Hi Friends! We’re really getting into the Easter and spring spirit over here, and I have a another easy decorating idea to show you. I think I have an obsession with eggs right now, because lately, just about all of my projects seem to revolve around them. Anyway, I wanted to create an Easter vignette for the foyer, and I thought it would be cute to add a little Easter tree — not a big one, just a small one with a few eggs. So, the kids and I went to work, and we made a sweet little DIY Easter Tree, complete with glittery eggs.
With this project, I really stepped out of my comfort zone and used glitter — daring, right?! Well, you have to know that I really hate having glitter everywhere, so I’ve always avoided decorating with anything that had glitter. But, I’ve been seeing some really pretty glittered eggs here and there, and when we were in the craft store the other day, my girls saw some pretty glitter and convinced me to buy it — sigh.
It was a nice day, so we headed outside, which made the process a lot neater and easier for me. We used some mini foam eggs, and we gave them a makeover with a mixture of glue and acrylic paint. Then, we dipped them in the glitter and let them dry. I don’t have any pictures of this process since my hands were covered with glue and glitter.
But, Hubby had made a planter box out of scrap wood, and I used this for the base.
I just gave it a quick coat of Americana Chalky Paint, and the wood was so rough that I got an instant distressed look. I filled the base with some pebbles and added a few white branches that I already had.
Then, we just added the eggs, and I have to say that they really are adorable. And, the glitter isn’t shedding much at all.
I’m happy with our little Easter tree, and the girls are thrilled with the glittered eggs. It’s weird how something like that can bring peace and harmony to our home!
I suppose this could also be a centerpiece, but I tried something similar last year, and it just got messed up every time we moved it to eat. And, it was impossible to have a conversation since the branches were in the way, but maybe that’s just me.
Do you have an Easter Tree in your home?
