Angel Costume – Halo Tutorial

When they were younger, my kids once needed angel costumes on two different occasions. (What are the odds, right?!) I needed this Angel Costume Halo Tutorial, but I didn’t have one.

I was short on inspiration and didn’t really know how to get started. But then I was wandering the aisles around the holidays, I came across this gold tinsel garland, and the lights clicked on! Thus, the Angel Costume Halo was born!


(my links are from amazon- but feel free to browse your local store for these items! Like I said, I was walking through the store when I saw these supplies!)

Gold tinsel garland (about 5 feet per halo)
Craft pipe cleaners (need 2 per halo)
Headbands (I used white, but sparkled would be so cute too)

Wrap one pipe cleaner around the headband, starting in the center. I think I wrapped mine around two or three times on each side.


Make a circle out of the other pipe cleaner and twist the ends together.


Place the two prongs of the pipe cleaner through the center of the circle until they are about 1 – 1.5″ high, and then wrap the excess around the circle to attach.


Wrap the garland around the circle until it is filled in and no white is showing. I found it was easiest to use about 1.5′ pieces at a time, and I think I used about 3. It has a very small wire in it, so it stays attached on its own. You don’t even need glue for this one! Easy peasy. 😉

More Christmas Crafts?! I’ve got them!

  1. Great idea! Not sure when I personally will need a halo though. I have two boys 17 and 27. Maybe someday a grand daughter will need one!

    1. I'm glad you like them! I was actually just looking at them today as I cleaned up the play room, and I'm surprised how well they've held up considering it's been almost 1.5 years, and they moved across an ocean! Ha!! 🙂
