As Easter nears, it’s time for all the Easter craft fun to begin! For my first year as a school mum, this meant a few extra fun events to plan for. This included our first Easter bonnet parade on the last day of the first term. While some of my mum friends are cringing at the thought, I was excited! Plus it only took me 15 minutes to get organised!

A friend of mine gave me the idea of bunny ear headbands as an Easter bonnet alternative and with a total girly-girl like my little prep kid, a flower loaded headband is exactly what made her happy! So it’s a win-win for both of us really! And you can do the same!

The best thing about this Easter hat alternative is that it cost only a couple of dollars to make, with most of the materials already in my craft supplies. Best of all, it was easy to transport to school without getting damaged.

I can’t even count the number of rolling Easter eggs I’ve seen on the floor on Easter hat parade day! None of that for us… although it does make a good excuse to eat the leftovers.

Here’s how to make your own DIY Easter bunny ears headband:

You Will Need:

  • A bunny ears headband (try your local discount store)
  • Artificial flowers, leaves and other decorations
  • Glue Gun & glue sticks
  • Optional – Felt or fabric strip

I had all these flowers in my drawers already from my scrapbooking days, which is something I don’t often do these days. I also had felt and a glue gun already too. The headband cost me $2 from The Reject Shop here in Australia. Nothing fancy. 

Decorating Your Easter Headband

Spend some time working out how you want your flowers and leaves to be displayed on the headband. I played around with a few different styles before I finally decided on the look I wanted.

Once you know the position you want them all in, glue each item one by one onto a semi-circle scrap of felt. Alternatively, you could use fabric or you could glue your flowers directly onto the headband. I wanted to make sure they held well, which is why I used the felt backing.

Glue your felt onto your headband, making sure it isn’t sitting too low. This may impact how the headband sits on your child’s head so making sure it will sit firming once glued. And once your flowers are in place, you are ready to roll!

My school kid was at school during our mini Easter craft session so I had to get her little sister to model for me! Now she wants her own so it looks like I’m headed back to the shop this week to get another headband. Silly me… of course they both want one!
