A Very Global Easter: Easter Tree DIY
Welcome to our 3rd annual A Very Global Easter. Day one is for DIY Easter Trees! Do you participate in this fun European tradition? In Germany, they decorate outside trees and bushes with beautifully dyed Easter eggs and in Sweden, the tradition is to bring in twigs adorned with eggs and feathers.
How to create an Easter tree:
Nothing to me says spring like fresh leafy stems, easter eggs, and cute pink floral bunnies. Right? I saved a couple of stems as I pruned our sage plant to bring the heavenly scent indoors. Last year I used a couple of bare branches with clay egg ornaments so this year I decided on larger scaled twiggy budding branches.
- Use outside stems, house plants, or faux branches for your traditional Easter tree.
My daughter and I hung paper egg and bunny ornaments and DIY washi eggs made with cheap-plastic easter eggs. Make sure to come back Wednesday to grab the printable floral easter eggs and bunnies that make nine easter ornaments.
- Adorn your easter egg tree with free printable eggs and bunnies, feathers, easter eggs, and anything else that reminds you of spring. Glue a piece of string to existing easter eggs to create an ornament.
How to add global flair to your Easter egg tree.
- The Easter tree itself already has lovely German and Swedish influence. But you can still add global eclectic style by using an Asian vase, chinoiserie container, or Mexican pottery to hold your branches in.
The way my branches are arranged in the Asian bamboo-shaped vase reminds me of ikebana, the art of Japanese flower arranging. They are always sculptural and organic. That with the added washi eggs definitely speaks to my love of Japan.
My wish for you is to feel empowered to try these fun ideas and take your Easter and spring decorating to the next level! And maybe even start a new tradition or two with your friends and family.
