Tutorial - Easter Egg Branches Display


Happy Spring!  

I am slowly starting to decorate for spring and wanted to share with you the tutorial on how I made this Easter display using branches and Easter egg ornaments.

You will need:

Tree Branches
White Spray Paint
White Vase
Easter Egg Ornaments (can be found in Michaels, Dollar Tree, or other craft stores)

Step 1:
When you (or in my case, my sweet hubby) is trimming the trees, save a few branches for this project and set aside!  Here's my stash:


Step 2:
Pick a few of the best branches and remove the leaves.  You might want to have your vase near you to make sure the branches you pick will fit inside the vase.  Another tip is to pick branches that have more twigs coming off of it so you can hang ornaments from them.  Here are my favorites before I took all of the leaves off:


Step 3:
Once you've removed the leaves off of the branches, take all of them and tie them up so you can easily spray paint the branches.  I used our tree in the backyard and made sure that there was nothing nearby that I would accidentally spraypaint!



Step 4:
Let the branches dry overnight (or whatever the spray can directions instruct).  Once the branches are dry, you can go ahead and put the branches in your vase.


Step 5:
I was lucky enough to buy these sequined Easter egg ornaments on clearance at Michaels after Easter last year, but I saw them again this year, and they have other variations at Dollar Tree too.  But I'm sure you can find them at other craft stores.  So take these beauties and hang them anywhere your heart desires (in my case, it was anywhere Brody and Skylar wanted.  Surprisingly I only had to move a few of them to different places.)


Here's a closeup of the eggs just for fun:


And now you have a cute Easter Egg Ornament Display!


Here's another closeup shot:


I hope to have more spring decor up in a few weeks, and will make sure to share with you soon!
