To Create The Easter Hat/Bonnet You Will Need:

  • One Hat/Bonnet
  • Ribbon
  • Embellishments - we chose stickers, coloured easter chicks and felt rabbits

Now for the Fun Part

Take one hat of your choosing. We decided on a pink hat from a well known pound store and placed a ribbon round it. We stuck this in place with double sided sticky tape. Then I opened the pack of felt rabbit embellishments we had to hand and added a little double sided tape to the backs of them. My daughter has got used to the tape and can often help with peeling one side of the tape off but these embellishments were a bit challenging and it wasn't easy to peel off the paper often the whole piece of tape came off! We got there in the end though and lined them all up along the ribbon including the odd sticker.

I let my daughter continue to go crazy with the stickers and cover the whole thing. Talking about gaps and placement as she covered it all. Then we got out the chicks in various colours and put a bit of double sided tape on their feet and stuck them to the hat. She loved grouping them together and handing me the chicks before she placed them randomly round the hat.

  1. Ahh! That is fantastic. Well done.
    My youngest is making them at school this year. She has all the chicks and things to take and she can't wait.

  3. What a truly beautiful Easter hat, I could never get things to stick to those type of hats! My kids are all too old now but I remember when my 12 yr old was in nursery (so a long time ago now) I made her a bonnet out of cereal boxes and painted it. Then I let her go crazy sticking things all over and finished it of with a ribbon to tie under her chin. It was a bit over the top but she won first prize. The following year I asked her if she wanted to make another one and she replied " no, mummy, let's give another child a chance of winning this year." Bless her, haha.

  6. This is so precious! I was all about Easter Bonnets when I was young! I love watching old MGM films like Easter Parade and seeing how extravagant and gorgeous the hats would be. I'm so sad that tradition has passed on for adults! Can't wait to make some for my little girl!

  7. This looks lovely Helena. We made ours using pva glue and it looks a bit of a mess compared to yours! I'll remember double sided sticky tape for next year! Thanks so much for sharing with #DreamTeam x
