MAKE AND CREATE: More tips to make the perfect Easter Bonnet!

28 March 2019

With Easter just around the corner, it’s time to get the old arts and crafts box out and start preparing for the annual Easter parade. To ease you into Easter, Tweed City Shopping Centre has put together some top tips to help you decorate the ultimate Easter bonnet and earn some bonus points when your child will be sure to have the coolest bonnet in the school Easter parade.

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle

Reuse your old egg cartons and make a unique hat like this one! All you need is glue, feathers, baby chick decorations and some eggs for good measure. If you need to stock up on supplies Kmart and Big W at Tweed City is the place to go.


Our Picks:

Kmart - Shredded Paper $1.00 
6 Pack Multi-Coloured Chick $2.00
Big W - Artwrap Multi Coloured Easter Confetti $2.00 


Nest is Best

If you’re short on time, why not breathe new life into an old hat you no longer use. Decorating hats is a great way to let the kids show off their creative flair and still have something they can wear repeatedly. Kmart has plenty of craft options while Daiso has many stationary options from as little as $2.80

Our Picks:
Kmart: Mixed Pom Poms $5.00
6 Pack Multi-Coloured Chick $2.00 
12 Pack Glitter Shakers $5:00

Keep it simple, silly

If you’re stuck for ideas and have left your bonnet making until last minute, these easy to make Bunny Ears are for you! All you need is a paper plate, a pair of scissors and some cheap colouring pens from the Super Savers Discount Store and you’re good to go.



Tweed City Shopping Centre will be holding Easter Bonnet making classes and other craft activities over the school holidays from 10am-3pm from the 8th – 20th April.
