    Cover your art area with newspaper. Put a small amount of water in a paper cup. Add drops of one color of Crayola® Washable Watercolors. To make the angel's robe, dip a tissue in it. Gently open the tissue. Lay flat to dry on paper towels. Repeat with five more tissues in colors of your choice for each angel.

    Lay two or three tissues on top of each other. Hold them together in the middle to form the angel's robe. Tie with yarn or a twist tie. Lay two tissues on top of each other. Gather them together like a bow tie. Tie in the middle with yarn to make wings.
