Once used to keep bees in the garden, bee skeps have become fashionable accents for cottage and herb gardens. Traditional bee skeps are made of coiled straw, but our little bee skep is solid resin with a painted finish. Matte finish and subtle details give it a natural look, especially when nestled in tiny thyme foliage. Each one is mounted on a long stem to keep it anchored in place. Pairs well with the Classic English Garden Bench and Rustic Garden Tools. Ideal for classic fairy gardens and miniature English garden scenes.
