    Step 2:

    Step 3:

    1. Turn glass to opposite blank side to create cat tails, a paper towel or napkin can be placed inside so lines in front don’t interfere. Make 2 long stems leading down to base of glass and a long oval at the end of each stem. Add small line at top of each oval for detail.
    2. Use puffy paint to add in small dragonfly silhouettes around cattails. Use small “X” as base for front facing silhouette and sideways “V” for body of side view silhouette.
