Dragonfly made from old license plates

2 Hours
Advanced

I love anything metal! I had a bunch of license plates that were lying around taking up space and collecting dust. I decided to make a dragonfly using the license plates and other discarded materials that I had on hand. You will need license plates, chair spindle, screws, wire and something different and whimsical for the eyes. To see more click on the link to my blog.

    what did you do with the edges of the wings?

      @Darcy Hebner Hi Darcy! We use a plasma cutter so the edges are not sharp at all! If you had thin plates and used tin snips, edges would be sharp. You would need to file the edges.
