Fuzzy Bumble Bee

Materials:

  • 8.5x11 sheet of black craft foam
  • Scrap of yellow craft foam
  • Colorful crepe paper streamer, about 3" (optional)
  • Scissors or pinking shears
  • White craft glue

Instructions:

  1. Remove all labels from KC Masterpiece® barbecue sauce bottle. Wash and let dry completely. When dry, screw lid back onto bottle.
     
  2. Lay bottle on work surface and glue two rows of yellow pom poms at the bottom of the bottle, sides too. Next glue two more rows of black and two more rows of yellow pom poms, working your way up the bottle. Finish off with black pom pomsuntil entire bottle and cap are covered.

  3. Cut out wings from black craft foam using wing pattern.
     
  4. Turn bottle over and carefully lay so that pom poms are facing work surface. Glue foam wings to the back of the bottle right where the neck narrows.
  5. Repeat gluing method for pom poms on the back of the bottle, covering the center of the foam wings as you work your way to the top.

  6. Stand bottle upright. Take two of the three pieces of chenille stick and bend one end on each about 1/2". This will be your antennae. Put a dot of glue on the straight end of the antennae and insert it between the pom poms on the lid. Repeat for other antennae.
     
  7. Glue wiggle eyes to the front of the bee.
     
  8. Cut a thin pointy nose from the yellow foam. Dab some glue on the flat end and insert between pom poms under the eyes.
     
  9. Take a piece of crepe paper streamer and twist a couple of times in the middle to form a bow tie. Glue the bow tie to the front of the bee on the top row of yellow pom poms.
     
  10. Set aside to dry completely, periodically checking to make sure that pom poms are not sliding out of place. Gently reposition if needed.
