Wooden Country Angel Crafts

Wooden country angels are one of the most enduring crafts. They are usable as Christmas tree ornaments or Christmas decorations. They work well in areas displaying Bible verses or in places where people like the look of a country kitchen or living room. Making these angels can be a simple child's craft or can be a project for an experienced crafter. Any number of wood-based supplies can be part of a country angel craft.


Plywood is a thin type of pressed wood, usually less than an inch thick. Cutting plywood requires a saw, but most crafters should have no problem working with this material. Plywood works well as a patterned part of an angel, such as for the wings or body. Because plywood can be painted, it can be used to make an angel more durable.

Natural Findings

Twigs, Spanish moss and other found objects in nature will make great angel craft supplies. Going out for a walk to pick up these materials should serve as an inspiration. Even for an otherwise non-wooden angel, adding twigs for the arms or halo makes the angel more suitable as a country craft.

Wooden Dowels

Dowels can form the body of an angel if she will wear a skirt. They also can be used to form the base of a halo. Because wooden dowels are inexpensive and easy to cut, they are a good choice for someone learning to make country angel crafts.

Wooden Balls

Wooden balls work well as angel heads in country angel crafts. These balls are inexpensive and available at most mass merchandiser or craft stores. You can attach them with craft glue or hot glue. They are nice enough to use without adornment but also work well if they are painted.
