It really made my night (not!). I wanted to order some halos for an upcoming craft show. Now, I'm not so sure I should.

Make your own! They're easy to do. I would check for suppliers online that are easier to deal with, and stock up on anything that has been tested. It is metallic, so you'll need to figure that part out.

I made really full, gorgeous halos for party favors at my daughter's party this year. You can assembly line them and knock out several dozen in a couple hours easily.

I tried making my own. Didn't turn out so hot and it took FOREVER with the painting. With making hairbows, dreamcatchers, memory boards, and tutus from scratch, going to school full time, and work full time and being a single parent, I just don't have the time.

I've never had a hard time dealing with halo heaven. I make my own halos (or made about 60 or so of them a month ago) so that's not an issue. I just stocked up on their wings because they were a good price and easy to embellish.

Please let me know if you find any suppliers that have passed the CSPIA specs.

I'm going to do some research tomorrow. I really wanted to get some as fillers.

It's kind of crappy that EVERYTHING they sell is aimed at children. So, saying is not for children under 12 doesn't actually protect them if they are marketed towards children still. Saying a pacifier is for only 12 and up doesn't matter because only children use them anyways...if you know what i mean.

That is exactly what I was thinking earlier!
