Karen here and I am sharing my Top Hat Easter Bonnet Craft. My nieces and I just love these little top hat facinators and had a blast making these for our dolls.

To make your own you will need:

-A Top Hat ( I get mine at Punch Place Plus)

-A low temp glue gun

-Doll sized Hairband (I get mine at Punch Place Plus)

-Felt Rick Rack or Ribbon

-Dollar Store Glitter Mini Easter Eggs

-Scissors

Step 1- Assemble all your supplies and plug in your glue gun.

Step 2- Measure out your rick rack or ribbon so that it goes around your mini top hat. Cut and then glue it into place.

Step 3- At the seem you just made place a dab of glue and put your first egg into place. I alternated mine pink, blue, green all around my hat, adding a dab of glue as I went until the entire brim was full.

Step 4- Remove any of the glue strings that may be on your hat.

Step 5- Turn the hat over and in the inside center add a dab of glue. Place your dolls hairband into place on the one side, holding it there until the glue sets. On the opposite side add another dab of glue and press the other side into place. Please not you will have to put your hairband into the hat and it will not sit on top as it has in previous crafts using the smaller hat. Once dry flip it over and remove any more glue strands you see and then you can place it in your dolls hair. I hope you enjoy making these hats for your dolls!
