Video Tutorial ~ DIY doll wings, upcycling project


My first attempt at a video tutorial, which will hopefully improve with practice. I've made a set of wings for a doll, using a simple wing shaped piece of plastic and silk flower petals. I chose to use plastic milkjugs as a base because the plastic was more durable than file folders, etc., and my husband drinks LOTS of milk. We recycle, but that's a lot of plastic - I knew I could find some use for them!

I put my little camera on a tripod, and often had to wrap my arms around it while I worked in order to get a nice straight-on view. I had no script, so I just talked as I worked - a bit rambling at times!

This was a fab video Deanna. I'm going to try this. The wings are quite realistic and love the fullness of them.

I thought you did a great job on this tutorial. Your instructions are very clear, as always. If you get better....wow! Great idea for wings and scaly things.
