I love displaying Pastel Easter eggs in any way possible. They end up in a vase or bowl, on the counter, in a basket or strung up with string. That is why I could not resist making an Easter egg tree. They are so festive yet simple and can be placed on any solid surface and its a quick and easy craft that can be completed in an afternoon.
- Store bought foam cone or homemade paper cone
- Hot glue gun
- Plastic Easter eggs
- Raffia or moss
I recommend using a store bought foam cone for this project because its sturdy, easy and ready for eggs. But if you are anything like me and just cannot justify spending $6 on a foam form, consider making your own with thick paper or cardboard. All you have to do is roll up the paper so that one end is tight and the other is wide. Fasten the paper cone with tape in a couple places as it seems to hold just fine like that. You will have to trim the bottom to achieve a flat base.
Using your hot glue gun, attach the plastic eggs to the cone starting from the bottom working your way up. Create a pattern with the colours or attach them randomly.
Keep attaching them until you reach the top.
Next, glue raffia or moss in-between the gaps created by the eggs. I ended up not using any glue because the moss stayed in place.
