A friend and I decided to make fairy wings the other day and I wanted to share the cuteness! We used Emilie Autumn’s tutorial which I’ll post at the bottom. We found the supplies at Lowe’s, Michael’s and Walgreens (.50 cent tights work wonders!). I love the way they turned out. I don’t have a picture of hers yet so I’ll just share mine for now. They turned out the perfect size too which I was surprised because I didn’t really think about size when I was making them.
This is when I was using acrylic paint to paint all the pretty designs on the wings. It took a couple layers because the tghts were loosely woven but turned out really pretty.
Details of the holes burned with incense. This s before more layers of paint were added so you can see how multiple layers
Before adding ribbons, extra glitter, and sewing on flower and leaves.
The finished wings! I used elastic to hold th wings on instead of the ribbon suggested for comfort purposes and highly recommend it. I love the glitter ribbon and how it matches the glitter outline! Very little came on one spool though >.< Here's the video in case you want to make your own.
