From a $15 bonnet to a 20c cap that looks like a fried egg: Proud parents show off their incredible Easter hat creations

  • A number of Australian parents are sharing their children’s Easter hats
  • Kmart has launched a $5 DIY kit complete with stickers for the time-poor parent
  • There were a number of recurring motifs, with eggs and bunnies galore
  • One mum even used a 20c yellow cap she found to make a fried egg bonnet

Australian parents are leaving nothing to chance for this year’s Easter hat parade – with fried eggs, stick on chocolates and even Pokemon balls being used to garnish their children’s festive bonnets.

For one day of the school year parents are expected to conjure up magical bonnets and caps from craft items they can find around the house – before their child models the final design in front of their pupils.

Mother Emily Rose Harvey spent just $15 building her daughter’s incredible hat, posting the result to a Kmart Facebook group.

This headband was an easy buy from Kmart

And complete with the hessian bag look, this was a sure-fire winner

‘What to do on a rainy day? Make next week’s Easter hat for my daughter. These are all Kmart products, all hand stitched and glue gunned down,’ she wrote

Another mother from Queensland’s Sunshine Coast went for an even easier approach by using a 20c yellow cap she had purchased weeks ago.

Today’s Easter parade hats for my kiddies were brought to you by two yellow caps I found at the op-shop for 20c each,and a curvy cut-out of scrap polystyrene packaging! Eggs-over-easy this year,’ she said.

How did Mrs Harvey make her daughter’s $15 Easter hat? 

Total time 25-30 min 

Materials:

1 x headband- beauty section

1 x hessian ribbon – craft section

1 x gum leaf stem – home section

1 x Easter egg stem

1 x glue gun

1 x plastic sheet 

Method:

I used the black plastic base out of a Coles reusable bag and cut it to size, then I threaded it through the headband and used a glue gun to hold it down before covering it with hessian and gluing that down.

I then shortened the gum leaf stem, twisted it into the shape of a halo before stitching it to the base.

I cut the hessian into three strips, each strip folded like a paper fan. Then, I arranged all three fan strips into a ‘nest’ shape and glued it to the base.

Then I arranged the eggs on top and glued those into place. I glued leaves over any joins to hide any imperfections or sharp corners.
