Introduction: Dog Wings

This is my dog Cosmo. I decided this year for Halloween I wanted Cosmo to be something that was black to match his coat. I didn't know exactly what he was going to be but I knew I wanted wings. So I decided just to decide when we were finished. So he's either a bat or a dragon or maybe a Thestral. Let me know what you think.

Step 1: Supplies

Thick Wire

Pliers/Wire Cutters

Clay or Model Magic

Spray Paint (Black and Brown)

A lot of Hot Glue

Mod Podge or White Glue

Black Paint

Black Electrical Tape

Zip Ties


Sheer Fabric (Black and Green)

Nylon Straps


Foam Sheets

Step 2: Getting the Form and Bones

We started off by figuring out the size and shape that would be best for Cosmo. Once the form was made we reinforced the bottom. Then tried to make the other one the same.

Then we lined up where the bones should be and hot glued them in place. At first we weren't sure whether hot glue would be the best choice but it held on and none of them have moved. After both were done we covered them with electrical tape. This part could've been skipped but we didn't want to risk any silver to shine through.

After that we attached the wings together with wire.

Step 3: Veins and Spikes

We created the spikes out of model magic. I was a fast and easy option. In addition to that, it is light that clay.

With the veins, we used a combination of hot glue and string. After that we spray painted the veins brown and the spikes black.

Step 4: Covering and Attaching

We covered both wings with a layer of the green sheer fabric. Once that was on we coated them with a layer of white glue. After that dried we mixed black paint with a little bit of mod podge and put down another coat.

After that was dry we wrapped the wire with some foam sheets so it was more comfortable for him. Then we attached the nylon strips and velcro then finally wrapped it in black fabric.

Step 5: Get Him to Wear It
