1st, bend the wire clockwise to form a loop as picture shows, and place the wire under the body wire;

2nd, bend the wire anticlockwise to form a loop as picture shows, and place the wire over the previous wires; now, you’ve got a pair of bottom wings;

3rd, continue to bend the wires to make the other pair of wings in the same method, notice that this pair of wings is bigger than the bottom one.

Step 4: Finish the Wire Wrapped Dragonfly
