DIY PAPER: PAPER WINGS – Costume
Happy Friday! We’re making paper costumes for Mardi Gras and I wanted to share with you!
Our children go to a French school where they celebrate, “Carnival.” (Mardi Gras/Fat Tuesday) This year, our kids wanted to wear animal costumes but, I didn’t have time to get out my sewing machine. I started thinking about both my love craft paper and for a way for the kids to personalize a costume themselves. These wings are pure craft-paper and, once constructed, our daughter had so much fun coloring them. I hope you will, too! I think we’ll hang them up, as art work, on her bedroom wall once complete. (Great for rainy days,parties and Halloween, too)
See the cutting and assembly instructions below.

Crayons, glitter or paint for finishing touches
DIY PAPER WINGS HOW TO:
See the above photos and illustrations for cutting and assembly instructions.Once the wings are complete:
1) Cut two tubes of wrist sized, paper.
2) Tape these, with paper tape,* to the interior, top of the wings
3) Using the same paper tape, tape the wings together in the middle.I used double layers of tape to adhere these two sides.
(* I prefer matching paper tape but, any strong masking tape will work.)
