Do It Yourself!
Dragonfly Hair Bows...
Ribbons (3/8" or smaller)
Googly eyes (4mm)
Hot glue gun
Line your clippy with green ribbon (instructions HERE).
Apply some hot glue to a paper towel. Quickly grasp a googly eye with tweezers, and dip the eye into the puddle of hot glue. Immediately apply it to the top part of the clippie, and press it down w/ your fingers. Apply all googly eyes.
Cut a 5" piece and a 6" piece of ribbon for each dragonfly, in whatever color you want the wings. I used 3/8" ribbon, but skinnier ribbon would be cute too.
Hot glue the 5" ribbon
onto the clippie, as shown.
Hot glue the 6" ribbon
onto the clippie, directly over the diamond-shaped
overlap of the previous "wing" piece. Your dragon fly
should look like this...
Bend the bottom ribbon up, tucking it in on itself, and hot glue its' center to the diamond. Then, bend the top ribbon down, tucking it in on itself, and hot glue its' center directly over the last piece.
Horray! You have a happy little dragonfly! (I still need to find something good to use for antennas, which can be glued on under the back side of the head.)
Variations: This would
be a cute little bug to stick on a covered headband as
Last, if you decided to do this project yourself, please send me a photo with your name and what state you're from! I've recently decided to start featuring my readers' finished results.
