Upcycling Badminton Shuttlecocks into shuttlecock angel wings
Upcycled angel wings: One of my very first posts was about upcycling shuttlecocks. I am inundated with feather shuttlecocks, my family is badminton mad and play several times a week. It doesn’t take too many whacks of a racquet before a feather shuttlecock is past its best and relegated to the practice bag. I have hundreds of them, as I can’t bear to throw them out. I’m determined to find ways of upcycling them. My latest feather shuttlecock upcycle is a festive one; a shuttlecock angel wings Christmas decoration.

How to make Shuttlecock Angel Wings
Once dried, you can leave them as they are or spray paint them as I have done. I fancied some copper wings, so spray painted a couple of pairs of them with copper paint.
I like to hang my shuttlecock angel wings from a branch, but you could string them into a garland or hang them individually on the tree. The angel wings would also make a great name place holder on the Christmas lunch table, you could write the place names on the hearts.
As I said at the beginning of the post I am always looking for things to make with shuttlecocks as I have an endless supply, if you have any ideas I would love to hear them.
