A simple way to make an Easter bonnet is to just simply decorate a straw hat with all sorts of bits and pieces.

These can be stapled, tied or glued onto the hat.

Pipe cleaners can be used to make flowers to attach to the hat.

Don't forget those little fluffy chickens and bunnies you can find in the supermarket or thrift stores.
