Girl's DIY Chicken & Egg Easter hat Fascinator for School Parades


Last-minute Easter Hat DIY idea that is sure to impress!
Here is an adorable chick and egg design that you can make at home with little time.



SUPPLIES FOR YOUR CHICKEN EASTER HAT
  • Different size craft chickens and baby chicks
  • Little eggs
  • Headband
  • Felt
  • Tulle net
  • Sequins
  • Glue, scissors & stapler

STEP 1
Cut a circle out of felting with 4 slits to slide headband through.
With a rectangle piece of felt, cut a zig-zag line to use for the grass on the hat
Stick the felt to the headband



STEP 2
Cut your tulle net into a long strip.
With your tulle, fold it over on one edge, in about 2 cm sections. Continue this & staple as you go. While you are folding, you need to start moving your folds to form a circle, so the tulle starts forming a bowl-like circle shape. 


STEP 3
Staple the middle piece of the tulle net to the felt base




STEP 4
With your zig zag piece of felt, cut down the centre of of the triangle to create more strands of grass

STEP 5
With the felt strips, start gluing on top of the net in circle patterns, keep gluing as you go, adding more felt pieces as needed




STEP 6
Glue in a large Chicken in the centre, I found wind up one.
With 2 strands of grass felt pieces, fold over the feet and glue, this will secure the chicken to the base more and stop it moving.





STEP 7
Glue on your baby chicks and eggs around the main chicken


STEP 8
Glue sequins to tulle net




TA DAH...... Fab right?
