Don’t have much time on your hands but want to join in the Easter tree fun? This simple, minimalistic Easter tree is for you!

For this idea, you’re going to need speckled eggs in the colors of your choice, ribbon and glue. Create a bow with one end of the ribbon and glue it to the top of the egg. Then make a loop with the other end of it so that you can hang it onto a branch.

For this idea, you’re going to need eggs that are edgy and creative. Once you’ve got your pattern on and it’s dry, you can go straight into gluing your string that’ll be used to hang it onto bare branches. Or, you can get a little more creative by hanging a cute tassel from the bottom of the egg.

Adorn a dried-up tree in your backyard with tons of Easter eggs and watch it transform from boring to beautiful – perfect for spring! FYI: You’re going to need A LOT of eggs for this one. I suggest using plastic ones because they’re easier to handle when you have a large amount.

An easy way to get them all up onto the tree branches without having to tie them all individually is to tie them to a long string before tying it to the tree.

Going for a pastel theme this Easter? This festive egg tree makes use of pastel colors and stripes.

To decorate your eggs, you’ll first need to add strips of tape across the width of each egg, leaving equal-sized gaps in between each strip of tape. Then you can paint over the eggs with your desired colors. Once the eggs are dry, remove the tape to reveal a neatly striped pattern.

Easter Tree With A Variety Of Ornaments
