Paint the foam ball with hair and a face with Acrylic Paint. We made our angel with brown hair and closed eyes, as if she was praying. Tip: use different sized paint brushes for larger areas and smaller ones detailed areas.

Lay down your paper plate so that the outside edge is facing up. Use craft glue to adhere gold Glitter Sticks to the edge of the wings. Trim any excess Glitter Stick material.  Tip: use paper clips to hold down the stick in position as it dries.
