These are made out of jingle bells, wire, and paint!

No instructions were given, but I think they are pretty straight forward.

Those are just adorable - both of them!!

I see the two jingle bells on each bee but is it hard to find graduated sizes?

Also, what did you use for glue?

I think those are so clever.

To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.

Oh gosh, I should have said I found these while surfing the net. :oops: I didn't make them - yet!

Now, I've seen graduated jingle bells at Joann Fabrics, so I'm sure any sizable craft store would have them...atleast around Christmas! Might be able to find them at a STEAL right about now :D

I'm not sure how the legs etc were attached in the pictures. My own thoughts are that the wire is actually "7" shaped, with the shorter "arm" being secured inside the bell with a bit of strong glue. Anyway, that's what I came up with while gazing at my screen :lol:
