Introduction: Duct Tape Angel Wings

About: Ever since I was a kid I was obsessed with making interesting crafts, usually small stuffed animal and dolls and crappy beaded jewelry. Now, I'm still an obsessive crafter who makes up her own patterns, only...

This is one wing of a pair of angel wings I made awhile back. The whole pair used 1 1/2 rolls of duct tape, 2 coat-hangers, and some reeds for basket making as a frame. The whole wing measures out to about 3ft long.  
I later attached both wings to a harness I put together made with hardware cloth, foam, and a belt for my Halloween costume, though unfortunately I never got around to taking pictures of the finished project. 
It was a huge hit, though I did have to make sure not to hit people in the face when I turned around too fast!

    thanks! I still need to find a pic of them being worn, and my notes, then I can get around to making a step by step instructable:)

    Any chance a tutorial of these will be going up? They look perfect for my Halloween costume idea.

    These are awesome! I don't suppose you have a tutorial up anywhere as of yet? I'd love to know how you did the feathers :D

    Ooh yay! I will look forward to it! :D

    Are you going to post a pic of you wearing them so we can see them on a person? They look awsome!
