I made my 10 month old a Homemade Baby Honey Jar Costume so she could be a part of the Pooh gang. My friends and I were pregnant and had our babies around the same time and decided on the Pooh gang theme for their first Halloween. All the characters, except for Eeyore, were taken and I didn’t want to put her in an Eeyore costume. So I decided on the hunny jar! Ha!
When I was pregnant I bought a pumpkin costume on clearance ($3!!) thinking that she could be a pumpkin for Halloween. Instead I turned it inside out, added my own details (bees, honey drips,lid knob, and HUNNY lettering), and VOLIA! A most adorable Hunny Jar for the Pooh gang theme!
Our little Hunny jar and the Pooh gang got a lot of “Ohs and Ahhs” when at the neighborhood fall festival. Her hunny jar costume was a hit!
Greatest thing is that she can still be a pumpkin. I just have to turn it outside in! Two costumes in one!
Felt – light blue, beige, yellow, black, Stuffing (for the honey drips, and bee on the jar lid for and 3D effect) Chenille Stem (for the floating bee on the lid) Googly eyes for the bees Sewing Machine (or you can hand sew too!) Fabric Glue Onesie Brown Leggings
My wife and son were dressing as bees for Halloween. My parents (“Grandma and Grandpa”) joined in as beekeepers leaving me to be… a honeycomb? No. Maybe a hive? No. Wait! A pot of honey!
The body of the Pot of Honey Costume is a giant plastic pot from the garden department at Home Depot. I used an X-ACTO knife to cut arms holes in the sides of the pot. Next I sprayed Great Stuff brand insulating foam sealant around the top of the pot to create a dripping honey effect. Careful with this foam! We’ve permanently stained the pavers in our backyard with this! I did one layer at a time, allowing each layer to dry before adding more.
We added decorative wooden bees from Michaels to the wet foam. The lid of the pot of honey is the base of the pot simply turned upside down on my head, again sprayed with insulating foam sealant for the honey look. The honey pot label is an image we found online, printed out and taped to the pot. The finishing touch of the honey pot stirrer is a dowel and three wooden furniture discs screwed together.
Pot of Honey Costume: A Sweet Success!
