Easter hat parades are something that gives me anxiety and fills me with dread (well anything where I have to make something really). You see, I am the least crafty person on this planet and my sons will confirm this with you in regard to my erm… attempts at making things with them. Decor, interiors, cooking and gardening are no problems. Anything to do with craft, a resounding noooooo.
So when I was contacted to see if I would like to try my hand at one of the gorgeous hats above, with the promise they would be easy to make, I was a tad sceptical but actually, it was really easy. It takes about an hour to complete and is so easy, even I handled it like a pro!
White Knight paints in collaboration with Bear and Sparrow, an Australian owned, designed & handmade boutique children’s décor business, has come up with a fun project that parents & kids can work together on. Create a lovely hat for the upcoming school Easter parades, and then even re-use it as a stunning table centrepiece for family meals over the Easter holidays.
What You Will Need:
• White Knight Squirts gloss spray paint – » Pink » Sky Blue » White » Bright green » Fuchsia
• 50cm square piece of AstroTurf
• Thick cardboard box
• PVA Wood glue (or a glue gun)
• Roll of corrugated cardboard wrap – you can also use a large cardboard box if you don’t want to buy a whole roll
• Bamboo skewers
• Dust mask
• Plastic Easter eggs x 8
• Green braid ribbon x 1 metre
• Plastic daisy stem
• White pom-pom (or you can make your own)
