You're in need of wings for...things! Like for wearing on your shoes, or your wrists, or maybe in your hair. This is an instructables on how I made some cheap-and-easy wings for my friend Oliver who wanted to go as his comic-book character, The Scout, for Halloween.

You will need:

- 2 8.5x11 craft foam sheets (get 'em at the dollar store)
- Mod Podge (or your other sealer of choice)
- Empty and clean large vinegar or milk container (or any large plastic container)
- Scissors
- Clamshell scissors (or exact-o knife and cutting board)
- Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- White Pleather
- Weldbond (or other white glue of your choice)
- thin paintbrush
- Black Acrylic/Craft Paint

- Optional: Needle, Thread, Thimble (or sewing machine)

Step 2: Seal Your Craft Foam

Cover your craft foam sheets with 4 coats of Mod Podge, letting the sheets dry between coats. Do one side, then the other - and you will also need to do the bare edge too (after cutting out the wings). You can also choose to cut out your wings first, then coat them completely.
