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.
