First let me show you how I made this easy no sew bee costume! :)

You’ll need a few supplies:
black sweat shirt & pants
roll of bubble wrap
two sheets of yellow felt
hot glue gun & glue
black plastic headband
black pipe cleaners
black pom poms

First you will cut the felt into strips. Each piece of felt will make three strips. I ended up using 4 to make stripes on my costume. I just hot glued them in place with my glue gun. :)

For the wings I used some bubble wrap. I cut a piece of wrap & folded it in half. Then I just cut a wing shape. It’s almost shaped like an upside down heart ~ just a little rounder & not pointed on the top. Then I used my hot glue again. I put a line of glue right down the middle of the wings, & then I glued it on to the back of the shirt. Careful! It’s hot!

The last thing I did was make the antennas. I just used a plastic headband & twisted 2 pipe cleaners on the top. Then curled them around a pencil. Then I hot glued a pom pom on the top of each antenna. That’s it! All done. :)
