After distressing my first-born with an over-the-top bonnet last year, I decided to take a minimalist approach for 2012.
I found this headband form at my local craft shop, covered it in some vintage fabric that I think looks delightfully like a grassy, flowery field. Then made a bit of cardboard banner and glued two little chicks on.
You should have seen the relief on aforesaid daughter’s face when I showed it to her. I had discussed it with her beforehand and we had decided on 2 chicks rather than 4,000 but I could still see she was happy that it was, as promised, relatively understated.
PS: The bunny poo – which came from here –
went down a treat and I think I’ve avoided a caning by the headmaster. Bit of a pity really.
