Gather all materials and then remove the packaging and labels. Basecoat both clay pots with yellow acrylic craft paint. Let the paint dry and then apply a second coat, if necessary.
Paint stripes with black acrylic craft paint from the top to the bottom of each clay pot. Set aside to dry. Apply a second coat, if necessary.
Cut a larger and smaller half circle from black craft foam. Attach two wiggle eyes to each Bee head with a glue gun and glue sticks. Add polka dot cheeks by dipping a new pencil eraser into pink acrylic craft paint. Set aside to dry. Attach Bee heads to bases of clay pots.
TIP: You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you would have to wait for it to dry.
Cut a 12” chenille stem in half and fold both sections in half. Attach a black tinsel pom pom to the cut end of both sets of antennae with a glue gun and glue sticks. Glue the folded end to the back of the Mama and Baby Bee heads.
Cut two long skinny triangles from black craft foam and secure in the hole in the bottom of the clay pot with a glue gun and glue sticks.
Cut small white paper doilies in quarters and attach two to the back of Mama and Baby Bee using a glue gun and glue sticks.
A great family fun craft activity to complete with the kiddos. The perfect place card for a summer barbecue dinner, fun tag for a summer birthday present, or decoration to gift to a neighbor or co-worker!
