Repurpose Ceiling Fan Dragonfly-Glows in the Dark

Using a old ceiling fan, wooden table leg, twig ball, gate hook, and some marbles this guy flew in.
I screwed the ceiling fan paddles to the table leg.
Pulled out some spray paint I had, some lace and started painting.
cut lace lay on wings and spray paint
After I was done painting I finished it with a glow in the dark spray paint, so now he will glow at night. I'm also going to add lights in his head.
Added the tile, and hooks, ready for a place in the garden.
Think he found his spot in the garden.

    Awesome, total creativity at its best. Where did you purchase the head, and is the material wire?

    Did you make the leaf, your dragonfly's sitting on? If so, what mixture did you use? Already have large plant leaves for mold. Thank you.
