DIY spray painted dollar store fairy wings

Elden and Edith are going to be "flower fairies" in one of my best friend's wedding next month. She is getting them floral crowns and was asking what color fairy wings I thought she should get them. Since I've only ever seen neon-colored fairy wings at the dollar store, I suggested attempting to spray paint them to make them more wedding-friendly.

I did a little research and discovered that this brand of spray paint is the best to use for fabrics. I didn't want to spend $12 on spray paint so when I discovered Michael's had some (and, at the time, a 50% off coupon) I stopped on my way home from work. With a few easy coats I went from this:

To this:

This project was SO easy! For such a cheap / easy project (it cost about $7 total for both pairs of wings and paint and took maybe half an hour total for all coats) I really think the paint made a world of a difference!
