Here we tell you how you can use bee decor in making crafts and gifts and sweets.
Materials for the craft “Bee hive”:
- carton paletta of eggs
- oblong white beads
- oval yellow beads
- round brown beads
- diluted glue
- toilet paper
- yellow and brown gouache
- black marker
- Velvet wire
- White transparent paper
Strung yellow beads – bodies of bees and brown beads – heads on the wire. Cut the wire with tongs and fire velvet with match. Paint black stripes on the body with marker. Cut wings from paper and glue them to the body. Make 20-25 bees. One bee – the Queen must be much more than a bee-workers. Glue pieces of paper kitchen towels to the palette. When all is dry, paint it with yellow gouache. Do not wait for drying, take a brush and make strokes with brown gouache. Attach white beads (egg-larvae) with hot glue inside the cells. Stick bees with hot glue.
