Easter: DIY twig tree & other decorations

I officially love any excuse to get creative. 

To decorate my home & make things magical for the children. 

Some may see it as OTT & don't see the big deal with Easter. It's not Christmas is it?

To me it's a bit of fun. 

Cheap, cheerful & easy fun! 




How effective is this twig tree? A real focal point on my 'Easter table'. 

And it was so cheap to make!

I already had the vase which I filled with some moss which was a pound or two on eBay. 

I got the kids to go on a twiggy hunt on one of our walks, which was a great excuse to get out and picked the best to put in the vase. 

The twignest in the middle was also a few pounds from eBay which I filled with mini glittery eggs from The works.  




The birds are from Tiger UK and are on little crocodile clips making them easy to attach to the twigs. 





I hung an assortment of eggs from the twigs: the sequin and glitter ones are from The works and the painted ones are from Tiger UK (pictured below) 

This would also look just as beautiful with homemade eggs and crafts by the kids hung proudly on display. We normally would have but time has run away with is this year and we've not yet had the chance. 




The grass runner is another Tiger UK purchase which I added daisies to, from Home bargains and glittery eggs from The works. 



The pots of mini daffodils were from Morrisons for a bargain 50p which the children made decorative paper covers for and added mini eggs and a bunny to from The Works.




The chick & striped bunting is home made. 




This happy Easter banner was a pound or two from Home Bargains. 




The sofa even gets an Easter addition with this bunny cushion which was a charity shop find. 




And then I picked up this lovely Easter book last weekend in Hamleys when we were visiting London which is now proudly displayed on the mantle piece. 




I'm going to do an 'Easter bunny breakfast' on Easter morning for the children. I have some pastel striped paper plates and pastel spot napkins along with some Easter crackers and an Easter cake stand I intend to fill with homemade Easter treats. 

A lot of effort? 

Maybe. But you're only young once and I am making the most of these innocent earlier years as I can!

  1. Such great ideas! So cute! I tried to make an egg tree but it went so comically bad I had to stop.
