Learn How to Make a Springtime Bee Door Hanger

By Roni Johnson

In today’s tutorial, I show you how to make a fun springtime door hanger using All-Purpose Inks, Fireworks! Spray and Vertigo Film! You will be the buzz of the neighborhood.

 

Skill: Beginner

Time: 1.5 hours + dry time

 

Directions:

Step 1

Gather up your supplies.

 

 

Step 2

Cut cheesecloth into 1 – 1.5” strips.

 

 

Step 3

Dampen the cheesecloth with water and place it into a plastic sealable bag.

 

 

Step 4

Use an Ink Dropper and place in a few drops of #11 Lemon Yellow All-Purpose Inks into the bag.

 

Step 5

Seal the bag and smoosh the ink around until all of the cheesecloth has been colored.

 

Step 6

Repeat steps 3 – 5 this time using #82 Real Black All-Purpose Ink.

 

 

Step 7

Remove the dyed cheesecloth strips from the baggies, unfold and place over a protected surface. Allow the cheesecloth strips to dry completely.

 

 

Step 8

Place the embroidery hoops on a piece of cardboard and trace around the shape x 2.

These will help to:

a) stabilize the finished door hanger

b) give you something to glue the cheesecloth to

c) give you a nice finished-looking door hanger.

 

 

Step 9

Glue the embroidery hoops to one of the cardboard pieces.

 

 

Step 10

Paint the hoops and cardboard with a coat of black acrylic paint.

 

 

Step 11

Begin wrapping the body of the bee with the dyed cheesecloth alternating between yellow and black. Wrap the head of the bee with all black cheesecloth. Secure the cheesecloth to the form using hot glue.

 

 

Step 12

Cut a stinger from cardboard, paint it black; cover with a layer of On Point Glue and apply glitter.

 

 

Step 13

Affix the stinger to the bee form using hot glue.

Step 14

Cut wings from Vertigo film and affix them to the back of the bee form using hot glue.

 

 

Step 15

Spray foil leaves and paper flowers using Fireworks! Spray ink and allow them to dry completely.

 

 

Step 16

Using hot glue, adhere the leaves, flowers and a ribbon bow to the front of the bee form.

 

 

Step 17

Insert a piece of wire into the second cardboard piece for a hanger. Use hot-glue to affix this cardboard piece to the back of the bee form covering the cheesecloth ends and wings.
