Step One:

Using your glue gun, run a short bead of hot glue around the outside edge of the wing wire. Clip any cord that is showing on the ends of the marabou boa, then stick that end to the glue and start pressing the boa into the hot glue along the inside cord of the boa.

You are going to keep doing this in short length increments (about 6” at a time) until you have the full outline of the wing wires covered with marabou boa.

Step Two:

Now, you are going to flip the wings over and do the same thing with the backside too. It is tedious work, but it is so worth the affect!

**Note, because the wings are netting, the hot glue will seep through to the other side of the wing and burn your fingers (Yep, I learned that the very hard way!). Wear gloves or consider using a low temperature glue gun.**

Step Three:

Clip some pieces of the iridescent white curling ribbon off of the roll. I just did three pieces about 8” in length. I liked the way they curled on their own, but feel free to use some scissors to curl them a bit more.

Squeeze a good glob of hot glue in the center of the back of your wings. Then, stick the ends of your curling ribbon pieces in the glue.

Step Six:

Now, slide that clip with the daisy side out right over the top of the curling ribbon glue mess you’ve made on the center of the wings. Makes it all pretty!

This is really optional, but I thought that the clip looked like it might irritate your little Angel’s belly. So, I just quickly hot glued a small strip of white felt on the inside clip piece to avoid irritation.
