Bee 2

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:

Bee 3

To begin, flatten your first tube so you can cut it with your scissors. Cut the tube into 1/2-inch strips. Repeat with all tubes.

Bee 4

Open your tube pieces back up into rings. Arrange the pieces into a heart shape.

Bee 5

Use your hot glue to begin adhering your heart together from the outside in.

Bee 6

Brush your honeycomb with the gold acrylic paint to add some “honey” highlights. Just do a rough job, it doesn’t have to be perfect, we’re only adding a little “rustic” interest.

Bee 7

To make your bees: 1.) Glue 2 pom-poms together. 2) Cut two short pieces of black chenille (about 1.25-inches long). Form them into horseshoe shapes, and place them around the seam where you glued the pom-poms together, and the pom-pom that is going to be the bee body. Glue to secure. 3.) Cut a small heart from the cardstock for the wings, glue to the back. 4.) Fold one stamen in half for antennas, glue on the head. Adhere two eyes to the head.

Bee 8

Spell out the words “Bee Mine” with your letters, and glue to the honeycomb.

Bee 9

Glue the bees to the honeycomb heart.
