Bumblebee Craft Kit DIY

These bumblebees from my Bumblebee Craft Kit DIY are so stinking cute! I seriously can’t take it! The kit comes as a trio so you get all three of the bees shown, and they’re unfinished so you get to decorate them however you want to!

If you like to DIY, then you have to check out these craft kits! They are unfinished wood and unassembled so you get to completely customize and personalize them to your taste!

How to make a Bumblebee Craft Kit DIY

I started this bumblebee trio craft kit by tracing the shape of the bees’ bodies on the yellow gingham fabric and then I cut the shapes out.

Apply a coat of Mod Podge to each of the bee bodies and press the fabric onto each one. Use a rolling pin to smooth out any wrinkles or bubbles and allow the Mod Podge to dry.

Trim any excess fabric from each of the bees with a pair of scissors. Then, trace each of the bees’ wings on the embossed scrapbook paper.

Cut the wings out of the scrapbook paper, apply a coat of Mod Podge to the wooden wings, and place the scrapbook paper wings onto the Mod Podge.

Next, paint each of the bumblebee overlay pieces with black paint. Paint each of the circles for the bees with black paint as well.

Bring it all together

Allow all the paint and Mod Podge to dry on each piece of the bees, then glue the body pieces together for each bee from the bumblebee trio craft kit.

Paint the edges of the bees’ bodies with black paint and the edges of the wings with white paint. Once the paint is dry, glue the wings onto each of the bees.

Cut three strips from the black and white fabric and tie them into three little bows – one for each of the bees. I used jute twine to secure each bow. Then I glued them onto the bees.

I glued a small button over the center of each bow. Next, I used white pipe cleaner as the bees’ antennae and glued the black circle pieces on the ends of each pipe cleaner.

Lastly, I glued the stands to the back of the bees so they could stand up on their own!
