Our Mason Bee home! Isn’t this adorable? The house itself is made from scrap wood, and my husband suggested the little bee emblem, which I did with our woodburner. We’re making the tubes from rolled newspaper, brown craft paper and empty bath tissue and paper towel tubes. We plan to add sticks, twigs and even a pine cone or two to fill in empty spots and give the Mason Bees some landmarks for marking their tubes.
