I’ve been on a bit of a bee kick lately. It seems like every store I go into lately has adorable bee decor. Have you noticed that too? I’ve had to show restraint! 😀

Last summer I made this bumble bee wreath that I hung on my outside door.

Every time I came home it made me smile. The bright sunshine yellow colors are just the epitome of spring and summer.

So when I saw these darling bee napkins at Hobby Lobby (at 50% off no less) I just had to buy them!

With just a few inexpensive supplies, you can turn an ordinary mason jar into a pretty bee-themed decoration.

Perfect for adding a touch of springtime charm to your mantle or shelf.

Let me show you how!

Supplies Needed For Bumble Bee Craft

How to Make a Bumble Bee Craft

I’m using decoupage napkins for this mason jar craft. It’s probably one of my top 3 favorite craft techniques. 

Here are a few of my most popular decoupage projects:

Step 1. Clean your glass

Start by cleaning your glass with rubbing alcohol to remove any dust or fingerprints.

Step 2. Paint your mason jar

Give your mason jar about 2-3 coats of chalk paint, letting it dry in between coats.

White chalk paint

You want to paint the glass jar first so the colors in the napkin will show up more vibrant and bright.

Step 3. Add Mod Podge

Once the paint is completely dry, brush mod podge onto the mason with a small craft brush. 

Step 4. Decoupage the Napkin

Now it’s time to add your napkin or whatever material you are using to decoupage the mason jar.

Quick tip: Most napkins are 2-3 ply. Only use the top printed layer of the napkin to cover the jar.

Napkins tear easily so be sure to gently place the napkin onto the jar and tap it lightly to secure it.

Step 5. Smooth the Wrinkles

Use a plastic bag or plastic wrap to smooth out any wrinkles. This really helps prevent tearing too!

Step 6. Add a Topcoat of Mod Podge

Add a full coat of mod podge to the entire napkin-covered mason jar. Let dry.

Step 7. Attach the Honey Stick

Wrap a piece of twine around the mason jar and secure the honey stick to it. I love how this little stick looks hanging on the jar!

Step 8. Fill with Spring Florals

All that’s left now is to fill your sweet bumble bee mason jar with spring flowers. Can you believe these flowers are from Dollar Tree? The daffodils are my favorite!

Before you head over to the rest of the Thrifty Style Teams projects, I have to share some sad news.

It’s difficult to even write this but I couldn’t share this post without taking a moment to let you know that two of our sweet and talented hosts, Michelle from The Painted Hinge and Paula from Virginia Sweet Pea have passed away.

They will be greatly missed and I pray for their respective families. It is truly amazing to see how many lives they touched all across the country and beyond.

I loved getting to know them through this group and other collaborations. I wanted to include one of my favorite spring projects from Michelle and Paula in this month’s post. ❤️
