  1. 1

    Create the angel wings by tracing an angel wing pattern out of cardboard. Cut out the wings and apply tacky glue. Add rows of white feathers. Allow to dry, turn wings over and use the same technique to apply feathers on the other side. Use a hot glue gun to glue the wings to the back of the white blouse or shirt.

  2. 2

    Wear white trousers or flowing skirt along with the white blouse. Put on gold or silver shoes.

  3. 3

    Cut gold tinsel to about 15 inches long. Using the hot glue gun, glue ends together to form a tinsel circle. Attach the tinsel circle to your hair using hair clips, being careful to keep the round halo shape.

Tips and warnings

  • Make sure to use enough feathers so that the edges of the wings are covered and the cardboard is not visible. Use all black clothes and feathers for a darker angel.
