Christmas Angel Wings


What can be more heavenly at Christmas time than angel wings? I have wanted a pair of antique angel wings for years. Knowing that I will probably never own a pair has made me get creative.





I used poster board backing as a base for gluing paper feathers. Then I cut teardrop feathers, layering them on the poster board. They measure 11 inches wide by 22 inches tall. I still have to glue down the feathers and hang them.




The pair pictured below is actually one wing. I reversed the photo to see what they will look like when finished.

Not the wings of my dreams, but a fun alternative.

Merry Christmas!

They're beautiful, Nancy.
You should really submit them to Stampington when completed.

Whow! I love them! How clever, I love the pattern on the (tissu I guess) paper. I think you should send them to Stampington too, but first enjoy them, or better first finish them, it looks like quite an elaborate job as almost all beautiful things!
