    Draw an angel using shape stencils or templates. Pencil in a small circle for the angel's head. Make a large isosceles triangle under the head to represent the angel's robe. Place one smaller isosceles triangle stencil at each side of the robe for the angel's wings. Draw a small oval above the head for the halo. Embellish your angel as desired.
