Pipecleaner Dragonfly

So much fun to make and create! Learn to make a dragonfly using pipecleaners and beads!

Pipecleaner Dragonfly

What you need

3 pipecleaners
2 large beads
5 small beads


Make the wings:  Fold a pipecleaner in half, and twist the ends together, with about 3/4 of an inch extending.

Bring the point of the fold to the twisted area, and twist again to form a figure “8”.

Make another set of wings for the other side.

For the body: Fold the last pipecleaner in half, slide the beads on, and fold up the bottom of the pipecleaner so the beads won’t fall off.

Coil the two tops of the pipecleaner to form antennae.

Twist the ends of the wings onto the body to secure.
