We made this super cute Easter hat. Would you believe that it is made from a paper plate and paper bowl?!?!?! KJ had such a blast making this and I am so pleased with how it turned out. The best part is that it was super easy!!!!
Both books are about a special surprise that they find in Easter hats! (You can read my review of Miz Fannie Mae’s Fine New Easter Hat over on my “Brown Like Me” Book Review blog!) We enjoyed both books…so much so that we made our own Easter hat. So, here are the instructions in case you want to make your own as well!
Here is what we did: First turn the plate and bowl upside down. Put the bowl on the plate and trace the circle. Cut about an inch or so inside the circle…this makes it so that your hat is actually wearable!
Next, glue the bowl to the plate. We used a glue gun…because we didn’t want to wait long for it to dry. Then, paint the plate and bowl. We used a glossy, yellow acrylic paint so that we could get away with just one coat.
Finally, once the hat is dry, embellish it! KJ picked out the ribbon and the flowers and we attached it all using the glue gun.
Check out KJ wearing her homemade Easter bonnet!!! Believe it or not, I think she really has plans for wearing it to church Easter Sunday!!!
