How to Make

  1. Cut your foam board to 40cm x 60cm. Bend a pipe cleaner into a hexagon shape. Put some yellow paint into a craft tray and dip your hexagon pipe cleaner into the paint. Print the hexagon shape repeatedly over the foam board to create a beehive pattern.
  2. Pick the letters BEE HAPPY out of the wooden letter pack and paint them in yellow and black stripes. Glue them onto the centre of the foam board.
  3. Make an oval shape out of a yellow pipe cleaner, leaving approximately 5cm at the end. Wrap the remaining 5cm around the top of the oval shape. Then take a black pipe cleaner and wrap this around too. Repeat with a yellow pipe cleaner, then black, then yellow, until you reach the bottom. This is the body of the bee. Take another black pipe cleaner and roll it up into a circular shape to make the head. Stick this at the top of the body. Take a blue pipe cleaner and create two loops, like an 8 shape. Glue this at the back of the bee to act as wings. Repeat to make another bee.
  4. Glue the two bees on either side of the ‘BEE HAPPY’ letters. Take a few black pipe cleaners and cut them into 4cm pieces. Place them onto the board in a dotted, curled line, coming out from the bottom of the bee. You can bend the pieces, so they create the right shape. Glue them into place.
  5. Dip a mini sponge paint dapper into some black paint. Print half circles onto the edge of the board repeatedly, to create a scalloped pattern. Do this all the way round.
  6. Stick some felt flowers sporadically over the board. Cut some yellow ribbon to 70cm and glue each end onto the top of the back of the board, so it can be hung.
