Craft Foam (at minimum 1 12x18 in sheet at 2mm. Add more sheets if you plan to enlarge the pattern or do multiple colors)
Wire at least a couple of yards of 22 gauge steel floral wire. (I’ve been using Ashland Floral Wire 22 gauge with nice results). You may need more or heavier wire if you enlarge your wings or add heavy decorations.
Wire Cutters and Needle Nose Pliers or one that does both
Lace / Ribbon / Cloth / Elastic Straps for attaching the wings around the shoulders. 2 yards is a good minimum.
Heat Source / Iron / Heat Gun and a piece of scrap cloth to protect your iron if you are using one
Hot Glue Gun and Sticks
Scissors / Craft Knife
Trims / Gems / Feathers / Glitter / Foliage or anything else you would like to decorate your wings or wing base with.
*Optional* Small Hard Round Objects (like large marbles) for heat shaping foam onto
*Optional* Dress Form (Not necessary, but if you have one, it can be helpful for sizing the back plate)
