Halloween Wings

Download Activity Guide
Looking for a last-minute costume for Halloween? Why not create our Halloween Wings! You could be a dragon, butterfly on your own mythical creature!
  • Step 1Sketch out the shape of wing you would like to create. We have joined 2 pieces of A3 paper together to create a bigger set of wings. Make sure to leave room on the left side of your design so you can add a ‘U’ shape, like the one we have drawn in the image.
  • Step 2Unroll some armature wire and begin shaping it around the outline you created, along the top from the right to the left side.
  • Step 3Once you have created the ‘U’, flip the armature wire over and use your template to create the other wing on the other side of the ‘U’. Cut the wire using wire strippers or scissors. Adult supervision is recommended when using wire strippers or scissors.
  • Step 4To keep the armature wire flat and in shape, gently tap around the wire with a hammer. Adult supervision is recommended when using a hammer. This will remove any unwanted kinks or bends.
  • Step 5Move on to the second layer of your wings. This time start from the second line of the wing and bend it up to the top and then through to the ‘U’. Flip the wire over and repeat for the other side like you did in step 3, then cut the wire at the end. Repeat step 4 with this piece of wire.
  • Step 6For the third piece, start from the third line and repeat the method from steps 3 and 4.
  • Step 7For the final piece and bottom part of your wings, use a pair of chain nose pliers to help bend the wire in shape. Again, create the ‘U’ and flip to repeat on the other side, then cut the wire when you are happy with the shape. Repeat step 4 with this piece of wire.
  • Step 8Use duct tape to join the first 2 pieces together. Repeat to attach the third piece.
  • Step 9Use chain nose pliers to bend the 3 pieces of wire around the 4th piece at the bottom. An adult may need to help with this step. Wrap all of the armature wire in duct tape.
  • Step 10Lay down a piece of cellophane that will cover the entire surface of the wings plus at least a 3cm edge and roughly cut around the shape of your wings. Use a low melt glue gun to attach the wings to the cellophane. Adult supervision is recommended when using a glue gun. Allow to dry.
  • Step 11Cut off any excess cellophane around the wings, leaving a 3cm edge around the perimeter.
  • Step 12Cut slits into the 3cm edge of cellophane where there are bends in your wire frame as this will make it easier to fold. Fold the 3cm edge over and glue to the inside of the armature wire. Allow to dry.
  • Step 13Colour in your wings using coloured permanent markers and a metallic POSCA marker. Be careful not the press too hard or you could pierce the cellophane and rip your wings. Allow to dry.
  • Step 14Use 2 pieces of ribbon that measure at least 1m long. Tie the ribbon in a knot either side of the ‘U’ as shown in the image. Place the wings against your back and wrap the ribbon around your arms and tie at the front to secure.
  • Step 15Your Halloween Wings are ready to wear and scare!
