How to Hang Easter Eggs from a Tree
We have a bit of an Easter tree tradition at our home! For the past few years, my daughter and I have created an Easter egg tree outside our home.
In years past, we just tied a few plastic eggs to some ornate tree branches I had in a pot on our front porch!
If you do not have a small tree at your home, this actually works very well to add a splash of Easter / spring color to an outdoor space.
But, this year we decided to use an actual tree in our yard for our DIY Easter Egg Tree.
If you want a fast, easy, and inexpensive outdoor Easter decor idea, this is it!
Hanging Easter Eggs from a Tree
Step 1: Pick your tree!
We decided to use a small, ornamental tree in our front yard. It has multiple branches that my daughter could easily reach, so it was a winner.
Step 2: Gather your supplies
I save all of our plastic Easter eggs each year. At this point, I have quite the stash! You likely have all you need to complete this easy project without going out to buy a thing!
Step 3: Cut twine and place end inside egg
We cut our twine approximately 10 inches long. We simply stuck the end of the twine inside the egg, made sure it snapped securely together, and we still had plenty of twine left to tie around the tree branches.
Step 4: Tie the twine to the tree branches in a double knot
It gets pretty windy at our home, so we made sure to tie a double knot in the twine.
Step 5: Spread the Eggs out evenly on your Easter Egg Tree
We did our best to get the eggs in positions that would look symmetrical. I used a step stool to get the eggs a little bit higher.
But, I will be honest that I wasn't loving the idea of getting these eggs out of the tree in a month or so, after all of the spring leaves were in full bloom on the tree.
If I got them too high, I'd have to fight the leaves with a ladder to cut out the twine and eggs.
So, we kept the eggs a bit lower. Our fun little Easter tree still looked super cute, in my opinion!
On a side note, my husband was teaching our 8th grade son to mow at the same time my daughter and I were making our little egg tree.
Kids grow up so fast, you guys!
Watching him learn to mow just reinforced how important it is to enjoy every single phase with the kids. The next stage of life will be here in no time!
Easter Egg Tree complete!
This fun DIY was finished in about 15-20 minutes. Even if you don't already have a stash of plastic Easter eggs, you can snag several for just a few dollars.
Nothing like a fast AND inexpensive DIY with the kiddos!
