ADULTS: DIY angel wings costume

A Thrifty Diva came up with this quick, easy and cheap way to create beautiful angel wings! She cut a wing shape out of cardboard, and then traced that shape to cut out the other wing so they matched. Then she just glued little pieces of toilet tissue to them and attached a ribbon to create a strap. Voila – angel wings! The best thing is that you can do this with items you probably already have in your house, and you can wear the wings with almost any outfit to make a fast DIY costume!

ADULT: DIY Ugly Christmas Sweater

Ugly/Tacky Christmas sweater parties are so fun and can bring out the most creative, festive outfits I’ve ever seen over the holidays.  This DIY ugly Christmas sweater is super easy to create and if it’s not “ugly” enough you can for sure add more to it.  Erika showed this photo on a post where she did a fun tutorial for a DIY dog sweater so she didn’t write a tutorial but it looks easy enough.  From what I can see you just need some mini Christmas ornaments, a bow and a sweatshirt in any color you choose then attach the items by sewing or hot gluing them on in a tree pattern.  You could even step it up a notch and not only make it “ugly” but also noisy if you did bells in place of some of the ornaments!  Get creative and have fun!
