Dragon wings are a little different form fairy wings, and even easier to make. Just get a metal hanger, sheer fabric, a hot glue gun and ribbon.

  • Break a clothes hanger in half. You can do this easily by repeatedly bending it in the middle until it snaps. Bend each side into a bow shape.

  • Lay one bow on your sheer fabric. Cut a jagged shape that will drape nicely from the hanger. Cut along the curve of the hanger, too. You should end up with a jagged shape as in the picture to the right. Hot glue the upper edge of the fabric along the hanger. Repeat for the other wing.

  • Twist the hangers together at the ends. You may need pliers to do this. Wrap the ends of the hangers with more of the sheer fabric or a coordinating fabric.

  • Attach two lengths of ribbon where the hangers meet to hang the wings at your shoulders. Thick ribbon works best, or you can twist together many pieces of thin ribbon.
Make small wings if you are attending a crowded party! No one likes to get hit in the eye with a wing.
