Popcan Angels

These whimsical angels

are made from recycled pop cans. Children enjoy making these and when arranged together they make a delightful display.

  1. Begin with a clean and dry popcan. Remove the tab and with the hole facing you, make an indentation just below it to tilt the top towards you.

  2. Spray the can with white spray paint. This step should be done by an adult.

  3. Children can paint the face with their choice of skin colour with acrylic paint from the dollar store. Make sure you have lots of choices of colour.

  4. While the paint is drying, children can cut out a square of paper or wrapping paper and fold it in half and then write a favourite Christmas carol on it.

  5. The song sheet can be decorated with silver or gold pens before it is glued to the front of the popcan. Children should choose all gold or all silver for the project.

  6. Next the closed eyes with lashes can be added using a fine tipped black or metallic marker.

  7. Children may need help tying a large white or glittery bow to glue onto the back of their angel.

  8. Dried moss, steel wool or rafia can be glued on the top for hair and a halo formed with a sparkly pipe cleaner or white iredescent garland.

  9. A hot glue gun works the best to keep everything well fastened to the metal.

  10. The last touch is adding some sparkle to the rest of the popcan with glitter or glitter glue.

  11. The finished project will bring a lot of smiles to the artist as well anyone who sees it.
