A Dragonfly Pin

I LOVE this dragonfly that S made!

Remember the cool dragonfly that Ross made for our art auction flower stock pot? Well the very easy directions actually made a smaller, jewelry sized pin. We had upsized it for the flower pot. But S found the directions and asked to make one for his Grandma for Mother's Day.

He found the beads and strung them on the "body".

The wings were probably the hardest part and he fiddled with those for a bit.

And the antennae were fun to twist, he said. He put a safety pin on the back and voila - he was finished.

It turned out pretty dang cute and it was much oohed and ahhed over by his grandmother.
