For those of you that like to make your own dragonflies
I thought I would share my latest ideas with you 

I'm now hung up on animal print since I made the Zebra Butterfly...
Well...I always love animal print.

I used a cobalt blue glass knob on his tail

Fun mismatched blue glass bead eyes

Distressed body

Green leopard print...
Whenever I see green leopard, makes me think of Ballard Designs Catalog 

I used a rusty bell with beads for his tail...

More glass bead eyes...

Fun green striped one in that yummy apple-y green color that I love

I used a lamp part for his eyes...

Then I made a couple in a distressed teal blue...

Circles and....

A stripe

Here's one with wood and pieces of vintage tin tile on the wings

I had some pieces of tile leftover from making the Dragonfly with Tin Tile Wings 
and used them in this one

I ended up drilling small holes in the tile and attaching them to the wings with wire

I normally screw the wings directly into the body but these
spindles were so slim right where I wanted to attach them, I ended
up screwing them to a piece of wood and then into the body

A friend of my Mother's had given me all of these spindles 
that I used in these dragonflies...
It was like Christmas!!

I made her this dragonfly as a thank you :)

Come visit me on Facebook and Pinterest
and if you don't want to make your own dragonfly,

I'm always adding new pieces and have a lot more than dragonflies

Have a wonderful day!
