I made extremely cheap replacement flutter wings
« on: January 12, 2021, 05:11:58 AM »
I pulled the pegs off a outlet plug and cut up some soft plastic wings from a dollar tree doll

This is genius! I love a fix like this. Cheap and a nice tidy job. I guess you could make them iridescent with spray paint if you liked, but they are really lovely. I like the shape of them better than the originals.

Brilliant! Those are just the prongs off an electrical outlet cover you used for the tabs? Who would have thought those were the perfect size? The wings themselves are really pretty too!

They look amazing! For how good they look I think it would be worth a trip to Dollar Tree to see if I can find them. What kind of doll did they go on?

What a creative idea...I would have never thought of using the outlet covers to make tabs!

They were on a fairy kelly clone doll in the toys section :)
There's also fake butterflies and birds in the craft section that could be used

Wonderful idea! That color is perfect for Peach Blossom, too. Theoretically, you could just find any old thing with wings you like and use the tabs to make them compatible- amazing!

They look so effective!  Looks as if they were actually designed for Flutters!
Hmm, I need to scour some of the UK toy stores (after lockdown) to see if they sell similar winged dolls, some great foundations for customisation projects!!
Thanks for sharing your idea!!

That works :)

We might need different material for the tabs, here in the UK...but I imagine a plastic package of some kind would work. A lot of soup pots (plastic ones) have little tabs on them that might work...

OK, well I'm taking notes on that because I just ordered two Flutter Ponies and I didn't want to pay for custom wings... so... I think I better check my local Dollar Tree!  :snicker:

Glad you guys liked it!  :biggrin:
I'd love to see any flutter ponies with homemade wings, and if anyone comes up with more ways to make flutter wings, I'd love to see too.
I want to give mine a smooth uniform iridescent finish, does anyone know of a paint that would work?
They are soft plastic, and spray paint reacts badly to that.
