Easter wouldn't be complete without chocolate eggs and homemade Easter bonnets. We'd love to see your forays into millinery craftship. Post pictures of your eggcellent headgear here and on Thursday 28 March we'll toss them all in a bonnet and pull one out. The winner will receive a gorgeous Montezuma's Easter hamper containing chocolate bunnies, eggs, buttons and other goodies.

PLEASE NOTE: It's possible we'll love your photos so much that we select a few for a picture gallery or a Pinterest board. Please only post a photo if you're happy for us to use it in these places.

If making an Easter bonnet is completely beyond your ken, take a look at our simple Easter bonnet ideas guide.

Child will not stand still for picture, but you get the idea... The hat I made from paper mache, covered it in a cheap yellow duster. It is supposed to be a chick coming out of a shell...

Here it is off the head.

This is our first joint effort at Easter bonnet. Sophia (soon-to-be 3) had lots of fun decorating it with eggs, chicks and flowers.

Bigspring Thu 21-Mar-13 20:51:13

Lenny decorated this himself!

Our Easter Duck bonnet - we have a duck race each year at Easter where we release hundreds of plastic ducks in the river. Great fun and brilliant fundraiser. Don't worry, we do capture them all at the bridge. Our bonnet is reflecting the great race

Last year I made something small and intricate. It was ignored I think I've gone too far the other way this year and the Reception Class is going to be having Donnie Darko type nightmares. ho Hum.

My 4yo DD made this all by herself, except for the cutting out. she thoroughly enjoyed herself doing it too and is very pleased with her creation. Proud mummysmile

This is my Humpty Dumpty Easter bonnet.

LilMissEmmylou Mon 25-Mar-13 21:19:15

Hand frayed mulberry paper, diamante flowers and all! This hat took us hours and went in on the Monday to school as per their request. DD had the Dr on Friday morning...which turned out to be the easter parade and guess what? Due to her not being in until 9:30 she missed out as they refused to judge her hat without her being in sad I still think it totally would have won smile

Hopezibah Tue 26-Mar-13 20:52:01

My son loves Trashies/ Trashpack toys and so that is where he got his inspiration from for his Easter Bonnet! And he added Easter chicks hanging down instead of the corks you get on Aussie hats. xxx

Harry's easter hat (not quite a bonnet!)

Hopezibah Wed 27-Mar-13 19:35:11

And here is my other son's Easter Bonnet he made all by himself today. He has just turned 7 years old. xxx

DanielMummy Wed 27-Mar-13 21:52:51

My 4yr old son enjoyed making his Easter hat

pollywollydoodle Wed 27-Mar-13 22:42:07


Last year's "bunnet" was so popular with dd that it is now our Easter table decoration. We may have to drape a cloth over it before we eat though

grabaspoon Wed 27-Mar-13 22:49:23

We made this one.

pilky2006 Thu 28-Mar-13 13:19:07

A giant creme egg. Just wish it was made of chocolate. xx

MamaFry Thu 28-Mar-13 13:56:58
