How to make an Easter bonnet
To make an Easter bonnet you will need:
- A bonnet or old sun hat
- Large and small wired paper flowers
- Easter egg nests
- Fluffy chick decorations
- Hot glue gun
You can buy a range of these Easter bonnet supplies from Poundland.
1. Begin by separating out the paper flowers. Place six large paper flowers around the brim of the bonnet. Push the wire through the woven fabric of the hat and push up towards the top of the hat. Heat up the hot glue gun and apply it to the wire on the inside of the bonnet to secure it in place.
2. Now add the small paper flowers amongst the larger blooms. Follow the instructions in step 1 to glue the flowers onto the Easter bonnet.
3. Take some mini Easter egg baskets, remove a couple of the eggs and replace them with some fluffy chicks. Glue gun to keep in position. Arrange on the brim of the bonnet at the end of the row of flowers and stick it down with the glue gun.
4. Position a couple of fluffy chicks amongst the flowers, as though they've just wandered out of the nest. Use your glue gun again to stick them down.
