Add a little vintage charm to your walls with this free printable vintage bee poster.
Back in November (spring here in the southern hemisphere), I decided to plant a bunch of bee-attracting flowers in the courtyard. Over the next few months, I delighted in watching bees buzz around my garden every time I went to hang the washing out.
Now that winter well on its way, the bees have almost completely disappeared. Until the weather warms and they re-emerge, I decided to make some bee wall art so I could look at cute bees all winter long.
After scouring the internet for images, I eventually settled on using a picture from a book on British bees published in 1866 (you can find it here, if you’re interested). Using a combination of Photoshop and Illustrator, I cleaned up the original scan before re-tracing the drawing to create a high-quality print.
I framed my bee art using the wooden frame from a stretched canvas (tutorial here). You can buy similar pre-made weathered wood frames here and here. If wooden frames aren’t your thing, you could also try framing it using one of these affordable poster hangers or these DIY vintage poster scrolls.
I hope you enjoy this free printable! If you download it, I’d love to hear how you’re planning on using it in the comments below.
