Create dragonfly body
Cut chenille stem in half, then fold one stem in half. Slide on 6 pony beads, leaving about 1 1/2" of space at the folded end.
Add head to dragonfly
Open the folded end of the stem, creating a loop of about 3/4" and glue the pom onto the loop. Bend the other end of the stem over to secure beads.
Add eyes, nose and wings
Glue your wiggle eyes and 1/4" pom nose onto the 1" pom head. Cut 2 - 6" sections of ribbon and tie onto stem between first 2 beads for wings.
