Easter Bonnet Craft

Every year my sister-in-law hosts an Easter bonnet party.  All of the guest come with Easter bonnets that were homemade and there is a contest for the wildest or most artistic hat.  The crazier, the better! This would be fun to do for other holidays.  Maybe you could create a 4th of July hat or a Christmas hat!

Start with a base hat.  The pink hat we bought from Target and my hat we bought from Michael's craft store.

Tie ribbon and tulle around the hat.  Use hot glue to adhere in places.

We tied on the Care Bear with floral wire.  It was tied loosely, so Daria can take out the Care Bear and exchange it with another stuffed animal if she wants.

Tuck flowers into the hat or poke through the tulle to secure.  Hot glue can be used to secure things.  We bought flowers, sparkly eggs, ribbons and the purple stuffed bunny from the dollar store.

My crazy wild Easter bonnet.

Have you made artistic hats like this before?  I'd love to see them!

Thanks for reading!  Best wishes, Marcia
