1 Use the angel template to cut the shape out of the Rains Watercolour Paper.

2 Using a black pen, draw a line around the outside of the angel shape. Draw lines around the bottom of her dress, collar, wings, fingers and hair to help define her shape.

3 Next using your watercolour paints, together with a wet brush, add some colour and patterns to your angel’s dress and wings; lines, dots, circles or even stars for a decorative finish!

4 To make your angel stand out, add some colour for her skin, hair and star with as many colours as you like.

5 Allow some time for the paint to dry. Once the angels are dry punch a hole at the top of the paper, thread ribbon through the hole and tie it in a knot – your angel is now ready to be displayed!
  • Once your angel has dried, use a marker to write a note on the back of the paper.  This can make a great card for family or friends.
  • Leaving a white border around the angel when cutting out the decorations makes your design stand out.
  • Join multiple angels together into a chain to hang from door handles or your window sill.
