Bees Paint 15 wooden tooth picks black, then break each in half. Cut 30 ¾-by-2-inch strips and wrap each around a toothpick, making sure the pointed side is left exposed. Next, cut a small piece of yellow felt ½ wide to wrap around the body of the bee. Glue to the black felt, then glue a button. Glue a button to non-pointy end of the bee. Create the wings by folding a small piece of waxed paper in half and cutting out an oval shape make the wings from the fold. Open the wings and glue the fold to the center back of the bee. Glue or sew the bees to the sweatshirts and pants, and attach to the hat using wire.
