How about a metal coat hanger, bend into the shape you want, and then cover with nylons or tights? I have seen that idea so many times but never tried it.

I could try that. Is it hard to bend the metal to the shape you need? HOw do secure the nylons to the wire?

On the DIY network they recently made some on a show called Creative Juice. They used 3 coat hangers and 2 pair of nylons. Everything got tied in the center and covered. They used glitter glue around the part of the nylons touching the wire to prevent runs.

Thanks Sarahjean. It took me months to make them. I had to make about 16 wings. The party was a big success.

I make wings to go with my tutus and this is how I make them. You can get the wire at Walmart in the hardware department, or of course at Home Depot or Lowes. I think I paid like $7 if that for the wire she shows in her tutorial. I would post pics but DH lost my SD card before I could pull all of my pictures off of it.
