Top Hat/Easter Headband Hat

Sofia's school will have an "Easter Hat" parade tomorrow, so they asked us to help the kids decorate a hat.
After showing Sofia some ideas, she picked a "headband top hat" this the name for it? dunno..

Well, here are the ( very cute)  inspirations:

So, off we go! Gather material. I tried to use things that I already had in the house. Just bought little eggs and chicks at the dollar store. Did not break the bank :)
For the top hat I used a small gift box from dollar store and some cut cardboard

Covered with felt

Top Hat!!!

Some tissue paper flowers

Finished bottom with felt and attached the hat to an old headband I covered with blue ribbon
Sofia made Easter/Spring themed drawings and  made a very very cute foam chick.
 She made some leaves, so I gave the top hat a touch of "Ascot" eccentricity hahaha

 How cute is the model?
Ready for the parade tomorrow!
