ok first off, i fracken loooooove fairies. i had a great time making these. it is really easy. just make sure you really tie them together well. take your time with it and they will be some of the most sturdy wings you've sported. they stay up much better then the mass made ones do and there is no elastic to cut the circulation of both your arms off, just beautiful ribbon.
four hangers that are of the exact measurements.
2 pairs of old tights. use to different colors if you want
2 and a half inch ribbon or just a bunch of smaller ones
water based glue
a little glitter
an old paint brush
a pair of pliers
and your scissors
Step 1: Undoing the Hangers
- please be careful when working with hangers. make sure to hold them firmly when bending. or maybe you want to be a cyclopes for halloween. no seriously use caution.
Make the hanger as straight as possible. it helps to use a thick pair of pliers. there will be a little bit of curl at the ends where you took the hanger apart but on one end the curl is up higher. try to work the curl out of the one that is higher but it doesn't have to be perfect. the other end doesn't matter cause it won't be in the wing body.
