Cobalt Fairytale Wings

Not very scary I know but I love a good halloween costume party as an excuse to make a new set of these things :) This time I used mesh fabric instead of tights, loose-stitching it onto the frame and sealing with a hot glue gun to prevent fraying. This method gives a much better result and it's a lot more painless this way, with tights I always found it hard to shape the wings while keeping the fabric tight, which was a doddle on the fabric. Also the paint colours come out a lot brighter on a white base fabric.

4 coat hangers, mesh fabric, hot glue gun, acrylic paint, paper flowers and leaves
