Delightful Dragonfly

The Delightful Dragonfly is made with wooden craft spoons and a clothes pin. You may not have wooden craft spoons lying around the house, but you can buy a bag of them at your local craft store for under $2. Make this into a magnet by adding a self adhesive piece of magnet to the back.

Level of Difficulty: Moderate

Here's what you'll need...

• Clothes pin
• Wooden craft spoons (2 for each dragonfly)
• Pipe cleaner (half for each dragonfly)
• Scissors or wire cutters
• 2 google eyes or black marker
• Paint and brush, your choice of colors

Here's how you make it...

1. Paint each wooden spoon and the clothes pin any colors you choose. Once the paint is dry, criss-cross the spoons and insert them into the clothes pin. Cut 1/2 of a pipe cleaner (about 6") bend in half and curl at the ends to make the dragonfly's antenna. If you have googly eyes, glue them on now, or you can draw on the face with a black marker.

Great Job, make as many as you'd like in as many different colors as you can!
