Y’all this bee didn’t last long in the warehouse, but I’m sure you can find a very cute wooden bee hanger from Hot Mesh Mom here -> Wooden Bee Hanger If you are dead set on the Burlap you can find some burlap door hanger alternatives on Etsy. This quick and fun bee wreath with sunflowers does NOT take long to make. You’ll see from the video that we put this together in less than 15 minutes!
Bee Wreath with Sunflowers
One thing that I see a lot that I think is a mistake is designing additions that takeover the original door hanger or base piece. It gets lost in a sea of bow, picks, and sprays. Let’s keep it simple and fun friends! We want to just add enough right so that it accents the bee, but it doesn’t hide our bee.

Fun Bee Wreath with Sunflowers
- Trim the ends of the curly pick so they are not poking out.
- Layer the curly picks and floral stem to form a bunch that will accent the door hanger base.
- Secure together with a zip tie.
- Using your EZ Bow Maker, start off with a 12" tail using your 2.5" wired ribbon.
- Add 6" loops to each side.
- Using the 1.5" wired ribbon to create another bow slightly smaller than the one just made with the 2.5"wired ribbon.
- Using the 2.5" wired ribbon, add just a tail.
- Come back with the 1.5" wired ribbon to make a center loop.
- Tie off the bow with a pipe cleaner.
- Add your bow to the center of your floral bunch.
- Using the excess pipe cleaner from bow, attach the floral bunch and bows to the burlap bee.
- Fluff out your add on, and trim the ends of the ribbon tails at an angle.
Alright, you see how the bow doesn’t hide the whole bee? You can still clearly tell that we have a bee going on right here, y’all. To me, that is super important in your design.
