6 Amazing Easter Hat Ideas For Children

Creating exquisite Easter hats not only lets your child flaunt wonderful hats but also helps boost your kid’s creativity and imagination. The best part about creating Easter hats is the experience. Your experience will be enriching, whether you use materials available at home or expensive ones from the craft store. Brooke, a mother, recalls the time she made an Easter hat out of tulle for her daughter. She says, “(The hat) was so fun to make and not really hard and best of all it was as cheap as chips. I used an old headband, tulle, green felt for the grass, eggs & carrots, some wired butterflies and a soft rabbit from the discount store. I did hand sew all of this but if you had strong craft glue you could easily put it together without sewing (i).” You can use an assortment of materials for your Easter hat. So, here is how to make Easter hats for kids:
