Light Bulb Bumble Bee

When we were back in our hometown recently, we saw many used light bulbs. I took one back to the Studio and let Ethan paint it as I remembered seeing this cute bumble bee here

Glue eyes. Make wings out of white chenille stems and glue. Make antenna and also the stinger using black chenille stems and glue in place. 

The bee is now complete :D
