Easter Bonnets are a lovely tradition to celebrate spring time. European tradition is that you wear flowers on your hat to celebrate new life and growth and celebrate spring. It is traditional for Ladies to wear Easter bonnets in the Easter Parade as a way of showing off who has the best Easter bonnet. There’s often a competition with a prize awarded to the person with the best Easter bonnet.
This week we’ve had lots of fun visiting schools, play groups and after schools clubs making Easter bonnets. Glass Jar Gifts Easter bonnets are full of fun and we hear of lots of success stories from customers contacting us to say their Easter bonnet won the Easter bonnet competition in the Easter parades. You can purchase an Easter bonnet kit here.
The kit contains an Easter bonnet, fluffy Easter chicks, Easter embellishments, wooden shapes, decorative flowers, tissue paper in spring colours, Easter ribbon, pipe cleaners, wooden carrots and craft pegs. The craft pegs are great for pegging messages to your Easter Bonnet, photographs or other fun Easter crafts you have made.
Bunny rabbits and lambs are often associated with Easter because of new life and new birth and new born bunnies and lambs being born at this time of year. Rabbits, bunnies and lambs are symbols and signs of good luck and new life.
There are lots of flowers associated with spring. You may wish to include these on your Easter bonnet too. Flowers Festivals are held all over the world at Easter time. White lilies reprsent purity and goodness.
