Bee Hive Costume. Ok for those of you who asked. This is how we started the beehive. Two laundry baskets! I didn't photograph the entire process, but you can kind of get the idea of what I did here. The part that is not shown is how I wrapped the foam in burlap and made long rolls of them and attached to the laundry basket with twine. I noticed most beehives i have seen look like piles of poo. So I wanted it to look more like the cartoon beehive so I covered that with the yellow tulle.
