How to make

Angel Topper

Step-1

Start priming your brown paper mache by painting your angel white with acrylic paint.

Step-2

Once paint is dry, decopatch the neck and the bottom of its skirt in the snowflake Decomache paper.

Step-3

Make 9 cones from the snowflake Decomache paper. Start by cutting 1 sheet of Decomache paper into 6 equal squares, then roll each square from corner to corner, making sure you have a point at the top and bottom of your cone.

Step-4

Secure the edge with Decopaper glue. Once dry, glue in place on the body of the angel, making the first at the front/middle of the body and placing the others each side.

Step-5

Cover the wings in PVA Glue and sprinkle silver glitter all over on both sides. Shake off the excess glitter.

Step-6

To neaten up the raw edges of the paper, glue a piece of ribbon round her neck.

Step-7

Use a pipe cleaner to create a halo, overlapping the ends slightly in a circle shape.

Step-8

Finish her head with a black felt tip, drawing two eyelids and using some light pink acrylic paint give her some rosy cheeks.

Star Topper

Step-1

Start by preparing a base colour – paint the topper all over with a coat of white paint. If necessary, add a second coat. Leave to dry.

Step-2

Paint the topper with glue, then shake on some glitter. Start at the top and work your way down in small sections so the glue doesn’t dry.

Step-3

Shake off excess glitter. Add a second coat of glitter if necessary.

Step-4

To keep the glitter from shedding, paint a layer of glue or hairspray over the top.
