INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. FOR THE CORK BOARD: Position the stencil in the desired location (shown: Americana Decor Honeywire Stencil). Use 1" painter's tape to hold the stencil in place.
  2. Using a cosmetic sponge, apply Spiced Pumpkin to the top and bottom rows of the stencil.
  3. Using a clean cosmetic sponge, apply Spicy Mustard to the next top and bottom row of the stencil.
  4. Using a clean cosmetic sponge, apply Pineapple to the rest of the stencil. Remove the stencil; set the cork board aside to dry.
  5. FOR THE BEES: Using a 1/4" flat brush, paint three smaller hearts in Snow White.
  6. Using a 1/4" flat brush, paint three larger hearts in Spicy Mustard.
  7. On half of the larger heart, outline with Lamp Black on a fine, round brush. Create jagged stripes for the body of the bee and a dot for the eye. Paint two swirls for antennas.
  8. Using the fine, round brush, apply a small amount of Pineapple between the stripes to create a highlight.
  9. On the Snow White hearts, paint two longer swirls for the wings.
  10. Using craft glue, adhere a large and small heart together in desired position. Once dried, glue to the body of the bee onto flat thumbtack.
