I need some help

I need to find doll parts. Angel wings to be exact. Does anyone know where I can buy (online) pretty angel wings. I have been trying to make wings for an angel I made, but I can't get any of them to turn out well. It's annoying me, and quite frankly, I've probably wasted enough glue and materials that buying them would have been cheaper. Certainly that would have been less stressful!

Here's what I made. This was inspired by another blogger (I will find her name when I'm not so annoyed - I can't find anything when I'm frustrated). She made several beautiful trees out of styrofoam cones. I saw an angel in them, but I can't get the wings right. Please help me if you know of a reputable vendor online! I just want to buy some pretty silver angel wings that won't droop or shed sparkles all over the place. I have to go make a card or something that is a lot easier than this!!

Okay - as promised, Kellie at Polished to Perfection was the inspiration for the angel. She has a really cool wreath up right now. I have some styrofoam wreaths on order. My idea didn't look nearly as cool in my head as her wreath does! I will have to try both and see which I like better.

This is so sweet. Looks like a lot of work, but worth it to have such a nice 3D project! I made angel wings for bears once using anaglypta (textured wallpaper) but you could buy the sheets of paper that is like it. I cut the paper out in a sketched double wing shape & glued them onto felt. They worked ok. & you could paint them... :0) Mel
