Steampunk Winged Pin.

This is part of my series on my boyfriend and my Steampunk Costumes. My first post was on making a masquerade mask ______.

I saw a cheaply made necklace with wings and gears at a craft shop and me being me thought, “I could totally make that.” so I picked up some wings. I already had a lot of gears. I get home and discover I already had wings too. Does anyone else do that? Oh well, I can use those for something else.

My biggest problem was what to use as a base. I searched my craftroom high and low for something I could use to glue the wings and gears onto with no luck. I searched the garage, the perfect place to look for steampunk supplies, but alas, I didn’t come up with anything. I finally printed out a two inch wide heart shape on black cardstock. I actually printed out three and glued them on top of each other for strength. The wings are pretty sturdy.

Supplies

I knew I wanted to incorporate one of the many old watches I have into the design. The one other clock is just a charm from a craft pack with gears.

After I glued the hearts together with an Elmer’s Glue Stick, I painted the heart gold and then did a light wash of black because it was too bright.

I arranged everything the way I wanted it and then started gluing. I used Aleene’s Jewelry Glue. It works immediately so make sure the pieces are where you want them.

Wings and Gear

I put a gear between the wings because the watch face sat a little wonky and needed to be lifted up.

Wings with watch

I then just put gears on it. I had painted some of them for contrast.

I glued a pin back onto the back so I could pin it to the hat my boyfriend will be wearing.

All done. What do you think?

I love to craft. I sew, crochet, do duct tape crafts and recently, I bought a Cricut and I'm using it quite a bit. I get an idea in my head and I have to try it.
