This project has been on my to-do list for years. I love Easter Egg Trees, and I have wanted to make an Easter Egg Tree decoration for ages. But it always seems that I run out of time in the spring. Not this year! I finally have my DIY Easter Egg Tree.
This DIY Easter Egg Tree tutorial is sponsored by Waverly inspirations.
When I opened the materials for this month’s Waverly Inspirations challenge, there was no question as to what I would do with the selection of acrylic paints in pretty spring pastels. It was just what I needed to make my Easter Egg Tree.
Make Easter Egg Tree
Originally, I planned to paint the eggs myself, but as I was painting the branches I realized it would be more special if I made it with my helpers. So my Easter Egg Tree became a family project, and it was perfect.
After school, I set out some craft paper and our supplies. After explaining what we were doing, I let the girls go to town painting and creating. They were having so much fun, I let them paint the second dozen eggs.
My absolute favorite egg is the one I made using baby girl’s hand print. I am a sucker for tiny hand prints, and it is the perfect keepsake.

After gathering branches, paint the branches white. (Optional, you could leave the branches natural, but I like the look of the painted branches.)
Paint the Easter Eggs in a variety of colors, styles and patterns.
Mom tip – To dry the eggs, I placed pieces of double-sided tape on the craft paper. We painted everything but the bottoms and tops of the egg, and then we stuck the eggs to the tape to dry. While they were on the tape, we painted the tops, and once they were dry we painted the bottoms and laid them on their sides to dry. It worked perfect!
After everything dried, place the branches in a mason jar and tie a bow around the mason jar (optional).
Finally, hot glue loops of ribbon to the tops of the eggs and hung the eggs on the branches.
I love the way my Easter Egg Tree turned out with adorable contributions from each of my daughters. And it will be easy to pack away with the Easter decorations to reuse each year.
