Easter Tree

I turned my snowflake tree into an Easter tree!

I started this project when the ground was still white with snow.  Working full time and busy weekends haven’t left much crafting time for me.  I am so happy that this project is now complete.  this tree makes me smile.

I used Mr. SP’s band saw to cut out the ornaments.  I drew an egg shape for the egg ornaments and traced cookie cutters for the rabbit and chicks.  I cut notches is some of the eggs to make them 3-D.

I painted each egg and then either used Mod Podge to apply Easter images from The Graphics Fairy or used Mod Podge to apply scrapbook paper.  I used my limited art skills to paint designs on the 3-D eggs.

I couldn’t have a star on an Easter tree, so I used a double stick tape to tape a chick to each side of the star.  I made a wreath using these chicks back in the mid-90’s.

I’m so happy to finally have an Easter decoration in my house.  I decided not to pull out all of my Easter things this year since Easter is just a week away.  If I’m going to make the effort to decorate, I need to enjoy it longer than a week.  This cute tree will be just enough Easter for this year.

I’ve been collecting marble eggs for a few years.  The chicks in the middle came from a local gift shop.  The smaller fluffy chicks were $1.00 for a pack of four large or $1.00 for a pack of six small at Big Lots.
