Make a Christmas angel costume by cutting a hole in a white sheet and fastening a simple halo and wings using wire. This project requires less than an hour to complete and requires a white sheet, a rope, ribbon, three wire hangers, white tights, a headband, spray-on glitter, scissors and pliers.
- Cut the sheet
Fold a sheet in half, and decide where your head goes. Cut a hole in the sheet using the scissors. Lay the sheet flat, still folded, and trim it so that it looks like the letter T. The top part of the T is the sleeves for the arms. Use a rope to cinch it around your waist.
- Make the halo
Use a coat hanger for the halo. Unbend the wire using a pair of pliers, and shape it into a circlet. Wrap the end of the wire around a headband. Twine silver or gold ribbon around the wire. Adding spray-on glitter is optional.
- Fashion the wings
Use pliers to bend the hangers into oval wing shapes, making sure to twist the ends of both hangers together. Cut the legs off of a pair of tights, and stretch the nylon over the folded hangers. Glue the ends of two ribbons to the wire that you can loop over your shoulders.
