Looking for some simple Easter hat ideas?
I have 4 for you that make use of the simple old paper cup.
Miss 5 is currently designing and making her hat for her first ever Easter hat parade at school.
I had to “gently” convince her that maybe she should rethink her idea about basing it around Christmas trees.
Do your kiddo’s school hold an Easter hat parade?
I’m always looking for ways to repurpose kiddy artwork.
We made these flowers from painted paper for my sister’s Baby Shower.
I first posted about them over on Red Ted’s blog.
We still have bouquets of them all over the house.
The first step for all these Easter hats involves painting the paper cup in a colour of your choice.
Punch a hole on either side of the hat. String through some yarn and this is how you will hold your hat in place.
Miss 5 also determined that we should pull her hair into a bun so that the hat can sit snugly over the bun. The kid is a genius.
For the flower tower, we glued some of our paper flowers to craft sticks.
We then used hot glue to fix these flowers to the back of the hat. (ADULT SUPERVISION, YO!)
Secure with tape if you feel it needs it. Cover these sticks and tape with more painted paper flowers. Glue painted flowers around the hat. Voila! Doneskis.
We posted about our Eric Carle-inspired eggs here.
We hot glued one to the base of the paper cup. Then use toothpicks to connect the eggs into a tower.
It’s a Leaning Tower of Eggs!
Happy parading, everybody!
