It is a dragonfly made with a clothespin and the wings are made of confectionery.

Great souvenir option and the kids will love it !!!

Average time: 10 minutes

  • Wooden clothespins
  • Colored chocolate pralines, but can be made with other candies of your choice
  • Acrylic paint of various colors
  • Brushes
  • Small plastic bag
  • Transparent adhesive tape
  • Eyes for small dolls
  • hot glue
  • Pipe Cleaners

Tip 1: pipe cleaners can be found in tobacco shops. If you prefer, you can also replace them with colored capped copper wire.

Tip 2: If you are not skilled in detail painting, you can stick colored paper on the base of the fasteners.

Step by step

Step 1:

With the brush and acrylic paint, paint the wooden fastener. Choose contrasting colors for the base and decor. Let it dry


Step 2:

With hot glue, fix the puppet eyes on the end of the clip.


Step 3:

Place the colored pralines in the plastic bag, leaving a gap to fit them in the ornament. Fold the opening and close with clear tape.


Step 4:

Pass the thread in the middle of the confectionery bag and tie. With a pipe cleaner, go around the same place on the line and adjust the antennas.


Step 5:

Finally, fit the fastener in the middle of the confectionery bag to form the body of the dragonfly.


I hope you enjoyed.
