Sophie is going to be the Christmas Fairy in the nursery show this year - a big role, as you can imagine. So Sunday morning finds me with some tights, wire hangers and the glue gun - here is how I made her wings:
two wire hangers
needle & thread
I started by shaping my hangers, then using pliers, I twisted the handles together.
I covered the know of wires with a square of felt - sewing the tube shut.
I cut the tights into two and used the bottom section to cover each wing.
I sewed two lengths of elastic (42cm / 16.5") to make loops and stitched the loops through the tights and felt in place.
I then used the glue gun to attach tinsel to the edge of wings.
I used a metre of thick green ribbon to make a bow in the middle.
Then finished with some green and silver glitter glue.
The Christmas fairy will be ready for the show.
