Hello, dear readers! I hope you're having a great week. I just finished putting together my fairy costume, and I'm really excited about it. I'll post pictures of the whole costume soon!

I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to make beautiful fairy wings. And for less than $4!

Here's what you need:

  • 4 wire hangers
  • 2 pairs of cheap nylon socks (you know, the kind that come in those little plastic eggs for like 30 cents each)
  • twine or strong string
  • masking tape
  • small piece of cardboard
  • several feet of ribbon (for tying the wings onto yourself)
  • paint, glitter/glue, silk flowers, decorations, etc. 
  • pliers 
  • scissors

Like I said, I spent less than $4 on these wings: 30 cents each for 2 pairs of nylon socks (Wal-Mart, but you can get them at Walgreens, too), and $3 for the hydrangea (also Wal-Mart).

With the help of the pliers, untwist and straighten out each of the hangers. Now bend the hangers into wing shapes. Take the top and bottom of one wing, put the corners together, and tie tightly with twine. (If you have ends of hangers poking out of the outline of the shape, you may want to wrap the end with masking tape so it doesn't poke a hole in the nylons.) Next, pull one nylon sock onto each the top and the bottom hanger. Tie at the bottom (like you would tie a garbage bag). Repeat steps with the other wing.

Now put the two wings together, and wrap the center connecting point with twine at every angle. Wrap well until the wings feel secure. You can use masking tape for extra reinforcement.

Now, to reinforce the center of the wings (and to give you a place to mount flowers and other decorations), cut two small cardboard rectangles, one for the front and one for the back. Attach them with masking tape, like this:

Next, cut two very long pieces of ribbon, and tie each around the new cardboard center. The knots should be on the back, and the ribbon should hang down evenly. You'll use these ribbons to tie the wings around your arms.

Now it's up to you to make them beautiful! Use acrylic paint, spray paint, glitter, flowers, rhinestones, and other fairy things. I glitter-fied mine by painting on ModPodge.

Voila! Happy fairy-ing!

For a video tutorial with a similar process, here's a great video from Threadbanger:

    The tyre loses contact with the road and so loses traction. When this happens to the driving wheels, the tyres are able to spin much more freely than they would if they were gripping the road and pulling the car along, so the wheels spin more quickly. (Of course the car itself doesn't speed up, because the wheels are just spinning on the water.) Now, when the wheels turn faster the cruise control interprets this as the car going faster; (the faster a car goes, the faster the wheels turn, right)..
