We bet you'll wonder why you never thought of this quick and easy way to make dragonfly wings, but we're sure glad Tonja Lenderman is sharing it with PCC!

Step 1: First you need 2 or 3 different leaf canes that look good together. Take those 3 canes and lay them side by side like so.
Step 2: Squeeze them together into a simple leaf shape.
Step 3: Cut 1/3 of this cane off and reduce so that both pieces of the cane are the same length. Take the 2 canes and shape them like so, and you have a set of dragonfly wing canes!
Here's a dragonfly I made using the canes from the lesson.
And another dragonfly using three different canes! Use your imagination and your colors for fanciful dragonflies!
