Rubber Toy Bee Turned into Glamorous Queen Bee

This little queen bee would be a great addition to a wreath or a sweet decoration for a tiered tray. I bought several at Dollar General to glam and jazz up in different ways.

I wanted to make this queen bee after seeing this done on Facebook by Debi Rigg on Studio MD AZ. I want to make another one with black and white checks in the future. I am practicing my checks on bigger projects first. This toy is too tiny for me to try right now. Practice, practice, practice.

I used Diamond Dust on her wings. It made a big difference. See below for the before during and after pictures.

Here she is WITHOUT Diamond Dust.
My Mom made the bee skeps in the background. One is made from wood and one is made from a recycled ENSURE can! She uses rope from the Dollar Tree and I put the little jewels and bees on them. LOVE!
Here they are side by side. Before and After.

Let your imagination run wild and paint one of these toys to match your decor or your project. Decorating with bees is so popular this summer.

Diamond Dusted Piglet Princesses on a Rose Gold Throne

I saw these sweet little pigs on a shelf at Hobby Lobby and thought they would look so special if I diamond dusted them. Of course they needed crowns too. Then I wanted a throne for them and it so happened that my Mom had this miniature doll chair that had yellowed over time. So I spray painted it a rose gold and added bling. I wish pictures would do Diamond Dust justice. It has SO SO much sparkle!

I don’t have any BEFORE pictures of the little piglets. But you can imagine that they were plain ceramic before the sparkle was added.

Here my Mom was successful at gluing the little crowns on top. She used E6000.
They really are darlings.
I asked my Facebook followers if I should leave the chair/throne rose gold and everyone said yes. I had thought about changing it to regular gold. The rose gold perfectly matches their little noses, eyes, ears, and hooves.
Here’s a picture before I added the bling to the throne.
Their throne needed something. I think this was the perfect enhancement.
Cuteness. Farmhouse Glamour!
Pretty Princess Piglets

I hope to encourage you to be creative. Use a product you may not have used before such as Diamond Dust. I bought mine from Amazon. I also bought the little crowns from Amazon. The pin on the throne is from Totally Dazzled.
