This pretty Easter Egg Tree centerpiece idea was sent in by HWTM reader Virginia Bell. I love the simple-chic style and the fact that she included the phrase “I literally pulled it together in about 10 minutes!” with the submission. Gotta love quick & easy! =)
Read on for the DIY details, as told by Virginia…
“When I was growing up, my Mom had an easter tree that I absolutely adored. The ornaments for the tree consisted of delicate, pastel, hand-painted wooden eggs and my sibling and I would look forward to decorating the tree every spring.
The other day I was at one of my favorite locally-owned floral and gift boutiques, Celebrations, and stumbled across these fabulous, over-sized, brightly-colored sisal eggs (the manufacturer/brand is Raz Imports).
The eggs conveniently had a clear wire looped through the top, so I immediately thought of the Easter tree from my youth and realized that these whimsical eggs could be a fun, fresh, & updated spin on the traditional Easter Tree.
I found some Japanese tulip branches at the craft store (Hobby Lobby), secured them in a large white, urn-shaped planter by using floral foam at the bottom, looped the eggs onto the branches, and Voila! – a 2010-appropriate Easter Tree.
I already had the moss bunny and carrot from last Easter (Celebrations, again!), so to dress up the carrot I tied some orange & green grosgrain ribbon around the neck of the carrot.”
Thanks for the inspiration, Virginia!
P.S. In image #2 above, the Easter Egg Tree centerpiece is featured on top of Virginia’s Tablevogue cover, which you might remember from this earlier post, and pictured directly above is a shot of the Tablevogue accented with colorful grosgrain ribbon at the pleats… super cute idea for spring tables!
