Holidays offer the perfect opportunity for making stuff, and as we were required to make Easter hats for church, the boys and I had some craft time after school last Thursday.
I wanted to keep things simple while at the same time giving them some freedom to make what they liked. The hats needed to be wearable as there is an Easter hat parade at church on Easter Sunday!
I decided to investigate Poundland as this is often a good place to get seasonal crafty bits and and pieces. I was not disappointed! There were several racks of Easter craft stuff, including hats for boys. Hooray for the Land of Pound!
So £20 and two carrier bags full of stuff later, I had enough to make 5 Easter hats and we actually had quite a lot left over!
Here are the hats we made!
Not to be outdone, I made one too! I also used a hat from Poundland. As it was a bit too small even though I have a tiny head, I made some cuts in the rim so that it would expand a little bit to fit my head. I also added a ribbon so that I could tie it on.
Instead of putting a ribbon around it, I used the flower garland I made a few weeks ago. You can read about that here! To attach it to the hat, I secured it with a few stitches at the front and at the back. Then I added chickens, lambs, flowers and stickers.
Now we are all set for the Easter hat parade!
