You Will Need
- A large straw hat with a wide brim
- Trimmings, like ribbons and lace
- Decorative doodads
- A hot glue gun and safety pins
- Plenty of creativity
Get a hat
Buy a large straw hat with a wide brim.
Tweak the theme
Tweak the theme, which is the beginning of spring. Tiptoe through the tulips? A Beverly Hillbillies Easter? Seventies flower power?
Gather trimmings—lace, ribbon, bows, scarves, buttons, feathers—whatever you can think of.
No Easter bonnet is complete without blooms, but if you really want to stand out, visit the florist and buy fresh flowers.
Do a dry run
Arrange and rearrange your hat until you have a pleasing composition.
Get out your hot glue gun—and safety pins, if you need them to anchor heavy or awkward items—and get to work.
Attach a ribbon to either side of the hat and tie it under your chin—now stand up straight, hold your head high, and strut the parade route like a Milan runway.
