Toilet roll bumble bee craft
We’re back again with yet another toilet roll craft idea! This sweet and simple toilet roll bumble bee craft was perfect for some sunny day crafting. My little boy had so much fun making our old yarn wrapped bees but sadly they’re looking a little bit on the sad and sorry side so we decided it was time to make some more bumbles to play with. We just love how cute these turned out!
Here’s what we used
Empty toilet rolls
Black, white and yellow paper
How to make our toilet roll bumble bee craft
Take the black and yellow paper, cut out a few strips from each and glue them around the empty toilet roll in a repeating black and yellow pattern
Take your toilet roll and place it on the centre of your pipe cleaner. twist the pipe cleaner around the head section of the bee and then roll up the two ends to make the antennae. Once the antennae is secure glue on two wiggly eyes.
Cut out two oval wings, Fold a small tab at the end of each and then use the tab to secure the wings to the bumble bee’s back. Cut out a small pointed stinger and glue it on the inside of the tail end of the bee. Once dry the toilet roll bumble bee is ready to play with or display!
