Materials Needed

  • Twigs
  • Maple Leaf Seeds
  • Glitter
  • Small decorative beads
  • Glue Gun
  • School glue

How to Make It

  1. Go on a hunt for the perfect dragonfly thin sticks. They should be small, thin and straight.
  2. While on your search look for dried maple seed pods. We gather ours in the Fall and store them for craft time.
  3. Glue two full or four half seed pods across the top of the twig leaving one inch from the top end of the stem. This should form the shape of a cross. Use a glue gun for this step.
  4. With a paintbrush, spread school glue over top of the seed pods.
  5. While the glue is still wet, sprinkle glitter on the sticky wings and shake off the excess.
