Easter Bonnet tutorial

“Now we’re going to make a really cute Easter bonnet. And I’m going to start with a wide piece of pink tulle. Oh, actually, I’ll start by putting my Bowdabra Bow Wire in, which I folded in half and tucked the ends underneath. Then what I’m going to do next is take my tulle, center it and scrunch down. Tulle’s a little bit more difficult to work with, but I’ll just scrunch it in. And just push that down.

Next, I’m going to take a second piece of tulle, which just kind of flew into the camera. And I’m just doing exactly the same thing with my white tulle, and just scrunch it down into my Bowdabra. We’re making a pretty big scrunchy bow.

After scrunching down, I’m going to take my mesh I’m just going to just scrunch my pink mesh into the Bowdabra. Mesh ribbon, however,  gets caught on everything. So, I’m just going to scrunch that down in there. Now, just push everything down in the Bowdabra.

To finish, I’m going to end with this really pretty sparkle tulle, and just scrunch this in. So, we’re doing a lot of scrunching with this bow. This bonnet reminds me of one of my favorite movies, which is Easter Parade and how everyone walked down the boulevard with their Easter Bonnets.

Finishing your bonnet

Lastly, scrunch it all down grab my Bowdabra Bow Wire and bring it through the loop. Then I hold my bow down and pull my wire really tight while it’s still in the Bowdabra. I Separate my ends and bring them around to the back and I’m going to tie a knot.

Finally, I’ll just sort of fluff out my tulle, and fluff everything out. Then, I’ll take my really pretty little bonnet, cut my ends off my bow and put some glue here. I have to use a pretty hefty dab of glue. I’m just going to glue this onto my bonnet and push it down pretty tight so it stays. And now you have an absolutely adorable Easter Bonnet.
