  • How to make a twig ornament. Delightful Dragonflys...A Twig Craft! - Step 1
    Step 1

    In honor of our magical friend, the dragonfly, we created these simple, sweet little crafts.

    Here's what you will need
    ~ twigs
    ~ beads for the eyes
    ~ maple keys
    ~ glue gun
    ~ glitter (if that appeals to you) I highly recommend Martha Stewart's gem stone glitter ~ it is the queen of glitter, with superb sparkle!
