When I was a young girl my Mom made us a beautiful Easter tree from twigs. We hung pastel colored eggs on it. I still remember my brother and I dressed-up in our perfect Easter outfits taking pictures with that tree on Easter Morning.
I have always wanted to make a tree for my children for Easter and Spring Time. This year I finally accomplished that goal. I choose a “Garden Theme” for my tree. Nothing reminds me more of Spring than the new growth and life that comes from the Earth in the Spring.
Come back later this week to find out how I made this tree. For now enjoy the pictures of the tree itself.
I used this old cheese box turned planter to showcase some seeds purchased at the dollar store. I thought that the planter was a great fit with the words “overbloom” written across it. My son and I plan to use the tools and all the seeds off the tree in our yard when it’s time to start planting.
Michaels has a section that has many dollar or less deals. This is where I found the garden stakes in this picture as well as all of the gardening tools. I love how you can write on the stakes with chalk.
The beehive was so attractive and interesting I could not pass it up at 50% off. I thought it added a nice touch to the mantel. It also reminded me of are sometimes pesky friends that return in the spring. We ran into quit a few of them at the zoo today.
Hidden within the tree are several secret resting spots for our feathered friends. A bright yellow birdhouse as well as several twiggy nests adorn this fanciful tree. A peak between the leaves in this nest reveals a hidden secret. How many eggs do you see?
I hope you enjoyed the “Garden Themed” Spring Tree and Mantel and Please remember to stop back by later this week to see exactly how I created this project.
