It’s the last week of school before the Easter holidays, so that can only mean one thing – it’s bonnet making time. This year I thought we would try something a little different so this afternoon I helped Izzy turn her 99p hat into a cute Easter bunny. A princess Easter bunny, to be exact, as she decided that it had to be wearing a crown.

You will need: 

  • A bonnet
  • Cotton wool balls
  • PVA glue
  • White card
  • Pink paint or card for the nose and inside of ears
  • Black felt or card for eyes
  • Pipe cleaners
  • (For a princess bunny) coloured card and glitter glue

Step 1: Dip the cotton wool balls in PVA glue and cover the bonnet.

Step 2: Push 3 pipe cleaners into the hat and back out again to create the whiskers. This as a little fiddly but I used a metal kebab skewer to make two holes in the hat, to make it easier to push the pipe cleaners through.

Step 3: Cut out two bunny ear shapes from white card. Paint the insides of the ears pink, or cut out two shapes from pink card and stick them onto the ears. Glue onto the top of the hat once dry.

Step 4: Cut out a triangle for the nose, either from pink card or from white card and paint it pink, and glue onto the hat.

Step 5: Cut two circles of black card or felt for the eyes and glue onto the hat.

Step 6: To turn your bunny into a princess, cut out a crown from some coloured card and decorate with glitter glue. The glitter does take ages to dry – I had to scrape some off once Izzy had finished decorating it, otherwise it would never have dried as she had used so much. Once dry, stick the edges together to make a crown and slot over the ears.

Now I’ve got to make sure it stays in one piece until she goes to school on Thursday.
