Recycled Crafts: Pipe Cleaner Bees
Hello everyone! Ever wanted to make your own bee from pipe cleaners but just didn’t know how? We’ve got you covered with today’s tutorial. As with the past couple of week’s blog posts, these bees were also featured at Maker Faire this past Sunday. We had a great time, got to meet so many great people, and can’t wait to do it again next year!
On to the bees…
Yellow pipe cleaner
Take the yellow pipe cleaner and twist it into a hook shape. This will be the bee’s body.
Now make a smaller loop for the bee’s head, creating a figure eight. Be sure to wrap the end of the pipe cleaner around the middle of the figure eight to keep it from coming apart.
Take the Sharpie and carefully draw little lines across the bee’s body and one line on the top of his nose.
Take the transparency paper and cut out wing shapes, then hot glue them to the back of the bee. All done!
