You can create an Easter bonnet out of a plain straw hat you already have or buy a new one.

Tie your ribbon in a large yellow bow around the rim of the hat

Get small colorful flowers and attach them to the bonnet with fruits and leaves.

You can also add nuts, raisins and oats to your bonnet.

The best colors for the flowers are purple, fuschia, white and yellow. You can use small flowers but also add daffodils, tulips and/or lilies to your arrangement.

And you can tie small cinnamon sticks together with some dried orange to add to the flowers, fruits and nuts.
