  • 1 Create dragonfly body

  • 2 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. 

  • 3 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.
