Barbie Beekeeper Costume

When toys can teach our kids about interesting careers, I’m all for it! Barbie has come out with a line of dolls that focuses on getting kids interested in careers through pretend play. Gone are they days when Barbie is just into Ken!

This year they asked if I’d design costumes to match these dolls and this beekeeper might be my fave!


What you’ll need:

  • White zipper sweatshirt
  • Jeans
  • White gloves
  • Safari hat
  • White paint
  • White tulle
  • Black, white, yellow felt
  • 1” Yellow pom-poms
  • ½” black pom-poms
  • Scissors
  • Hot-glue gun
  1. Paint hat white. Hot-glue white tulle to the edge, leaving about a 2” gap in the back.
  2. Patch: Cut shapes from black, white, and yellow felt and hot glue together. Hot glue to sweatshirt.
  3. Bees: Hot-glue black pom-pom to yellow pom-pom. Cut 2 thin strips of black felt and glue around the yellow pom-pom. Cut wing shape from white felt and glue to the back of the bee.
