Here’s what you’ll need to make these glowing angels:
• Clear Plastic Cups
• Printer paper
• Pen
• Crayons
• Sharpie Markers
• Scissors
• Clear Tape
• LED Tea Lights (1-2 per angel)

Let’s make some paper cup angels!

Step 1:
Roll your plastic cup over a sheet of paper and trace along it’s edges as it rolls. Now you’ll have a curved shape which will fit nicely over your cup. Cut the shape out, and trim off about 1” to 1 ½” off the top (shown by the curved line) so that you’ll have space for the angel’s face.
