🌹 DIY: Valentine’s Day Edition- Mini Cupid Wings ✨
Happy Valentine's Day!
Want to make little wings for your little one?
Here's how to make your pet heavenly using a few household items...
& a feather boa!
Here's what you'll need:
pair of scissors
a piece of cardboard (measuring roughly 12"x12" depending on the desired size)
hot glue gun
white feathers or a white feather boa
ribbon or string
carefully plan your wing shape!
Remember to leave a small piece of cardboard to use as a connector between the two wings later one
this is where you can get creative! Google different wing shapes and sketch out the design onto the cardboard
(or if you're like me, you can just "wing" it hehehe)
Cut out one wing and place it on top of the other piece of cardboard to make sure that you get them roughly the same size when cutting
plug in your glue gun and have it start heating up
either use a bag of white feathers or your feather boa and prep the feathers so that they're easy to grab and glue once the gun is hot
if you're using a boa, it's easier to pluck a bunch of feathers and lay them out
pick out a cute ribbon or string that will later be used as a harness to attach the wings and hold them in place on your bebe!
time to glue!
This part is the trickiest because the feathers REALLY want to attach themselves to the hot glue gun
take a chopstick or knife or something long and pointy to hold the feather to the cardboard
don't use your finger because it's too hot and dangerous!
prep the middle piece to hold the wings together and glue it to the edge of each wing
once you have the wings attached keep on gluing those feathers on!
Try to add several layers of feathers on top of one another so that the cardboard doesn't show through
generously apply the hot glue to each wing and attach two separate pieces of ribbon
these ribbons will tie around your bebe's tummy to hold the wings into place
if you want extra security, glue on an additional set of ribbons to secure the wing
