8 Ways To Make An Easter Egg Tree

8 Ways To Make An Easter Egg Tree

The Easter egg tree is a symbol of new life and has been a tradition for centuries. In Germany where this holiday tradition originated, it’s common to see many homes with full-blown decorated trees during the season. As the rest of the world caught on, people started using different ways to create their version of the Easter tree. Make your own Easter egg tree this year using these eight fun and easy ideas!

1. Real trees

    Nothing says Easter like an Easter tree in the garden or front porch. Hang as many painted eggs and ornaments as you want, but make sure branches are sturdy enough to support them. You can use ribbons or florist wire to secure them in place.

    2. Potted plants

    If you don’t have a tree, you can use potted plants or topiaries to make an Easter egg tree. Take two potted plants (preferably taller ones), hang your decorated eggs on the branches, and place one on each side of your front door for a welcoming Easter display.

    3. Watering can

    Grab your old watering can and stick in some dried branches and twigs. If the arrangement is wobbly, you can use sand, floral foam, or pebbles to keep the branches steady. Once they’re secure, you can start decorating your “tree.”

    4. Glass vase

      Get a bunch of pussy willows (your local flower shop may have these) and arrange them in a clear glass vase. For this tree, I used a mix of pre-painted eggs and several ones that I dyed and painted myself. Using a hot glue gun, I attached buttons and ribbons to the eggs. If you can’t find pussy willows, you can also use grapevine or dried branches and twigs from your backyard. To keep them upright, fill the vase halfway with water pearls or jelly fillers. Tie a bow around the vase to make it prettier! You can also use hurricane bowls or mason jars for this project.

      5. Galvanized bucket or pail

      This Easter tree how-to from Martha Stewart requires an ice bucket, branches, floral foam to keep the branches in place, and decorated eggs. You can add grass to make it look like the branches sprouted from the ground.

      6. Planter pots

        If you’re into gardening, you probably have a few empty planter pots lying around. To keep with the Easter theme, paint the pot and eggs in pastel hues. Light pink, baby blue and lilac look well together, but it’s up to you which colors to choose. This would look fantastic on your fireplace mantel or console table.

        7. Cupcake stand

        Take out your cupcake stand from storage and clean it. Use wheat straws to make a bed before placing the Easter eggs on top, making it as sparse or as filled as you want. If you don’t have a cupcake stand, a tiered cake stand works just as well!

        8. Ornament stand

        This Easter tree is the simplest by far—just clean up an ornament stand and decorate it! Use as many eggs and ornaments as possible to give the tree a full look. If you want something fancier, place the ornament stand inside a pot and fill it with mulch or grass before hanging your Easter eggs. You can also set it on top of a wooden stump and use it as a centerpiece for your dinner table!

        These are just some of the ways you can make your own Easter egg tree. Sure, you can just decorate your outdoor tree, but why stop there? With a little creativity and some imagination, the possibilities are simply endless!

        8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

        8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

        We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

        On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

        Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

        1. Smart Door Locks

        A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

        2. Smart Kitchen Tools

        Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

        3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

        If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

        4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

        These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

        5. Nest Thermostat

        This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

        6. Smart Lighting

        Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

        7. Google Chromecast Ultra

        Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

        8. Canary

        This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
