Heyhey! Today I’m sharing a DIY on how to make this little beaded buzzy bee necklace. I had a sudden flashback of making these bee’s as a kid and wanted to see if I could remember how to make them. Turns out they were easier to make now than when I was 10!! You could possibly make them bigger than I have if you used bigger beads.
For this DIY you will need: thin wire, 2 different coloured beads (for the body and wings), pliers and chain.
1. Put 3 beads onto a piece of wire and pull both ends of the wire through 2 of the beads. 2. You should have a little triangle of beads as shown. 3. Add 3 more beads onto the wire and repeat the process. 4. Add 2 beads and repeat, then 1 bead and repeat. By this stage you should have a perfect body shape for the bee. I had to really tighten the wire to get it sitting like this. 5. Curl the tops of the wire to make the antennae. 6. Use another piece of wire for wings. I simply twisted the ends together and attached them to the body.
Next, attach the bees to the chain. I made 2 of them and attached them at different lengths on the necklace. Super cute huh? I am really enjoying sharing some beaded DIY’s! You can check out how to make an amethyst necklace here.
