Angel Wings

You saw these paper angel wings on my Christmas House Tour
and I said I would show you how I made them.

First, I have to admit I didn't come up with this idea,
a friend made some last year and I stole her idea!

They could not have been more simple!

First step: cut 2 wing shapes out of heavy cardboard.
Step two: cut out feather shapes from paper.
I used just plain white paper for these, but I think
I will make some with old sheet music.

Next, I laid out the feathers in different ways
to decide how I wanted them to look.

Once I made that decision, I just glued them in place,
overlapping to give a fuller effect.

I attached some snowflakes down the center when I
put them out for Christmas.
