Cut 12 inches of floral wire. Cut your foam ball in half.
Use your wire like a needle and thread to "sew" the foam ball
(flat side touching the barrette) to the barrette.
Tear off about 10 inches of yellow tape and cut it in half
lengthwise and then into squares. Cover your foam ball in
Cut 3 strips of black tape each about 5-6 inches long and wrap them around your bee.
Tear off a strip of black tape about 3-4 inches long and cut into tiny squares. Cover 1/4 of your bee in these squares to make his head.
Cut 2 pieces of floral wire 4 1/2 inches long each. Tear off 2 strips of electric blue tape each about 4 inches long.
Lay out your two strips of tape sticky side up on your cutting board.
Place your 2 pieces of wire in the middle of the tape on one side, leaving about 1 1/2 inches of the wire off of the tape. Cut 2 pieces of wire about 1 1/2 inches long and bend them in half.
Stick them on top of the wire in the middle. Fold the tape over onto itself. Now cut the edges to make it look more like a wing.
Stick the wire coming from the wing into the bee's back.
Cut 2 pieces of wire each about 1 1/2 inches long and wrap them in black duct tape, leaving about 1/2 of the wire showing.
Stick these above the head and bend them a little at the tops.
Using a dime as your stencil, cut out 2 white circles for the bee's eyes and place them on his face.
Trace your dime onto some black tape and them trim off a few millimeters. Place these black circles on top of the white ones.
Now cut two tiny squares of white tape to make the glare on the bee's eyes.
