How to: Easter Egg Trees

In many European countries it’s customary to celebrate with an Easter tree that is decorated with ribbon and beautiful hanging eggs. Create your own high impact Easter tree by applying minimum effort with a few of our hacks.

The Easter tree

Easily purchase a twig like tree from Kmart – they have a great range with a variety of colours – or if you want to get crafty make your own Easter tree.

Materials:

  • Ice bucket or vase
  • Foam or pebbles
  • Grass (optional)
  • Branches such as pussy willow, flowering quince, magnolia, forsythia, or cherry blossom if you can find these. Otherwise you can find branches from your local craft store.
  • Ribbon

Instructions:

  1. Place foam into an ice bucket or pebbles into a vase and fill with branches. Add grass in between the branches if you wish.
  2. Cut ribbon to approximately 15 cm and tie as bows or wrap around branches for a delicate touch.
  3. Add your decorations onto the tree.

Easter Decorations

Add some personalised fillable acrylic hearts to the Easter mix. Get one for each family member and fill up with some chocolate to look pretty and hold weight on the tree.

Incorporate frosted glass eggs to add colour to your tree. They come in white, pink and blue and make a lovely Easter gift that will be cherished. These frosted glass eggs can also be opened up and filled with small goodies for family and friends to enjoy.

 

Include a variety of eggs to best suit your chosen colour scheme whether it be natural or bright. These eggs are lightweight and fun to be all around your Easter tree.

If want to get creative you could dye some eggs and paint them for a display in front of the tree alongside some ceramic egg holders for a special Easter touch.
