When I want to know some strange thing, I always just type my question into Google search. It almost always gives me a straight answer Cheesy

Most wings use coat hangers or other thick wire as a base, with various methods for filling the open space. One of the simplest is pantyhose that you paint and decorate after it's applied to the wings, but some people use iridescent plastic, or fabric, or just weave colourful yarn in and around the wire base and add awesome goodies as they go.

Because your daughter is still quite young, you might consider making wireless wings.
