DIY Bees using Kinder eggs
I am so excited to share these DIY bees with you! At first I thought it’s going to be a blah project and I didn’t even think about sharing it here. I just needed a fun way to spend some quality time with my daughter. But then when I saw these cute little bees I thought the project shouldn’t start here and so we made a honeycomb too, which I’m going to share pretty soon too, make sure to come back and check it out. Together they look absolutely adorable, on our white walls! The room is suddenly happier and such an inviting place!
These DIY bees are such a great way to use up all those Kinder eggs you have no use for once the chocolate is gone. A great recycling project using simple supplies you most likely have around the house! Also a cute way to add more interest and a fun touch to a kids room.
We’ve made this on a rainy day so the photos are a bit dark and blury, apologies for that. But guys, the fun we had!! Amazing!
DIY Bees Tutorial
- Kinder eggs shells
- Black chenille stems (I couldn’t find black so I used silver and painted them black)
- Black marker
- Cutting pliers
- Decide where you want the first black ring to fall on the bee’s body. Trace some glue and wrap the chenille around the body. Leaving a small area loose at the bottom so you can form the legs and twist the ends together at the top.
- Make a loop at the bottom.
- Press the loop in the middle with a thin object (I used a knife so be careful if using that tool too) to separate the loop in half and form the legs.
- Cut the extra chenille stems and slightly curve the antennae at the top.
- Repeat the steps for the other rings (I made 3).
- Draw eyes, nose and mouth on your bee, using a permanent marker.
- And you’re done! Now onto the honeycomb so check back with us soon for another fun, kid friendly craft idea!
