My project for this Christmas! Funny little dragonfly magnets.
I used the large and small size Christmas tree light bulbs, pipe cleaners, marbles, wire, beads, sculpey clay, glass paint and a glue gun.
The ones with thick furry pipe cleaners on the bodies look very "pretty". Others have the metal showing for a more clean look. Some have the clay eyes which were time consuming to sculpt and others have marble eyes painted with glass paint. Originally I wanted to bead the wings but attaching the wire to the metal light bulb was tough! So I went with sparkle pipe cleaners.
I made 40 little guys in all. My favorite ones are made with the smaller version of the Christmas light bulbs. So cute! I added magnets to the back....some people wanted ornaments but I thought this year I would try magnets. My SIL did get an ornament version:
