Zebra Dragonfly with Ceiling Fan blade wings
See the other dragonflies by clicking Dragonfly heading
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
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...
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 :)

I'm always adding new pieces and have a lot more than dragonflies
Have a wonderful day!
