Bees are beautiful beings and deserve to have a nice home. Since they give us all the honey in the world, provide your backyard bees with this Modern DIY Bee House. This DIY home is not only providing the bees a service, but because of its contemporary style, it will look adorable on the side of your home. This house is very easy to make using wood and a power drill. You want to create a good amount of holes so all the buzzing bees have a place to call home. Who knows, you may even end up with some fresh honey comb!

This is a Mason Bee house. They don't make honey so there's no way anyone will get a "fresh honey comb" from them! They ARE, however, a VERY important pollinator!

I love this Modern DIY Bee House craft. The directions are great and easy to understand with some nice pictures to show what your doing. I was thinking how on earth am I going to get a queen bee into my bee house? After reading the comments and answers I see this isn't for honey bees, but for Mason bees. These will work great for my garden just as well as honey bees. I have wild flowers growing all over my yard to get bees into my garden and this well hopefully help the Mason bees to come and lay their eggs for further bees coming to my garden. Thank you so much for sharing this free project.
