Challenge 51-Out of a Hat

A very warm welcome to my blog-always great to read what you say about the things that I make. We have snow and ice here again this morning so I won't be venturing far.

Another Thursday already-hope your week has gone well and you are ready to join us for another challenge at Out of a Hat

This week the challenge is Easter Bonnet so you can do anything at all that has a fancy hat in it. I did look up Easter bonnet and it didn't say it had to be a bonnet and the ones I saw were mostly hats.

This is the one I made

I needed a model so I put a face on a polystyrene egg I had bought ages ago-I didn't imagine what it would be used for and I bought a packet of smaller ones as well so watch this space lol. I stuck a long stick into the 'egg' and put it into the nice bottle that I had bought at the carboot sale last year. Then added wool hair, pinned on the pink ribbon and made a hat to fit the head.

It was all fun from there as I added all sorts of things that I had found in the hedgerows and some things I had made or bought The feathers I coloured with Promarkers--there are loads of white feathers along the seafront as there are lots of seagulls.

This was real fun for me and I hope you will join in and have some fun yourself. Tracey , Janet and Sandra made wonderful things so do visit their blogs to see what they made.

I would also like to enter this in Try it on Tuesday Challenge where they also have Hats and Easter bonnets as the theme.

Have a lovely day everyone
