Easter is such a fun time of year for the kids, but can be equally as fun to decorate, for the adults! The colors are so pretty, and mimic the bright, vivid, colors that springtime offers! A way of using an element from the outdoors as decorations inside for Easter, would be an Easter Egg Tree! Although time consuming, decorating an Easter Egg Tree is a fun activity the entire family can enjoy together!
Some of the items you will need:
~A pot or tin container
~A foam flower block
~Large styrofoam square with pins for drying eggs
Start by gathering branches...
Place a foam flower block into your pot.
Stick the branches into the foam flower block.
Then blow out the eggs...
(Use a safety pin to make holes on both ends of egg, and with aspirator, blow out the contents of egg into a bowl)
Dye the eggs...
(1tsp. vinegar, 10-20 drops of food coloring, and 1c. of hot water)
With a very large sewing needle, pull a piece of string through the egg and knot the end.
Tie each egg onto a branch.
