DIY a Dragonfly Pin

Follow along as I make this adorable Dragonfly Pin using a chipboard design piece from Denise Boddey Designs. This post is created as a part of the design team and some materials have been provided to use in this post. You can make your pin in different colors if you wish. Make one match a special outfit or for a special occasion. The Dragonfly Pin would also make a great gift or an embellishment for a card or mixed media project.

Since the chipboard is dark, I used white chalk paint to coat the dragonfly. I found it needed two coats to fully cover the piece. Now the colors will show up better.

paint colors

I used a variety of paint colors and applied them in a dabbing motion. You can see what I mean in the video tutorial below.


To enhance the wings, I painted the entire dragonfly with White Enchanted Shimmer and while still wet, I applied chunky glitter to the wings.


To finish off the dragonfly, I used UV resin to seal the piece. If you don’t have UV resin you could use a variety of different sealers. Spray varnish coating or Diamond Glaze would work as alternatives.
