Easter is coming up, and that means it’s time to start thinking about your Easter bonnet!
Instead of buying a pre-made one, why not craft your own using a paper plate (or you can use a straw hat), glue, tissue paper flowers, chicks, bunnies, and plastic Easter eggs?
Crafting your own Easter bonnet can be a fun way to get into the spirit of the holiday while also creating something unique.
Plus, you’ll have a piece of headgear that no one else will have at the Easter Parade!
And the kids need one too for their Easter Bonnet parade at school! SimplifyCreateInspire has an awesome article that gives you 40 simple Easter Bonnet Ideas for kids.
Read on for some tips on how to make your own DIY Easter bonnet.
Start with the Base:
You can use either a paper plate or straw hat as your base. If you use a paper plate, cut out the center so that it fits comfortably over your head. If you use a straw hat, cover it with tissue paper so that it matches the colors of the decorations you plan to add later. You can also use a headband and attach decorations to it as well.
Once you’ve got your base ready to go, it’s time to move onto decorations!
Add Some Fun Stuff:
The possibilities are endless when it comes to what kind of decorations you can add to an Easter bonnet. Think chicks, bunnies (real or stuffed, or made out of felt or construction paper - which is probably best), ribbons, bows, and lots and lots of colorful tissue paper flowers (or any other type of flower you'd like).
Don’t forget about those plastic Easter eggs too—they’re perfect for adding color and texture!
Think about unique items as well, such as plastic dinosaurs, butterflies, or cars. You can even make a mini-Easter basket out of felt and attach it to your bonnet for an extra special touch.
Have fun with this part; there really is no right or wrong way to decorate an Easter bonnet.
Finish It Up:
Once you’ve added all the decorations you want, use some hot glue to secure them in place. And don’t forget about the ribbon! Tie a few ribbons around the brim of your hat or attach them to the side of it for some extra flair.
Once all of your decorations are in place and securely glued down (make sure they won't fall off when you wear your bonnet!), it's time to take a step back and admire your handiwork! You've just crafted something unique and special—your very own DIY Easter bonnet that is sure to turn heads at any spring celebration.
Now that your Easter bonnet is complete and ready to wear, show off your work of art by wearing it during an Easter parade, at church, or even just while you’re having fun with friends and family and watch as everyone marvels at how creative you are!
Creating an Easter bonnet doesn't have to be hard—or expensive!
All you need is some basic supplies like tissue paper flowers, plastic eggs, glue, and either a paper plate or straw hat as the base. With these few items in hand plus some creativity on your part, crafting an eye-catching Easter bonnet will be easier than ever before!
