spring is here and an easter tree

spring is here
i had so much fun today making my parents an Easter Tree.
i can't wait to get home and make me one :)
this tree would be adorable to keep out all year..
spring {eggs}, summer {birds}, fall {pumpkins}, winter {owls}

...and this tree is very easy to make.

i went antique shopping today {with my dad}
and found this precious flowerpot

i walked into one of my favorite shops today
and found this amazing. tree. branch!
i found exactly what i needed to make my spring tree
and it was fake... yep that's right! F-A-K-E!
isn't it beautiful

once you find your flowerpot and branch you are ready to put the tree together.
i used foam & green moss from hobby lobby.

first, i cut a hole in the middle of the foam
next, i set my branch inside the hole
then, i laid green grassy moss on top to cover the foam
finally, i set some eggs on top of the grass

once your tree limb is in the pot you can start decorating it.
my mom had some really cute Easter eggs and that is what i hung on her tree.
{i had to take some for my tree too.. thanks mom!}
this tree turned out soo cute
i can't wait to make me one!
