My time management skills may not be the best, but my love for DIY and keeping it all super budget friendly, is totally my thing. I came up with this easy peasy and might I add, amazing DIY angel wings costume.
Take a piece of cardboard and draw a wing shape the size you want it to cover. Make one side straighter – that will be the side that is closest to the middle of your back. Make sure to have points at the bottom of your wings. Also do yourself a favor and cut one out using it as a guide to make the second. Nothing like having a matching set of wings.
Start with the first wing and get to work separating your toilet paper squares. Don’t worry if you don’t tear every single piece perfectly – the Cottonelle triple roll is so fluffy it will all look uniform when you are done.
Start one square at a time.
I highly reccomend using a crafters tacky glue. It gets sticky quick and you won’t have to wait for it to start drying to move on to the next piece.
Repeat, repeat, repeat…
Flip your wings over, take a piece of ribbon and the edge of a pair of scissors. Make two tiny holes in the middle of each wing. One close to the top and the other close to the bottom. Run the ribbon through the top hole and bottom hole.
Turn your wing over and make a knot. This will be hidden in all of the fluffy Cottonelle. Do the same for the second wing.
And your done. You have a beautiful set of wings
Now find something white to wear, I have this fun lace dress. Add a headband for the halo effect and you have an instant fabulous costume. From start to finish I invested 30 minutes and less than $5.
