Each year, our family puts together an Easter tree to celebrate the special holiday. Dad cuts a few low-hanging maple branches that we bring in the living room to decorate with lights, eggs, and blossoms. (Since I really shouldn't decorate for Christmas all year, the Easter tree is a suitable remedy for my Yuletide withdrawals. Haha.) Here's a brief guide on how to make your own!
What you'll need
A few branches. No larger than 5 ft. in length
White spray paint (optional)
Pastel or Easter print fabric
Mini lights. Regular Christmas lights tend to be too heavy, both physically and visually)
Easter egg ornaments. Available at Hobby Lobby and other such stores.
Faux florals. Cherry blossoms are a favorite choice!
If you wish, you can give the branches a coat of white spray paint. We did this last year and it created a lovely, subtle finish. Almost like a limewash. Or you can of course leave the branches au naturale. :)
Position the branches in a large bucket and fill in with rocks to stabilize the branches.
Wrap the bucket in a pastel or Easter print fabric.
Decorate the tree!
'Til next time,
