Pipecleaner Art Dragonfly

Remember the time you were in the country and heard and saw the awesome dragonfly as he zoomed past you in flight? Let's make one out of pipe cleaners…

What You'll Need

How To Do It

Step 1

Take two cleaners. Bend one in the shape of a long U and twist the other one around the two stems as shown.

Step 2

Wind another cleaner around the stems near the top to make a head. Remember to leave enough of the cleaner free to represent the 'feelers.'

Step 3

Bend two more cleaners as shown to represent the long and graceful wings of the dragonfly.

Step 4

Twist these into position on the body as shown. Try pasting tissue paper over the wings. The effects you get will be astonishing.
