From the Parent Club archives but still a great activity for kids.
This is my easy “how to make a coffee filter angel craft” for kids of all ages. I made these in minutes with the kids using art supplies we already had in the house. Simple, creative and hands-on fun for kids. This continues the Parent Club series Gifts Kids Can Make.
You will need:
2 coffee filters*
- 2 pipe cleaners
- 1 tissue
*You can use any sort of coffee filter.
Crumple the tissue into a ball and place it inside one of the coffee filters.

Layer the 2nd coffee filter over the first holding the tissue ball in place (it’s the angel’s head!).
Wrap a pipe cleaner around just under the tissue ball securing it in place. Extend the ends of the pipe cleaner (making them the arms of the angel).
Make a halo on one end of the 2nd pipe cleaner and use the other end to loop it through the 1st pipe cleaner.
Use your hands to fluff the open ends of the coffee filter (fluffing up the angel’s robes).
Voila! In minutes your can make multitudes of divine ornaments.
