We continue our Easter with The Jot Girls projects PLUS today’s project is also our Tuesday Tutorial.
Hey everyone, its Raquel Bowman here and today I am going to be sharing with you two simply adorable little Easter bonnets (with a twist) that you can whip up for your little ones this Easter. We have an easter bonnet parade this coming week with our playgroup, so for me it was a perfect way to gather some crafty supplies and get making.
YOU WILL NEED:
- Bunny ears
- Craft items such flowers, feathers, buttons, bows, etc.
- a hot glue gun
I created a boy bunny headpiece and a girl one, simply because I have a little boy and a little girl. This shows that you can create these cute accessories this Easter for either a boy or girl, just by changing what craft items you may use on them.
For my daughters bunny ears I delved into my stash of paper flowers by Cocoa Vanilla Studio. I mainly used the flowers and bows from the Free Spirit and Hello Lovely collections. Aren’t they just stunning!?! I also purchased a cute little bunny nest from a local discount store to add to the ears. The actual bunny ears were also from a discount store and are super easy to find in most stores, including chain stores, around Easter time.
I have a cordless battery operated glue gun by American Crafts that made this process so easy. I simply turn it on at the switch, wait a few minutes for it to heat up and can get adhering. To begin with I adhered the nest to the ears as that was the largest piece and more of the statement item of the ears. I then knew I would work around that one piece.
I then worked my way either side of the headband adhering the flowers. I created an accent on one of the ears by adding and layering two of the Cocoa Vanilla Studio bows.
There were a couple of blank spots so I delved into my flower stash and found some smaller white blooms to fill them up. And I found that cute bunny button (from D-lish Scraps) and added that too!
Here is the finished product, super cute!
For my sons headpiece I gathered crafty items such as feathers and foam eggs. I wanted to create an Indian inspired headpiece after seeing an idea on Pinterest. To create a centre piece I would need some felt to reinforce where I was going to adhere feathers.
I used the hot glue to adhere the felt to the center and then began to adhere my feathers.
I continued adding feathers until the centre was filled. I also added a couple of blue feathers to tie in the blue of the ears. To finish I add three of the specked foam eggs to the very centre.
Here are the finished ears for my little man.
Of course I couldn’t finish the post today without my little models showing them off!
Getting photos of my little man proved tricky, ha. So here is an outtake.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing how these little Easter headpieces came together. As you can tell, they were pretty easy to put together and apart from the ears I had most bits and pieces in my scrapbooking stash.
