I have Ella in a playgroup with a few other little girls a couple times a week. We moms take turns having the girls at our homes to play before preschool. Sometimes we do a little craft with the girls. This is the “craft” that Ella came home with last week — an Easter Egg Tree!
My friend had the girls decorate their eggs. Then she tied a ribbon and attached the ribbon to the egg with a glue gun.
Then they hung them on branches she had picked from her yard — stuck in styrofoam and covered in moss.
She also found some ribbon that looks like leaves and tied it onto the parts of the branches. What a cute idea!!!
This would be a great craft to make with your kiddos for Easter. I also thought it would be cute if you wanted to decoupage the pot with some colorful, bright paper!
Have a great Friday night!
Are you doing anything fun?
Also, just a reminder, the jewelry giveaway ends tonight AND the Weekend Wrap Up Party starts tomorrow — what have you been making or cooking or doing??? I have a fun giveaway for the party – can’t wait to show you!

I love the tree! My mom used to do something similar for us when we were little. How fun!
Cheryl @ a pretty cool life. says
I did this for Christmas…I should pull it out and hang some Easter eggs on it. How cute!
Lil' Woman says
Adorable tree! 🙂
How adorable Jen. Clearly Ella has your talent. I always just cut some fresh freesia branches and hang my lovelies on them. We will be right in the middle of moving this year, so no Easter tree for us! boo hoo!

DARLING!!!!! I made a similar tree for a client but spray painted the branches a silvery hue and glued fake (the pretty kind lol!) cherry blossom pink flowers and a few leaves scattered. She used it for a Spring has Sprung Party last week. I purchase that ribbon wholesale and LOVE the idea of using it. I am so copying that idea. Thanks so much!! And thanks for the lovely comment! Count me in to join the party…TOO much fun to miss out on!
that is so cute…and looks so easy to do!

Very neat idea. I might have to do this with Trey.
Have a great weekend!
hmmm, that could make a cute Easter Hostess gift…
So so cute. Way cuter than ours here. Your daughter is pretty handy at decorating eggs. If my son went at those they would all have scribbled batmans and transformers on them.

Very, very cute! I like it a lot! 🙂 Love that leaf ribbon too!
Very cute–and I love that leaf ribbon!
That is such a cute and green idea to do for Easter! Love it! I have decoupaged before and I think its a really neat idea to do on a flower pot, it would be all in bright colors and look springy for the holiday!
Miss Anne says
I LOVE this tree idea!
I may just make a centerpiece this weekend! It'd be cute to have the branches spray painted a light moss green or white too! 🙂
thanks for the idea!

Have a great weekend!

My sister and I did this last year with our kiddos and they loved it. We let them paint the pots and decorate the eggs. We didn't have leaf ribbon though. That would have made them fabulous!
