DIY Mason Bee HouseOctober 11, 2018
Bees are important! Many of our foods and trees that provide oxygen are pollinated and made possible by bees. So, why don’t we do something nice for them for a change? Today, we are going to show you how to make an upcycled Mason Bee House!
You only need 5 things to make this easy house:
• 1 empty tin can, label removed and washed
• Bright colored spray paint (optional)
• Rolls of scrap paper, hollow bamboo stalks, or hollow reeds to put inside
• Nail and hammer to make a hole in the can
• Twine to hang the bee house
The first thing you want to do is make your rolls of paper or cut your stalks of bamboo/reeds the correct length to fit your can. Next, use a thick nail and hammer to make a hole at the bottom of the can to thread the twine through. Paint the can if desired (bright colors will attract more bees.) Now, thread the twine through the hole and knot the end. Add your hollow structures inside the can, packing as tightly as possible. Lastly, hang your mason bee house wherever you want your bees to hang out. Please check the resource page below to see pictures of all the steps. This project is so simple and much appreciated by the bees!
