Lay your Spoon face down and place two glue spots on the front of the spoon. Carefully place the googly eyes onto the glue spots and hold down. Allow to dry completely.

Step 2

Cut out your dragon fly wings as desired. I cut an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet in half hamburger side. Then took each half and folded hotdog style. This would get me 4 for each half. I then cut from the fold and made a heart shape without the bottom point ending at the fold. When you unfold this you can clearly see the wings.
