Every year I think extensively about the halloween costume I want to make. This year I was an angel & I made the wings from scratch. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out!

I started out with some thrift store knitting needles that I covered in wire & hot glue for the "frame".

Then I cut pieces of cardboard and used pieces of wire like twist-ties to kind of sew them together. After that, I took a long sleeved tshirt & cut off the sleeves & eased them over the frames. Then I glued on feathers like crazy. . .

To make them wearable, I sewed elastic sort of like backpack straps & added ribbon tabs to the bottom. . .

That's all!

Happy halloween !
