Do you have any idea how easy it is to make a Hymnbook Angel? I had seen one recently that was so cute. Then when I acquired an entire book of worn out hymnals for crafts, I was ready to try it.

I followed this video, which doesn’t use a hymnal. She uses a book, but the idea is the same, of course.

Here is my headless angel from the side. With a paperback book, you wouldn’t have the hard cover sticking out of the back like I do. But I don’t mind it that way.

Here’s the view from the top.

I had a wooden ball, probably a doll head, but it was too small.

I had something else that was just the right size– a gold glitter Christmas ornament!

I turned it upside down and placed it in. I haven’t hot glued it together yet, because I figure it may be hard to store that way.

It looks so cute with my other angel decor!

Now, there was not a “Hark the Herald Angels Sing” page that just happened to be on the left side. There was a different song there. So I tore out this page from another hymnal, folded it the same way, and tucked it into place. Perfect!

Then I decided that the wings could use a little more sparkly. So I added glitter glue.

I also added extra gold glitter to my glitter glue. With all of that wet glue, the wings tried to fold backwards, so while it was drying I propped up the wings with some supporting boxes and things.

I’m glad I added the glitter to the wings!

It was a TON of folding, and my arm got tired, but it was worth it. This angel is perfect! It is such an easy craft that young kids could do it. After the wings are finished, it is a bunch of the exact same folds. Remember to watch the video that I linked above to see how to do it.

I added another Dollar Tree metal word in front of my hymnbook angel.
