Calling all dragon lovers! These easy DIY no sew dragon wings will transform your favorite How to Train You Dragon fan into their high-flying dragon of choice. They are perfect for a How to Train Your Dragon party, rainy afternoon craft, or easy dragon costume.
Disclosure: Netflix provided me with a streaming device and service in return for writing about their service. All opinions expressed in this post are my own.
How to Train Your Dragon and How to Train Your Dragon 2 are wonderful movies based on the children’s book series by Cressida Cowell. We’re fans of both movies, The How to Train Your Dragon Legends shorts, and the all-new action packed Netflix kids original series, DreamWorks Dragons: Race to the Edge. The series began on June 26 and features all of our favorite How to Train Your Dragon characters. Hiccup, Toothless, and all their friends are on a quest to explore strange new worlds, seek out never-before-seen dragons and end the war between Vikings and dragons once and for all.
After creating my adorable How to Train Your Dragon baseball hats, I decided that my kiddos needed dragon wings to truly transform into a Night Fury, Deadly Nadder or Monstrous Nightmare!
The no sew project could not be easier; just measure, trace, and cut. Fleece does not unravel so these wings can be washed and keep looking great. In just 10 minutes you will have dragons taking flight all over your house!
How to Train Your Dragon Wing Supplies
- ¾ – 1 yard of fleece fabric, 60 inches wide

How to Train Your Dragon Wing Directions
1. Measure the wingspan of your wing wearer from backbone to fingertip, add two inches.
2. Measure the back length of your wing wearer from collar to waistband.
3. Fold your fleece in half.
4. Measure and mark the wingspan horizontally on your fabric with chalk.
