Use these free directions and create a dragonfly or two or three...

  • Age Guideline: 5 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

 

Materials Needed:

Instructions:
You can use paint or markers to color the craft stick whichever color you like. Glue wiggle eyes on near one end of the stick.

Cut many pieces of black thread. Pull off a piece of clear packing tape about 6-inches long (you can also use clear contact paper). Set down the piece of tape sticky side up. Cut piece of black thread and stick them on the tape. This will look like all the little lines on a dragonfly's wings!

Once you are satisfied with the amount of thread you have on your tape, place the craft stick across the center of the tape. Tear of another piece of tape about the same length as the first one. Lay it on top of the first piece of tape, sticky side down. This will cover the tape and also keep the craft stick in place! Now trim the tape to be shaped like wings, and you are done!

If you like, you can also add 6 chenille stem legs to your dragonfly!
