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.

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

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!)

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.

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

Charlie chick. Our favourite story when the kids were toddlers and the inspiration for our bonnet! Made by my 6 year old.

MamaFry Thu 28-Mar-13 13:59:00

Angry bird. Made with my 9 year old. Still vacuuming up the feathers!!

Hi, saw this photo on Pinterest, and I "recreated" it for my daughter's Easter bonnet, we won 1st prize for her year group! So thank you so much for the inspiration! X
