Springtime decorations are so much fun! I have always wanted an Easter tree. I love the ones that I see each year at Pottery Barn Kids. This year, I decided to make my own- and you can, too! It was easy and fun- and I think they look great, too!
How to Make Your Own Easter Tree
Gather your materials. I gathered materials from around the house: a few pots, Easter grass, sticks from our back yard, bubble wrap, wrapping paper, ribbon and some eggs.
Decide how you would like to decorate your pots. We used a pot that my daughter decorated on her 4th birthday, a plain one, and one that I wrapped with wrapping paper. If you have some burlap hanging around, that would also be super cute! Then, I tied cute ribbon around the pots.
Put your bubble wrap or foam into the pot, and stick in the branches. I tied mine together with twine to hold them upright.
Stuff the Easter grass or other filler into the pot.
Hang your eggs. Maybe you want to hand craft felt eggs, or papier-mâché them, or use some from a craft store. Check out these fun egg crafting ideas from Catherine, and wet felted egg DIY from Nicole.
Anything goes – use your creativity! The kids loved helping me decorate the trees!
