In my Easter Bonnet

Once again it's time to strut our stuff in that time honored Easter Parade (although we march down Brown St. rather then Park Avenue!)

Oh I could write a sonnet, about your Easter bonnet
and of the girl I'm taking to the Easter Parade!

Bonnet Instructions
Heavy Paper Plates
Heavy Paper Bowl
Hot Glue
Hole Punch
Cut a hole from the center of the plate that the bowl will fit into. Punch two holes on each side for the ribbons (if you don't have a hole punch, just glue the ribbons between the plate and bowl).
After some trial and error I moved the punched holes closer to the center hole.
 It made the bonnet stay on their head better.
Hot glue the bowl and plate together. Add ribbon.
Cut various sizes of circles from different colors of cardstock. Cut the circles into spirals.
Tightly roll the spiral.
Slightly release the roll, hot glue the bottom so that it doesn't completely unroll.
Dab glue along the edges and sprinkle LIBERALLY with glitter.
(We add glitter LIBERALLY to everything!)
Add a hat band of crepe paper, tissue paper or ribbon.
Glue on Glittery leaves and flowers and...
Voila, a lovely Easter Bonnet (with all the frills upon it!).
Happy Spring
