Today I want to share a quick and thrifty Easter decor idea. This Easter egg tree cost about $4 and only took half an hour to make, including the time I spent outside collecting branches.
I cut young, budding branches about 25 - 30 inches in length from the honeysuckle brush at the back of our property. Then I filled a glass vase with river rock, arranged the branches by carefully pushing them between the rocks, and poured in water. Super easy! It took just a few days for the buds to open and leaf out.
The girls helped me to decorate the tree with styrofoam Easter egg ornaments. I considered using my glass ornaments, but decided to wait until the girls are older and less likely to knock the tree over as they race through the living room.
The vase, river rock, and small egg ornaments all came from the dollar store. I've had the larger eggs in my Easter stash for years. And there you have it..... quick, costs next to nothing, and beautiful, what's not to love?
