For an easy craft idea with children this Easter weekend, how about making an Easter tree? We’ve given it a go for the first time this year, and I LOVE it. Such a pretty addition to the house, and fun to make together.
First step is twig collecting. A lovely opportunity for a family adventure in the woods, although lets be honest, a bit of playground/ice cream bribery might help too. I arranged mine in this vase from Dunelm Mill and added the ribbon. A bit twee for my normal style, but perfect for Easter.
We used polystyrene eggs from The Works to decorate. Paint, sequins, wool, felt tips… anything goes. Since this picture, a few more have been added too, adorably with flowers drawn on and their names written on them (‘lecsee’, ‘fIlet’, and ‘popee’… everything gets named at the moment ♥♥♥. That’s Lexi, Violet and Poppy if you are unsure on the phonetic writing attempts!).
We’ve also used Easter stickers, feathers attached with glue dots, little chicks, and a few other decorations we had in. Really simple, but looks so good!
As an alternative, above is what we made last year, a hanging Spring branch. You’ll probably notice a lot of the same components as this year… recycling craft materials is important!
With this, I hung the decorations using invisible thread, and decorated the branch by wrapping with yarn. The gorgeous tissue paper flowers were made using a tutorial from Rust and Sunshine. They are so easy.
Incidentally, last years stick was called Darcie 🙂
I’d love to see your Easter decorations if you’ve made any. Share here or tag me on Instagram @thisislullaby
