I have no interested in a swarm of bees – unless they are adorable, harmless and made of out of paper. It helps if they are super easy to create and take only a few seconds! Today, I’m ringing in Spring with two garlands that you are going to love. The first is a paper bumble bee garland that you can create in just minutes. The second is a daisy garland that I created on Facebook Live! Just scroll down to watch the video and see how simple these are!
