We made an Easter egg tree!
The tree is inspired by the wonderful Easter egg tree in Tasha Tudor's A Time to Keep. Maia has asked to make one just about every time we've read the book. I'm good at saying, "someday, perhaps..." But this time we finally just made one.
The tree is a branch, blown down in our backyard, stuck in a bucket of rocks, sand, and dirt. The eggs are the lightweight, blown-out Easter eggs we just decorated. I used a glue gun to attach a ribbon loop to each for hanging purposes.
Maia decorated our tree.
And I redistributed some of the eggs after a while in the interest of keeping them all on the tree and whole.
Now we just need some grass seed to plant at the base of our tree! I'm wondering if you can buy it in little seed packets or if it's only for sale in those big 5 pound bags. Anyone know?
