Dragonflies in the Garden!

Flea Market Gardening recently did an article on how to make some Dragonfly Decorations for your garden.
I was very excited and pleased that they asked to use my photo at the end of the article for inspiration!

Here are some of their readers ideas:

Fan blades and spindles were put to good use

Love the detail in the brackets on this one

These bring out the farm girl in me
Love that barbed wire!

This is so darn cute!
Wish I could figure how to make one like it.
I bet when the sun hits it it's glorious!

This Dragonfly Chime I made many, many moons ago with some left over beads, wire and some old flatware. I belonged to a crafting group back then and we had monthly projects. The original pattern was for a Butterfly...somehow mine turned into a dragonfly...hmm, wonder how that happened?  


  1. Very cute ideas -- I think my favorite is the ceiling fan blades! Wow that must be huge and make quite an impact in the garden!

  2. I am always!!!! amazed at peoples creativity!!!!

  3. I knew when I saw the photo that it would lead to your blog Deb. So many creative ideas to make dragonflies. I like the fan blades and spindle as they would be big enough to cover a good portion of the fence.

  4. I host a weekly link party called "Seasonal Sundays". This week, in honor of my fourth blog-a-versary, I'm having a giveaway of a $100.00 gift certificate to HomeGoods/TJ Maxx. I'd love to have you join the fun!
