Welcome spring and Easter with this flowery bonnet that’s wearable! The beautiful blooms on the brim are made out of coffee filters.
Fresh flowers are a sure sign of spring. This colorful bonnet will brighten any spot in your house. Wear it if you like!
Cover your art area with recycled newspaper. Using Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils, draw a large circle on posterboard. This will be the brim of your bonnet. Ask an adult to cut it out with Crayola Scissors.
Draw a circle in the middle of the brim that’s slightly smaller than your paper bowl. Ask an adult to cut out the circle.
Put Crayola School Glue around the rim of the bowl. Attach it upside down to the opening in your brim. Air-dry your hat.
Use Crayola Washable Watercolors and a Crayola Watercolor brush to paint your bonnet. For light colors, use more water. For darker hues, use less water. Mix colors if you like. Air-dry your hat.
Paint coffee filters in a variety of bright flower and leaf colors. Air-dry the foliage.
Fold each filter in half and in half again. Hold at the point. Open the folds into flower petals or leaves. Glue flowers and leaves all around the brim.
For ribbon streamers, watercolor a design on paper. Air-dry the paper. Cut into long strips. Glue strips to the back of your bonnet. What a striking spring decoration!
