I love arts and crafts. I used to volunteer teach an elementary art class and love sharing tutorials for fun crafts to make with kids.

I hate to admit this, but when I see a bumblebee around I keep my distance from it. I like the looks of a bumblebee though, with its bright yellow and black stripes. I also like to do arts and crafts with the bumblebee as a theme.

Therefore I was interested in finding as many bumblebee craft projects as I could, that also included instructions. This article has those bumblebee crafts that I found, plus a couple of art projects. I hope you find the article helpful if or when you want to do a bumblebee project.For the instructions to make the cute bumblebee shown above, go to Craftideas.info.

1. Terra Cotta Bee

Although sometimes the translation of this craft project is difficult to understand, the photos come to our rescue. This super cute bee has a tutorial at CROISSANT AND LAVENDER.

      My husband is wearing a visor now due to eye problems. Maybe I'll make him the bumblebee visor... or maybe not. It is cute.
