Step 1

Paint the clay pots and base. The smallest pot gets 2 coats of yellow paint, a coat of glitter paint and 2 coats of pink stripes. The large pot gets 2 coats of yellow paint and a coat of glitter paint on the outside. Paint 2 coats of black paint on the inside with pink paint at the bottom. Paint the clay base with 2 coats of black inside and out, and a coat of glitter paint on the inside. (Allow paint to dry after each coat). While the paint dries thoroughly, make the arms, legs and antenna out of the black pipecleaners.

Step 2

Glue on the antenna to the large pot, the arms to the small pot and legs to the base. Glue the pots together. Make your wings by making a bow with the cream ribbon and attach to the pink pipe cleaner and tie around the neck of the little bee to cover the seam. Place the Big Puppy Pop in the bee’s hands with the green pipe cleaner as leaves. Glue the pop to the head and pop stick to the base to secure in place. Fill your bee with the Valentine Variety Mix foil wrapped hearts and give to your special someone.
