I just found this ADORABLE tutorial for handmade wings on the Prudent Baby blog and what a great idea for a quick and affordable Halloween costume! You could grab some pretty and bright fat quarters, use a charm pack or empty out your scrap bin!! Get a solid blue shirt and black leggings and use blue fabric with strategic bits of black and white to create a blue jay! Go all red and create a cardinal! Earthy tones like brown, gold and orange would make a fabulous owl! And loud and crazy brights could yield an exotic parrot!!
You don't even need to know how to sew to create these! You could easily glue these feathers down with your trusty glue gun! All you need is a little patience for cutting the shapes!
Have several kiddos needing quick costumes? Make a whole flock of these fun wings!
