, and give her a cute halo! I left mine white, but if you’d like you can also color in your angel’s body, wings, and skirt.
You’re all finished! I hope you enjoy making some cute angels and have fun being creative and making them your own!
