Simple enough and they would be pretty displayed anywhere, but why buy angels? It would be easy to cut them from cardstock or pasteboard, then decorate them in various ways. Crafts like this make me look forward to decorating for Christmas, but I can't spend a lot of money on it, so I am always looking for cheaper ways to do it!
