DIY Cupid Feather Wings

Yesterday we posted our Kissed By Cupid Sweet Table featured on Ruffledblog a few years back. As promised here are the instructions for the gold wings. They're so fun hanging on the wall (I think for the whole month of February is acceptable, right?), and look pretty great on our model too. Maybe we should all wear wings around the house in celebration of Valentines Day/because they're cool?!

-white feathers (we used 10 bags for these large wings)
-gold spray paint
-thin elastic
-hot glue gun & glue sticks
-2 pieces of foam board
-utility knife
1. Draw out the shape you would like the wings to be on one piece of the foam board.
 2. Using the utility knife, cut along the line, place on the other piece of foam board and trace. Save the scraps for later.
3. Glue feathers in rows, starting at the bottom and overlapping slightly. Turn over and cover the other side with feathers as well.
4. Repeat step 3 on the second wing.
5. With the left over foam board, cut out a large rectangle and score down the middle, just enough to fold easily.
6. Cut elastics long enough to go around shoulders and hot glue to the rectangle piece of foam board near where you scored it.
 7. Hot glue the piece of foam board with attached elastics to the wings.
8. Spray paint and you’re done!
