DIY Bee House Shelf Sitter

I love when I find items from previous holidays on clearance. I’ll usually grab a few things just in case for future craft projects! When I sat in my craft room a few days ago I had pulled out this Valentine house I found on clearance and decided it was time to use it. I ended up coming up with the idea to make this DIY Bee House Shelf Sitter, and couldn’t be happier with how it came out! Hopefully you love it as much as I do and decide to give it a go too!


Clearance Valentine House
Dollar Tree Bee Fabric
Dollar Tree Mini Unfinished Wooden Bee – which I painted 
Paints- Black, Yellow, White

First, I removed the door and window from the house. I used my heat gun and a putty knife to pop them off.

Second, I painted the outside of the entire house with the black paint. I then painted the house with the yellow paint.

Third, I painted the roof of the house with the white paint.

Fourth, I painted two black stripes across the house. I taped off the areas I didn’t want the black on.

Fifth, I gave the yellow areas of the house another coat of paint to even out the lines and to make it darker.

Sixth, I painted the mini wooden bee I found at Dollar Tree with the black, yellow, and white paints.

Seventh, I cut a piece of the bee fabric I found at Dollar Tree to the size of the roof, and attached it using Mod Podge. I then painted the previously removed window and door with white paint, and glued them back on.

Finally, I glued the little wooden bee to the top corner of the house.

Here it is all finished, how do you think it turned out? Do you think you’ll give this DIY Bee House Shelf Sitter a try too? I love this craft project, and love how it turned out! It’s the perfect little decoration for Spring or Summer time and would love beautiful sitting on any shelf! I absolutely love when I can take an item and turn it into something completely different and make it my own. This little shelf sitter will be in my next restocking trip into my craft booth!
