These bottle top beehives with hand print bees turned out even better than expected!
We found a great way to print patterns onto a beehive – using the tops of small plastic water bottles. They make great beehive shapes – and even though they are not 100% accurate – meaning they are not hexagons, they will do nicely!
Cut out your beehive shape, add some paint to a plate to dip the top of the bottle into and print away! It is that simple. It looks great!
The beehive now needs some bees!
We used our hands to make them. Paint on stripes and print print print!
Once the hand prints are dry, shadow cut around them and add wings and eyes and feelers!
(Showcasing the winning bees – including my favorite – backwards feelers!!)
Put it all together and you have a great bee filled beehive!
