I made soda can carolers when my kids were young and decided to do an updated version here. It’s a great holiday upcycle for both children and adults and I’ll show you a variety of ways to create them. All you need are some soda cans, paint and glue to create your own Soda Can Angel Carolers! (We’ve provided some printable sheet music for them to hold.)
Supplies for Retro Christmas Angels
You have a variety of choices for some items.
- Soda cans
- Paint/Sharpie Marker
- Glue (I used hot glue)
- Printouts of sheet music
- Cupcake liners
- Small paper plates
- Paper doilies
- Pipe Cleaners (We used gold)
- Fake hair
- Spanish Moss
- Wood base if desired
- Free printables below.
These angels are super simple to put together and you can use a variety of extras to fancy them up. You have to bend them carefully and slowly, just enough so they face forward but don’t tip over. It’s a good idea to practice on some plain empty cans before bending your painted ones. NOTE: The hole edges can be a bit sharp so if you’ve having children make these be extra careful.
These show a variety of things you can use to make the wings.
Halos are fun and optional as is hair.
I remember making these in the 80’s….I think I’ll have another go at it.
Thanks for the reminder’…..I’ll send you a picture of mine when I complete them!
I’d LOVE to see them when you’re done Sheila!

I love how you repurposed soda cans into angels. This is so creative and original. And they look absolutely stunning.
Love upcycled crafts and this one is inspired. I’ve been making angel wings out of shuttlecocks, I think I need now to attach them to a soda can. Thanks for the inspiration.
You’re welcome Claire. Thanks so much for visiting!
