  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.

72. My preschoolers in my home daycare will love making these! Sometimes its hard for them to squeeze the glue out of the bottle, so I pour some in a container and let the kids dip in a Popsicle stick to get their glue out. I use a small, glass votive candle holder because its heavy and doesnt tip over like a lightweight plastic dish would. Its also deeper than wide, so you dont have to put in a lot of glue for the kids to get enough glue on their sticks.

I loved making this with the girls, and they were super excited to show off their spring decorations to everyone. Heads up to anyone with younger children, this craft can get a bit messy with all the excitement. I suggest you lay punt some old newspaper or a plastic table cloth before you begin, and while their hands off every so often so they don't cover the outside of the little fuzzy bulbs in glue as well.
