How To Make A Fairy Costume Instructions
Here are the steps you can follow to put together your homemade Fairy costume.
Step 1. Bend the coat hangers into the shape of wings. Be careful when you do this as sometimes hangers are difficult to bend.
Step 2. Bend the hooks of the hangers backward and away from the part of the wings that you want to show.
Step 3. Use the duct tape to tape the hooks together and make sure that the pointy part of the hooks are covered.
Step 4. Stretch the nylons or pantyhose over the hangers making sure that the part you would put your foot in is hidden in the back.
Step 5. Attach the elastic in two loops around the hooks of the hangers so that they can stretch over your shoulders.
Step 6. Decorate your wings with glitter and rhinestones and plastic flowers. You could even use fabric paint to give the wings more personality.
Step 7. Decorate the leotard with rhinestones, glitter, and flowers.
Step 8. Put on the leotard, the wings, and a tiara and you're a fairy!
