DIY Garden Gift: 99% Free Home-Made Bee Cozy

The Gardenist

Every year I endeavor to keep costs down and seasonal spirits high by making a few gifts rather than pulling out the credit card. I have the best of intentions but often find myself (somewhere around the 23rd) with not enough time. This year will likely be no different, but while I am still in the good intentions stage (it is Dec 4, after all — last minute panic shopping is still weeks away) I have my eye on a really sweet garden project.

Not only will this be a lovely handmade addition to any garden, but the bees and bugs who will take up residence will love the gift as well. I'm thinking this can be done in a weekend day —surely a better option that hanging out at the mall at this time of year, don't you think?
