Spring is almost here and what better way to celebrate then by adding in fun seasonal decor accents. Bring the outdoors in by finding inspiration in nature. I’ve enjoyed adding branches around my home with my winter decor and decided to transition it for spring by switching things up. This hanging eggs DIY Easter tree is so easy to put together and makes a great centerpiece for your mantle, tabletop, or entryway.
- 1.5 inch Wooden Eggs
- Eye Screws
- Twine or Hemp Cording
- Chalk Paintin Pink, Light Green & Yellow
- Foam Brushes
- Glass Canister Jar
- Blue Burlap Ribbon
- Tree Branches
Step 1. You’ll start by placing tree branches inside your glass jar or vase. Arrange them so that they are facing outward in different directions, this will help your eggs hang from various angles. (I went in the backyard and collected branches off my tree, you can find branches anywhere!)
Step 2. Now you’ll start creating your hanging eggs. Begin by adding eye screws to the wide end of the egg by twisting while applying pressure. (I found it easier to add eye screws before applying chalk paint because you can hold onto the screw while painting).
Now you’ll apply chalk paint to the wooden eggs using a brush.
After the eggs are painted, you’ll set them aside to dry.
Step 3. After the eggs are fully dried, you’ll thread them with twine to hang onto the branches.
Step 4. Wrap around a length of blue burlap ribbon on the vase and tie into a bow.
Step 5. Now comes the fun part of adding the eggs on the tree branches and your DIY Easter tree is done!
