    Instructions

  1. 1

    Cut the brown paper bag down one side and across the bottom so it becomes one large piece of paper. Fold the bag in half.

  2. 2

    Draw your fairy or angel wing onto the bag starting at the fold. The folded edge will be the middle and narrowest part of the wings.

  3. 3

    Cut out the wing, taking care not to cut the folded side. Open the bag into a pair of wings connected in the middle.

  4. 4

    Decorate the wings with crayons, markers, glue and glitter. For a softer look, decorate angel wings with feathers or cotton balls that have been pulled apart.

  5. 5

    Allow the wings to dry completely. Attach the wings to a costume or clothing with large safety pins.

Tips and warnings

  • If making the wings is a birthday party activity and you are on a tight schedule, consider decorating with butterfly or flower stickers instead of glue and glitter. The guests can make them and wear them without worrying about wet glue.
  • If you are not sure how to draw the wings, practice on scrap paper. Create a pattern and trace it onto the bag.
  • When using paper grocery sacks, keep the decorations to a minimum. Too much glitter and glue can weigh them down causing them to rip. For a sturdier set of wings, fold a piece of poster board in half and follow steps 2-5.
