How to decorate an Easter tree

As we are officially in April I have just finished decorating my Easter tree this year and of course it is a mono theme. 

How to decorate an Easter tree

Here's my how to:

1. Take a vessel of your choosing- from a porcelain jug, to an old large jam jar- the choices are endless and as I like to keep things thrifty- I have used an old 'vintagey' green jar we had on the attic.

2. Find a suitable bush... or tree obvs. I found one on my estate and went out with my secateurs- not feeling the slightest bit guilty as they charge me a fortune to mow grass on the estate and essentially I have pruned a tree for free so- they are very welcome.

3. Place said cuttings (from your garden or elsewhere) (ps I am not advocating stealing from actual peoples' gardens... pps unless they have a nice pussy willow then worth asking...jokes-ish.

4. Blow out some eggs. There are many you tube videos on how to blow eggs... I simply placed a pin hole at the top and used my pin to make a larger hole at the bottom. Blew out the yolk and white. Washed said egg.

5. Paint eggs- or spray painting would be so much easier! I dried them on a radiator as they took a while. I then adorned with black pen or paint. I was using acrylic paint. 

6. I used a glue gun and glued fishing line to the eggs and hung these from three branches. However, wool, ribbon- whatever you have lying around.

7. Feathers- I already had them painted with gold on the tips but I again glued with fishing line and hung in several places. A mixture of black feathers (bought so cheaply from Ebay years ago and the bird guinea fowl produces fabulous feathers again from Ebay.

8. To finish- I wrapped paper around a plastic cup (reusing and recycling here but paper cups if you have them would be best) and planted it with a cutting from a plant writing Happy Easter.
