Toilet roll angels

Have a plethora of toilet rolls in your house? We seem to go through lots so are always on the look out for some crafts to help use them up. Our latest one is very seasonal – toilet roll angels!

painting toilet rollsThe great thing about toilet roll crafts isΒ  that they come together really easily. The first step was to paint them silver and when they were dry we added a face. We drew around both children’s hands on to white paper, then cut them out and sellotaped them to the back of the toilet roll. We added a small halo from a pipe cleaner too.

What do you think? I’m quite proud of them!

    They are lovely. I don’t think you can beat crafts such as these because they keep that moment in time that cannot be given back (with the hands).
