As if to stay forever inโ€”

Weathered but warm when looked back on.

Global problems might feel closer if the globe were small. So I tried making it just the size of a jungle gym. People said it could make a logo of an energy company – an honest one. I enjoyed the summarizing process. I might try applying it on other subjects.

Paper Wings & A Felt Halo for Halloween Angel / ํ• ๋กœ์œˆ ์ฒœ์‚ฌ – ์ข…์ด ๋‚ ๊ฐœ & ํŽ ํŠธ ํ›„๊ด‘

My daughter wanted to be an angel this Halloween, so we made wings and a halo together.

Halo: We sewed a leftover piece of felt, first making a tube and then stitching it on alternating sides for a scintillating look.ย We first thought we’d make one floating over her head with wire, but I worried that it would be fragile, and she worried that it would look “childish”. So we ended up having it sit directly on her hair. Fortunately, the yellow worked well on her dark hair.

Wings: At first we thought of using real feathers on clothes on a wire frame. But we quickly realized that the feathers wouldn’t stick very well, and putting clothes on a wire frame may need a lot of work. So we instead made the wing with cardboard and feathers with embossed paper. The embossed paper worked wonders – it looked warm and soft. We painted the bottom blades of the wings (instead of covering them with paper feathers) to give them some sense of depth. We made straps out of leftover towels (not shown in the photos), so that she can wear them like a bag. On the left is the front side of the wings; on the right, back.

She was very happy wearing them and was anxious if we’d throw them away after Halloween. So we decided to keep them for decoration.ย It took 2-3 nights to make them, but it was rewarding.
