I know this isn’t your typical Easter Bonnet but my daughter didn’t want a hat. What is the mom to a diva to do? Well, make her something fancy. The best part is this is a craft that kids can do.
Ribbon, Scissors, head band, ribbon, tulle, imagination
This is the famous bowdabra … I love mine but you do not need one for this craft. It is for those of us that need help with this stuff. It also is helpful when you have little crafters working with you.
Darice BOW1003 Bowdabra Bow Maker and Craft Tool <—- you can buy one if you want
If you want to see how I made them you can check out my you tube video. It is os much easier to explain when you see it. The point is you can whip these up and place them in birthday gifts, easter baskets, princess party favors, and dance competition head gear. They are a favorite craft in our house and we just keep buying headbands at the $1 store. Then we keep our crafting scraps and recycle them into something adorable. You take the headband and tie your scraps on with the ribbon then you curl the ribbon. It takes me about 2 minutes but it takes a little longer for my 4 year old to make hers. The picture above is of a headband that she made with my help. I had to tie it but she cut the scraps and stacked them This is a super craft and it is a great Easter Bonnet for the child that doesn’t want a traditional hat.
I would also like to remind you that no matter what they create be proud of them. Enjoy the time you spend with them and keep on crafting! If you have a moment pin our post so other can make something pretty for themselves or someone else.
