Here's how to create Angels from Popsicle Sticks:
To begin the Dollar Tree Christmas Craft Stick Angels, gather all supplies. To create the Angel body, measure and cut one inch from the end of two jumbo craft sticks with scissors. Keeping the cut edges at the top, create an upside-down “V” shape on your work surface. Line up one full jumbo craft stick in between the “V” and attach it with a glue gun and glue sticks. You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you will have to wait for it to dry.
Measure and cut two regular craft sticks in half. Two of the halves will become the Angels' legs and feet. Lay the other two half-craft sticks along the body of the Angels to become the arms and hands. Trace the edge of Angel's body onto the arm with a pencil, and then trim away the excess with scissors. Attach the two legs to the back of the Angel and the two arms to the front of the Angel with a glue gun and glue sticks.
Paint the Angels dress with white acrylic craft paint. Paint the Angels hair with yellow and brown acrylic craft paint. Paint the Angels' feet with black acrylic craft paint. Using the eraser from a new pencil, dot pink cheeks on either side of the Angels face. Set aside to dry and apply a second coat, if necessary. For this project, leave the Angels' faces, legs, and hands the natural wood tone, or paint them the flesh tone color of your choice. I love my Americana Acrylics from DecoArt because they have one-coat coverage on most surfaces.
Add two eyes to each Angel with the MONO Twin Permanent Marker. The MONO Twin is a versatile marker to craft with because it has a larger bullet tip and an extra fine tip, which makes it perfect for all types of applications. To create the halo, measure and cut a two-inch length of skinny gold ribbon, and glue the ends together to make a loop. Attach the loops to the back of the Angels' heads with a glue gun and glue sticks. You can also use a gold tinsel chenille stem for the halo.

Cut out the wings with scissors, making sure to cut inside the traced lines for a clean, finished project. Attach the wings to the back of the Angel with a glue gun and glue sticks.
Outline the Angel wings with iridescent glitter glue. Using the photo as a guide, create a decorative border at the cuffs and hem of the Angels' dresses with gold glitter glue. Set aside to dry. To create the wreath, cut a faux pine chenille stem in half with scissors. Bend each piece of the pine stem into a circle, twisting at the ends to secure. Attach the pine wreaths to the Angels' hands with a glue gun and glue sticks. Tie baker's twine in bows and glue them to the top center of the wreaths.
