Summer is coming and so is the buzzing and beauty of dragonflies. Get ready with our simple Craft Stick Dragonflies! This lovely summer craft comes with a Free Dragonfly Wings Template. It can also double as a bookmark, too!
I have to say, we are all quite amazed with dragonflies come summer time. It’s fascinating to watch them as they dance and zoom along the water. If you’re just as fascinated with dragonflies be sure to also see our Shiny Pipe Cleaner Dragonflies, Cupcake Liner Dragonflies, and Clothespin Glitter Dragonflies.
To make these Craft Stick Dragonflies you will first need the Dragonfly Wings Template. Then, what’s needed is light cardstock or construction paper in vibrant colors, glitter glue, a glue stick, small googly eyes, acrylic paint, and scissors.
