Bumble Bees Rock!

This was another easy painting-on-rocks project.

Materials: Black, gold and white acrylic paint and paint brushes; a bit of aluminum screening; a bit of thin wire for attaching the wings.

It was a simple task of painting each rock black with gold stripes, then painting on the little eyes and antennae. I also used an acrylic spray sealant in case I want to put them outside in the garden.

For each set of wings, I cut a rounded, oblong shape from the mesh screening, pinched it together in the middle, then wound a piece of wire through it and wound the wire around the centre of each rock to hold the wings securely in place. You could also use a glue gun, but I wanted to try the wire, and it worked just fine.

Voila! Little bumble bees for the garden.

    I think this is an interesting design for slippers as well–the honeybee theme. . .

    Awwww! So sweet! If you do put them out in the garden along with your ladybugs, you’ll have the happiest looking garden. Long after the flowers stop flowering, your garden will still be very cheerful. 😀
