Author CostumeBox / Posts / Published: 23/2/2016

The Easter Hat parade doesn't have to be a headache. It's a fun opportunity to get crafty with your kids and come up with something they'll enjoy showing off in the playground. Our tutorial makes it easy to create an eggcellent Easter Hat using our range of DIY Bonnet supplies.

You Will Need:

  • A Felt Top Hat or Bonnet or Glitter Top Hat
  • Easter Grass or Easter Shred in the colour of your choice
  • White or Pink Easter Rabbits (Pack of 2)
  • Easter Chick Decorations Pack of 24
  • Mini Glitter Easter Eggs in the colour of your choice
  • Easter Stickers
  • Confetti
  • Scissors
  • Craft Glue or a Glue Gun

Step 1

Glue the Easter Grass or Easter Shred to the top of the hat and press it down firmly to fix it in place. We used a hot glue gun for this project, but we recommend regular craft glue for younger kids.
Trim the stray ends of grass or shred that poke out around the top of the hat to neaten up the grass.

Step 2

Trim the stray ends of grass or shred that poke out around the top of the hat to neaten up the grass.

Step 3

Arrange the chicks and mini eggs in an alternating pattern around the brim of the hat. Glue each of them down one by one so that they are all secure.

Step 4

Once the glue on the top of the hat is dry, stick the two rabbits to the grass on the top of your hat.


You can add some chicks and eggs to the top of the hat too.

Step 5

Next, use your Easter stickers and place the stickers around the sides of the hat. Then, apply a thin layer of glue in certain areas and sprinkle your colourful confetti on the glue, section by section.

Step 6

For the finishing touch, sprinkle any remaining confetti over the top of your hat.

Now you can admire your handiwork while you wait for the glue to dry. Enjoy the parade!

Here's some more Easter hat inspiration!

Give your Easter Hat an Aussie twist with this seasonal take on the iconic cork hat. Using real Easter Eggs may attract flies rather than keeping them away, so we recommend using our mini glitter eggs, and you won't have to worry about them melting mid-parade.

Get started on this nifty Easter Cork Hat idea by shopping our great range of Glitter Top Hats including Gold, Silver, Pink and more coloured Glitter Top Hats!

And then get your hands on some of our Mini Glitter Easter Eggs in assorted colours to use as the "corks".

These colourful hats look very impressive and all you need is a top hat and some tissue paper. Our plastic top hats make an ideal base for a crafty flower arrangement and making the flowers couldn't be easier thanks to this simple tutorial by Hey Let's Make Stuff.

Baby chicks will put a spring in anyone's step! Add chenille chicks or bunnies to a basic bonnet for a quick and easy Easter parade fix.

This next interesting design by Polka Dots and Parties is actually a gift box inspired by The Mad Hatter. What could be more appropriate for an Easter Parade than a bunny wearing a hat?

Recreate this mad look with any of our Top Hats and Bunny Ears. Just add cards!
