About Me

My photo

I am a work from home, home schooling Mom who loves her Kids...yep, I think my kids are great. You will find me: Knitting, cross stitch, embroidery and working with felt are things I enjoy for fun. I also love to decorate and find deep satisfaction in decorating my home with great finds and my handmade items.  Gardening is one of my great loves, it like decorating outside!

Buzzy Bumble bee Tutorial



These little guys are fun and easy to make...perfect if you have a limb in your Waldorf or natural Home school room. Or just because you like fuzzy little bees.
Materials:
Stripy Pipe Cleaners
Wax Paper
String to Hang them by
Scissors


Cut the pipe cleaners about 1.5 inches long.
Cut a piece of wax paper about 1 inch wide and 1.5 inches long.
Fold the wax paper accordion style and trim ends in a curve.
Fold the pipe cleaner in half with the wax paper at the bend.
Fold pipe cleaner in half.
Fluff up wings.
Add a string to hand it with.
Walla!
It took maybe 20 minutes to make these...that's with looking out the window at the bird feeder. And sipping my ice tea. And taking photos.


Just buzzing around

I know you really can't see my bees in this photo...I wish the lighting were better. But its been overcast here forever and I just had to take the photos. The little black dots are bees, with a few cloud babies and fairy's hanging about.
