Homemade Tulle Fairy Wings

Create fairy wings with depth and dimension by using gathered tulle. White tulle wings enhanced with a light dusting of silver glitter are perfect for a frost fairy. Add a cluster of deep-pink roses to the centre of a pair of pale-pink wings for a flower fairy. A woodland fairy can wear green or brown tulle wings adorned with silk leaves and tied on with brown ribbons.

Skill level:Easy

Things you need

2 wire coat hangersPliersWire cuttersSewing machineMatching threadScissorsFeltNeedle1/2-inch ribbon, 3 yards

Instructions

1 Shape the coat hangers into a wing shape by stretching the bottom corners into a more rounded shape with pliers. The bottom of the hanger will be the outside edge of the wing. Cut the hook off the hangers with wire cutters, leaving 2 inches of wire.

2 Cut a piece of tulle 12 inches wide and 36 inches long.

3 Lay the long edge of the tulle over the outside edge of the wing. Use a sewing machine to sew the tulle onto the wire with a wide zigzag stitch. After you sew 3 inches, lower the needle into the fabric, and pull the wire toward you 2 inches. This will gather the tulle you have already sewn onto the wire.

4 Continue sewing until all the tulle is gathered onto the wire. Remove the wing from the sewing machine.

5 Distribute the gathered tulle along the outside edge of the wing so it extents 1 inch around the curves at the top and bottom of the wing.

6 Gather the other long side of the tulle around the neck of the coat hanger, and sew it in place by hand. Cut off any excess tulle.

7 Make the other wing in the same way. Twist the wires together to hold the wings together.

8 Cut two 2-inch squares of felt. Sandwich the twisted wire between the felt squares. Sew the top and bottom edges of the squares together. Then sew close to the wire on each side to hold it in place.

9 Cut the ribbon into four equal pieces, and sew one end of each piece on each corner of the back of the felt square. These ribbons are the ties for wearing the wings. Wrap the top two ties over the fairy's shoulders and the bottom two under her arms. Tie the top left and bottom right ribbons together in the centre of the fairy's chest. Tie the other two ribbons in the same way.

Tips and warnings

Use spray glue and glitter to add sparkle to the wings.

If desired, sew flowers or ruffles over the felt.
