An Easter bonnet with all the frills upon it: old-fashioned pretty for wear or wall

various 040

Most little girls enjoy donning a frilly, feminine Easter bonnet (at least long enough to have their picture taken) but these “Easter bonnets” also work as wall décor in feminine bedrooms or country-styled rooms. They can be especially striking when displayed against colored walls.  They are light enough that they are easily mounted to the wall (a pushpin will work) and can be easily brought down for pretend teas and dress-up parties. And they are super easy to “make”.easter bonnet 4

(Please note: if your youngster is still young enough that everything goes directly into the mouth these are probably not appropriate for wear unless  very closely supervised. Flowers and leaves may present a choking hazard.)
