Make Your Own Easter Egg Hunt Easter Bonnet

I started thinking about what I was going to do for this year’s Easter bonnet as soon as I had finished doing last year’s one. It wasn’t until the end of January that I settled with an idea that I thought that my littlest one would like; it had to be something sweet, preferably with some sort of cute animal on it, which meant that my idea about making the bonnet into a giant cream egg went out the window. The result was a chick Easter egg hunt! I am really excited about this bonnet, and hopefully it will inspire you to go out and make one.

To make your own Easter Egg Hunt Easter Bonnet you will need:

 

  • Craft chicks – you can normally get these at any supermarket, Amazon or Hobby Craft
  • Craft flowers – ours came from Hobby Craft and John Lewis
  • Fimo polymer clay – available from Hobby Craft, John Lewis or most craft stores
  • Tissue paper
  • Cotton wool balls
  • Paint
  • Felt
  • Thread
  • Sewing needle
  • Glue
  • Bonnet
  • Masking tape

I have to apologise for the lack of photos and the quality of photos I did take in the construction of the bonnet, but I was doing it on the floor late at night.

1. Cut out the green felt to go around the rim of the bonnet.
2. Cover the hat with green tissue paper and then put the felt on the rim so that it covers any excess tissue paper.
3. You can glue the green felt into place, but I find that the glue comes through the holes in the bonnet. I prefer to sew it into place by making a small stitch at the edge of the rim and one towards the centre of the bonnet. It should create a zigzag effect on the underneath.

4. Poke the flowers in the bonnet; you may need to make a slight hole with the needle in the felt first before it will go through.
5. When they are all in place turn it over and bend the stems over to secure them.
6. Trim the excess stem and then place some masking tape over what is left – this is to stop the wearer from getting spiked when they wear it.

7. Mould the fimo clay into little eggs and a few baskets, then bake in the oven at 130c for 20 minuets on some baking paper.

8. Sew on you little chicks.
9. When your eggs have cooled glue them on and leave them to dry.

Now that I have finished making this year’s bonnet, I had better start thinking about what to do for next years one!
