Maker Mama Craft Blog: Easy-Peasy Last-Minute Angel Wings (No Sewing Needed!)

And even better, I've made my first tutorial so you can make your own (easy-peasy last-minute) angel wings: Materials: 11 plain white paper plates (3 for the center and 8 for the feathers)2 strips of ribbon--I used gold ribbon measuring about 23 inches, you can make yours longer or shorter as needed.
