Easy Easter Hat How-To: Prepare for the Parade in 5 Quick Steps

The Easter Hat parade doesn’t have to be a headache. It’s a fun opportunity to get crafty with your kids and come up with something they’ll enjoy showing off in the playground. Our tutorial makes it easy to create an eggcellent Easter Hat using our range of DIY Bonnet supplies.

You Will Need:

easter confetti, grass shred, pink mini eggs, two white rabbits, yellow chenille chicks and a white felt hat

Step 1

Glue the Easter Grass or Easter Shred to the top of the hat and press it down firmly to fix it in place. We used a hot glue gun for this project, but we recommend regular craft glue for younger kids.

Trim the stray ends of grass or shred that poke out around the top of the hat to neaten up the grass.

Step 2

Arrange the chicks and mini eggs in an alternating pattern around the brim of the hat. Glue each of them down one by one so that they are all secure.

Step 3

Once the glue on the top of the hat is dry, stick the two rabbits to the grass on the top of your hat.

You can add some chicks and eggs to the top of the hat too.

Step 4

Next, use your Easter stickers and place the stickers around the sides of the hat. Then, apply a thin layer of glue in certain areas and sprinkle your colourful confetti on the glue, section by section.

For the finishing touch, sprinkle any remaining confetti over the top of your hat.

Here’s some more Easter hat inspiration!

Give your Easter Hat an Aussie twist with this seasonal take on the iconic cork hat. Using real Easter Eggs may attract flies rather than keeping them away, so we recommend using our mini glitter eggs, and you won’t have to worry about them melting mid-parade.
