The 15 Minute Fix: Repurposed Vintage Jello Mold Beehive



Happy Wednesday, Friends! Are you ready for another 15 Minute Fix?  This week I'm sharing a whimsical little jello mold project...

It's been a little while since I've shared a jello mold project. If you're new here, let me just say that although I've never once used them to actually make jello, I do have a penchant for repurposing the nifty little gadgets.  I find them all the time at yard sales and thrift stores and I especially like to find unique ones like these.  So when I saw them at an antique mall and the price was right, I snatched them up.  I knew right away what I wanted to create!

I hot glued them one on top of the other: 5 minutes.

Next, I cut a small circle from a chalkboard label I had on hand and stuck it on. Then, I hot glued this tiny bee magnet next to it: 5 minutes.

When I decided to make a beehive, I pictured this little bee on a spring on top, but it was too tall and looked awkward. So I hot glued a mini chalkboard on top, with the bee next to it: 5 minutes. I love seeing the whimsical beehive next to my backdoor, whether I am coming or going!

  13. Cecilia-

  14. You sure know how to re-purpose an item, how clever of you. Hoping I can find more of that little mold so can do couple of your projects. Have had several of molds since we lived in MT but never used them, held onto for some reason unknown to me, aybe so could make your bee skep. Don't see them here (Grand Junction, CO area) doggone it as would sure like to find more.
    Every summer I do a bee theme in living room for few weeks then change to one of other summer themes for while. Have several printables for bees, little things I use to decorate with. Your bee skep with bees is so darned cute, love it. Do those sell quickly for you?
    Love your blog and projects. Enjoy rest of week

  16. Just love your behive. How did you make the springy think for the bee beside the hive? So clever, all of it.
    Don't see many little molds around here. did get a set a few years ago but don't have any idea where I put them---the search is on!
