Paper plate ranibow angel wings for kids

I love making beautiful fun things from simple household materials.... like paper plates! I saw these beautiful angel wings on PINTEREST (I'm not sure who's original idea they were) and thought they were totally awesome so we gave them a go.


  • 14 large paper plates
  • Elastic
  • Hot glue
  • Paint to decorate (optional)


Cut 12 crescent shapes from your paper plates and glue them together to form wing shapes.
