Mum’s attempt to make giraffe Easter bonnet for son results in ‘Penis Hat’.

With Easter just around the corner, many mums and dads will be helping their little ones put together an Easter bonnet for their school parade.

Like blogger, Mrs Mombastic, who attempted a giraffe hat for her son.

But it didn’t quite turn out as intended.

“I told my son that he could do whatever he wanted. I was so full of hope. So… so… so…. foolish,” she wrote.

“A giraffe!” He declared with a sparkle in his eye. “Giraffes are my favourite animal mummy!”

“My husband tried to put him off the idea. Sticking Easter eggs in a nest on top of the hat would be FAR more sensible.”

“Two bonnets in the bin, lots of papier mache, super glue, gaffer tape and many other failed attempts later, my son and I came up with this…

“Ladies and gentlemen, I give you: ‘The Penis Bonnet’.”

“My husband laughed.I cried. But I suppose most importantly, my son was incredibly proud of our hard work. And his favourite part? The giraffes neck. Of course.”

In a surprise twist. After some more tweaking to the “penis hat” the bonnet actually WON the Easter competition.

“Penis giraffe bonnet only went and bloody won the Easter bonnet competition! Oh ye of little faith!!!!!

But on a serious note, it just goes to show that if you GET A GRIP of the situation, you can PULL IT OFF……. maybe there’s a little bit of penis bonnet in all of us (woah, DEEP)…. ”

  • Oh dear that is so funny! However children don’t care he probably loved it but I;m glad you made it more appropriate. Lol


  • Very funny joke! She is brave to post it!


  • Love that photo – hilarious.


  • I love the end result! I, too, am a mum who says yes you can make what you want. Incredible to see how creative children can be, and how steadfast they can be against helpful ‘guidance’.


  • Hilarious! I think her face is the best part


  • This went so very wrong. We’ve had much fun over the years creating Easter Eggs light enough to stay on a young child’s head!!


  • Great save there. Our children have been sent to test us in how creative we are.


  • Hahahaha that was good for a laugh.
    So glad she managed to get it done as. Didn’t it look great


  • Had she not managed to save it, at least she tried. Unless you used your imagination it really wasn’t that noticeable.


  • I think I love her face most of all!


  • That’s hilarious. Would have made for a good laugh. And what a surprise winning the Easter Bonnet competition.


  • Ha ha ha. Oh dear. Take two maybe?


  • So funny! I think it would be such an easy mistake- poor mum, all that effort for nothing


  • Lol hilarious! How cool that they fixed it.


  • Um… uh-oh! Very funny. Perhaps stick to something a little simpler !!!
