Easter Bonnet Parade

Every year in April or maybe late March, the school will organise a Easter Bonnet Parade for the primary kids. This is one event that gives me headache each year. For the past few years, my girls were either wearing any hats that I could find in the cupboard or simply nothing at all because the mummy is so not creative in arts at all. Yes, the best score I've ever had in arts was a D in my secondary school days !!

So this year, 3 days before the parade, I decided that maybe I could try to make something for the girls. After some searching & searching on Google, I got an easy idea of how to make a Easter bonnet. Off to Popular Bookstore on Wednesday, 10 mins there & Rm 7.20 spent, I got the materials.

When I started on making the bonnets, they weren't as easy as I thought !! There were measuring to do, flowers & leaves to print & loads of cutting to do. I spent 5 hours making the bonnets but over 2 days, as I have baking to do, as well as other errands to run. I finished with the last bits of gluing & sticking at 11.15 pm on Thursday night, much much later than my bedtime !!

I got 2 identital bonnets for the girls. By the time I finished, I told myself this will probably be the only time I'm making Easter bonnets................

To this flowery Easter bonnet.

This is my favourite, it's so gorgeous !

This is funny too !

Oh wow, you hand cut ALL those flowers?? I tot you die cut/punch 'em out! :P That's A LOT OF WORK!! They turned out great (I pretend that's not purple, hee hee), no doubt. With all the cakes that you've been turning out, it's hard to believe you got D in Arts!!!
