How To Make a Popsicle Stick Dragonfly

Step 1: Make Dragonfly Wings

Grab your glitter cardstock and draw wing shapes on the back of your paper and then cut out. We drew two hearts with the points touching and then cut out.

Step 2: Build the Dragonfly Body

Grab your colored popsicle sticks and place on your craft table. Glue 4 pom poms to the top of the popsicle stick. We chose to use a larger pom pom for the head than the body but you can make all four the same

Step 3: Add Tiny Details

Add your mini googly eyes. Cut small pieces of pipe cleaner and glue to the back of the pom pom. We chose to use hot glue (adults only)

Crafty Tips:

  • Feel free to swap glitter cardstock for regular solid cardstock or even patterned cardstock.
  • If you can’t find pre-colored popsicle sticks you can purchase regular popsicle sticks and paint them before adding your pom poms. You can also choose to leave your popsicle sticks plain as well.
  • The googly eyes are a favorite part to this project but you can leave them off.
