Paper-Plate Angels

Perfect for a children's table, these demure angels are made with 6-inch plain white paper plates.

  • White paper plates

  • Utility knife

  • Decorative hole punches


  1. Trace a paper angel shape onto a plate with a fluted edge, and cut out with a utility knife. The two cuts for the wings are different, one made from inside out, the other from outside in. Embellish the edge of the plate with one or two decorative hole punches.

  2. With the angel facing you, shape her skirt into a circle; slide the outside cut over the inside one to make wings. Curl some paper around a narrow rod, such as a skewer, and make a name card. Secure it in her hands with a dab from a glue stick.
