Garden Dragonfly Decor

5 Materials
2 Hours

I have seen dragonflies made from old ceiling fan blades...I wanted something far more primitive....

taking two grapevine and cutting in equal length from the plant and while still green I bent into shape secured with twine at base and began wrapping the wing in a lacy pattern....

Two wings attached..time to make 2 smaller wings

again using green wood and twine i made the smaller wings....I also inserted a black electrical tape just to make this set of wings different...
So attaching is easy...just wrap twine till attached securely to the leg...and repeat with other set of wings.

I used natural hued twine to attach the wings

and I used green hued twine around the "body"and even added a small pine cone for an added touch

    I love the cuteness of it. I would agree with Debby. I would hang it up to show it off. All of your hard work and creativity deserves to be hung up where people can admire the cuteness you created.πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ™πŸ

    Your dragon fly is cute. I agree with the previous comments, hang that beauty. I know it's hard to find the perfect place but you can always move it to different area's (think elf on a shelf) keep up the good work
