How To Make A Beehive Decoration For Your Door
Use these step-by-step instructions to put this piece together. Just follow along to these directions, and you’ll have this project completed in under 15 minutes!
Trim the stem of your white flower floral. Then, zip tie the floral stem to the top of your beehive base frame.
Spread out the floral stem to add some texture and secure the different parts to the beehive base with zip ties to hold them in place.
Take your blue flower floral stem and spread apart the flowers and small stems. Add the pick to the top of the white flowers to add some lovely contrast to the yellow beehive base. Secure it with zip ties.
Take your EZ Bow Maker and your first 2.5” ribbon. Make a 7” loop with 14” tails in an “X” shape.
Repeat that process with your second 2.5” ribbon. Make sure that the second layer of your bow offsets the first layer in a similar “X” shape.
Take your first 1.5” ribbon and repeat the same process, but make your loops slightly smaller (about 6.5”). Offset the previous layer with your “X”.
Repeat the process again with your second 1.5” ribbon.
Take your third 1.5” ribbon and make two loops about 6” with 14” tails in that same offset “X” pattern.
Use your ½” ribbon and make 5.5” loops with 8” tails.
Finally, take your last 1.5” ribbon and make a 5” center loop with 14” tails.
Take 2 pipe cleaners and attach them at their ends so that you have one extra long pipe cleaner. Carefully pull your bow off the EZ Bow Maker and wrap the pipe cleaner around the middle of the bow to hold it together. Give a tight twist to secure it.
Use the same extra long pipe cleaner to attach the bow to your beehive frame just to the left of the floral stems. Dovetail the ribbon tails.
Take 3 ribbons (I used 2 of the 1.5” ribbons and the ½” ribbon) and cut 12” tails of each ribbon. Stack them on top of each other, pinch in the middle and fold. Use a pipe cleaner to attach the ribbon tail to the beehive decor base in between the florals. Dovetail the ends.
Add the larger bee pick to your beehive decor project at the top right of the bow. Secure it with a dab of hot glue.
Take your smaller bee pick and cut the bees off of the larger stem. Insert one into the beehive frame on the left side, at about the midway point. Secure it in place with a dab of hot glue. Add another bee to the other side of the base (in the florals) and secure with hot glue.
Insert one more bee pick into the bottom right side of your beehive decor. Use a dab of hot glue to secure it.
Isn’t it cute? I love how cheerful and summery this beehive decor project looks!

- Cit the stem of your white flower floral and use a zip tie to attach it to the top of your beehive base frame.
- Spread out the florals to add texture and use zip ties to secure the different parts to the beehive base.
- Repeat the process with your blue flower floral stem and add the pick to the top of the white flowers to add some contrast to the yellow beehive base. Secure it in place with zip ties.
- Take your EZ Bow Maker and your first 2.5” ribbon. Make a 7” loop with 14” tails in an “X” shape.
- Take your second 2.5” ribbon and repeat the process, making sure that the second layer of your bow offsets the first layer.
- Take your first 1.5” ribbon and make 6.5" loops with tails the same length. Offset the previous layer with your “X”.
- Do the same thing with your next 1.5" ribbon.
- Use your third 1.5" ribbon and make 6" loops with 14" tails.
- Grab your ½" ribbon and make 5.5" loops with 8" tails.
- For the final layer, use your fourth 1.5" ribbon to make a 5" center loop with 14" tails.
- Attach 2 pipe cleaners together so that you have one extra-long pipe cleaner. Carefully remove your bow from the EZ Bow Maker and wrap the pipe cleaner around the middle of the bow to hold it together. Secure it with a twist.
- Attach the bow to the beehive frame. Cut the tails in a dovetail shape.
- Let's make ribbon tails with 3 of our ribbons. Take 2 of the 1.5” ribbons and the ½” ribbon and cut 12” tails out of each. Stack them on top of each other, pinch in the middle and fold. Use a pipe cleaner to attach the ribbon tail to the beehive decor base and dovetail the ends.
- Add the larger bee pick to your beehive decor project at the top of the grapevine frame. Use hot glue to secure it.
- Cut your smaller bees off the main pick stem and insert one into the beehive frame on the left side. Use hot glue to secure it in place. Add another bee in the florals on the other side of the base and secure with hot glue.
