When you are a fairy, wings are the crucial component. But often the wings you find at stores look pretty cheap, not to mention they are pretty tiny! Here are some instructions on how to make your own fairy wings.
You can add glitter to the finished wings in a few ways. You can use glitter glue and add it to the edges, but we have found the easiest way is to use a spray adhesive, pour glitter on, allow to dry, and then dump excess glitter into a box. Repeat if needed.
You can also get that cool “airbrushed” look by using various colors of spray paint and spraying the wings.
Now, onto the directions!
We have found the most detailed instructions, with the wings made with wire coat hangers, here and here. There are also instructions for cardboard wings here.
If you are upcycling a previous costume, you can easily turn a princess costume into a fairy one by adding wings.
Enjoy, and send us photos of your wings!
