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!
