Paper Bowl & Plate Easter Bonnets

Paperplatebowleasterbonnets.jpgOnce a month at work, we have a pizza party to celebrate all the company birthdays for the month. They bring in a variety of different flavored party pizzas, salad and cakes & cookies. I love this about my job. On this same day, there is always a theme. This past week the theme was crazy hats. I have a large floppy sun hat that I wanted to dress up a bit to give it a little more of a Derby look. I asked my mother-in-law if she had any old ribbon that I could borrow to jazz up my hat. Did she ever? She brought me over two full bags of ribbon. I not only found exactly what I was looking for, I found an inspiration. With all of the beautiful pastel lace ribbon & with the day of the hats, it brought to mind Easter bonnets. As a child I always wore an Easter bonnet on Easter. I love hats, always have & now my daughter is following in my footsteps. Tonight’s fun mommy & daughter project…yup, you guessed it, it is Easter bonnets.

What you will need:

Paper plates

Paper bowls

Water colors


Plastic flowers or other embellishments

Elmer’s glue


Paint your bowl using a color of your choice

Paint your bowl using a color of your choice



With a pair of scissors cut out the inside of the paper plate.


Paint your plate & let the bowl & plate dry


Place the painted bowl over a stack of extra bowls


Using glue, glue the paper plate to the bowl by putting the plate over the bowl as shown. Place another stack of bowls over the top to aid in keeping the pieces together as they dry.


Pick a ribbon to use for your hat.


Glue a piece of ribbon around the hat


Choose some embellishments


Glue your embellishments to your hat


Let your hats dry & then it is dress up time.

This is a cute, fun & easy craft that you can do with your child. If your kid likes hats as much as mine does, they will love it.
