Easter Egg Tree
For a long time I have been wanting to decorate a tree with Easter eggs for Easter. I have never been able to figure out how to hang the eggs on the tree. I finally figured it out, however, and now my little dogwood tree in my front yard is all decorated for Easter!
It is actually really easy to hang up the plastic Easter eggs. I first created a Easter egg garland then I realized I could do the same thing to hang the eggs on my tree.
Many of the inexpensive plastic Easter eggs you buy have two small holes in the end of them. Some of them are in different places, so before you buy them check out the ends of them to make sure they have two small holes in them, spaced closely together.
I used twine to hang my eggs, but you could also use twine or ribbon. I cut a piece of twine 5-6 inches long to string through each egg.
To make your life a lot easier, you will probably want to some sort of multi tool to make the holes in the eggs bigger. This will make it a lot easier to string the twine or ribbon through the eggs. This step only takes a few minutes.
I strung a piece of twine through each egg, tied the ends, and then my youngest son helped me hang them on our tree out front.
I love Christmas trees, and honestly this is the second best thing to a decorated Christmas tree. In Germany, decorating trees with Easter egg is a popular Easter tradition. Their Easter tree is called the Osterbaum.
This is a fun Easter tradition to start with your family. I know we will be doing it again next year.
