7. Staple the triangle body shape onto the wing shape as shown.

8. Staple the head shape onto the body & wings shapes, overlapping the first staple slightly to hide it.

You could staple the paper plate angel pieces together before you spray paint it.

Preschoolers could use a brush to paint the paper plate pieces, instead of spray painting.

The head could be made from any card stock or cardboard, since you will be painting it.

You could leave the angel white and use clear glitter for sparkle.
