Materials Needed:

  • white foam core board
  • 150 6"- 8" coquille goose feathers
  • 2 yards sheer 1" wide white ribbon
  • 1 large package fluffy white craft feathers
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • scissors
  • craft knife
  • cutting board or mat
  • oval platters or small serving bowls to use as templates

Cut Foam Core Ovals

Create a foam core base for wings by tracing around oval platters or small serving bowls to create five ovals in the following approximate sizes: two large ovals that are around 8"x4" and three small ovals that are around 4"x2" (Image 1). Use a craft knife to cut them out (Image 2).

Create Ribbon Straps

Using sharp scissors, cut a 2-yard piece of sheer white ribbon piece in half (Image 1). Use a craft knife to punch four holes, in the shape of a square, in one of the smaller ovals (Image 2). Thread each ribbon through two holes with all ends facing same direction; these ribbons will be the wings' straps (Image 3).

Assemble Wings' Foam Core Base

Place four ovals, large on top, on work surface in a butterfly wing pattern. Place oval with ribbon straps over the center of the other ovals and trace around its location with pencil (Image 1). Remove then apply hot glue inside the traced area (Image 2) and press oval into hot glue with ribbons facing out. Hold in place until glue dries (Image 3).
