Sometimes, all it takes is a little imagination, a few supplies & a happy little girl to create the cutest costume ~ ever! After she figured out what she wanted to BEE for Halloween, it only took some supplies around the house, some yarn, fun inspiration, an apple & a few treats to finish off the costume!

My BFF & I always drool over their ideas. We (she more than I) try to think of fun things we can do to add to Pottery Barn Kids’ ideas. So hence, the idea of a BEEHIVE hair do, was born!
Depending on the length of the your child’s hair, here is the supplies you’ll need to do a DIY BEEHIVE.
- black & yellow yarn
- Bumblebees from your local craft store (these were from Michael’s above)
- if your child’s hair is long enough the Hot Bun would work really well in creating a BEEHIVE look
- bobby pins or rubber bands to hold the hair in place
- an apple or a treat to keep your child still while creating the BEEHIVE
- comb or brush
Here’s our little Bumble Bee herself getting her “BEEHIVE hair on”
- Start by cutting the same length of yarn & grouping in clusters. Divide into 5-7 clusters. (depending on amount of hair)
- Have your little bumblebee put her costume shirt on, first!
- Part hair into 5 ponytails if hair is thin, or use the hot buns to pull hair up into a high bun.
- Give her an apple or a snack, to keep her occupied! – every important. ;)
- You want to secure the middle of the yarn cluster with the middle of the hair in the pony tail & start braiding or twisting them together.
- Apply bobby pins or rubber bands when needed.
- Once you’ve cluster the yarn & the hair together if you’re using the pony tail method, start forming the beehive.
- If you’re using the hot bun, just braid or twist the yarn clusters together & start wrapping the yarn into a beehive.
- Secure with bobby pins or rubber bands when needed.
- Attach bumblebees in various places through out the beehive with several bobby pins.
Dress in a yellow tutu, black tights or leggings, black shirt & wings & your bumblebee is good to go!
She’ll be all ready for all the Halloween festivities looking cute as can BEE!
