Step1: memorize her wings, know the colors of the crystals and know what order they go in. Also keep in mind the frames of her wings are black.
Step 2: Organize your materials. You will need four long strips of cardboard, black spray paint, 16 crystal shaped pieces of cardboard, white spray paint, light blue paint, Blue paint, purple paint, pink paint, orange paint, yellow paint and light green paint.
Step 3: Spray paint the frame. Take the long strips and the black spray paint outside and spray the strips on one side. When that one side is done spray the other side and after both sides are dry, bring the strips back in. Also put the black away to reduce cluster
Step 4: Spray paint the crystals. Take the crystals and the white spray paint outside and spray the crystals. These will take longer to dry because you may have to do multiple layers of white spray paint. When the white has dried, bring the crystals back in and put the white away.
Step 5: Paint the crystals. Paint four of the crystals light blue, two of them blue, two of them purple, two of them pink, two of them orange, two of them yellow and two of them light green.
Step 6: Assemble the wings. After the colors on the crystals are done drying, join two of the long pieces of the cardboard together to shape a semi bent elbow. Do the same with the remaining two pieces.
Step 7: Attach the crystals. On one elbow shaped wing glue the crystals on in this order from the base to the tip: Light blue, blue, purple, pink, orange, yellow, light green and light blue.
Step 8: attach the spine. The “spine” goes right on the back side of each wing. This spine can consist of any type of strong, heavy plastic. Attach it by taping it to the back side of your wings.
Step 9: Tape the wings to the inside of your Flandre vest. Usually duct tape works best.
Use staples and duct tape to fix your wings if they come apart. I hope this helps
