Easter Egg Tree

This fun idea will be sure to please the little “peeps”.

You will need:

A tree limb with many smaller branches

Spray paint (optional)

Plaster of Paris

Basket with plastic liner (large enough to hold the branch)

Easter grass

Tiny silk flowers

Glue gun

Spray paint the branch if desired. Mix the plaster in the plastic liner according to package directions. Insert the tree branch in the plaster and allow to harden. Put the plastic liner inside the basket and cover the plaster with brass. Attach the flowers to the branch with glue gun. Hang Hatching Chick and Bunny Ornaments on the tree.

Hatching Chick and Bunny Ornaments

Hatching Chick and Bunny Ornaments

Chicks

6 raw eggs

12 (2’) yellow pom-poms (for hands and bodies)

12 (1/8”-1/4”) wiggly craft eyes

Orange felt, cut in six 3/8” triangles (for beaks)

1 yard narrow pink ribbon, cut into six 5” strips

Glue gun

Bunnies

6 raw eggs

12 (2”) pink pom-poms (for heads and bodies)

12 (1/8”-1/4) wiggly craft eyes

Pink felt, cut in bunny ear shapes

White felt, cut smaller for inside bunny ears

1 yard narrow pink ribbon, cut into six 5” strips

12 (1/4”) light pink pom-poms

6 (1/8”) white pom-poms

Glue gun

To make each ornament, cut and egg in your hand and tap firmly with a knife to crack the shell. Break the egg in half. Wash both halves of the shell and allow to dry thoroughly. Glue the ends of the ribbon inside the larger half of the eggshell on opposite sides to form a handle. Glue the head and body pom-poms together, and attach the eyes. Glue felt beaks on the chicks.

For the bunnies, glue two small pink pom-poms in the middle of the cheeks.

Glue the smaller white felt ears to the larger pink felt ears. Blue the ears to the top of the head.

Set a completed chick or bunny inside the larger half of the eggshell. Glue the smaller end of the egg to the chick’s head to make it appear as if it were just hatching.

  1. One idea that I enjoyed when I was a kid was Easter eggs fights. When one person holds the (cook) egg so the point sticks out above the thump. Any person uses his egg to break it. Then the loser turn there over and try to break the other one. Then they get to eat there egg for breakfast.
  2. Where did you find that perfect tree branch? What type of tree is it? It looks perfect.
