If you have baskets of decorated Easter eggs at home and you don’t know what to do with them, try an Easter egg tree!

This idea was originally inspired by the wonderful Easter egg tree in Jean’s childhood copy of A Time to Keep, by Tasha Tudor.

If you’re not familiar with the book, it depicts family and friends celebrating each season and holiday through the year. It is a lovely book to read with your family, all year long!

Here’s the two-page spread for April and Easter. Isn’t that Easter egg tree just gorgeous? We decided we had to try making our own!

Here’s how we did it.

How to Make an Easter Egg Tree


*Here are 11 Easter egg decorating ideas, in case you need some.

Note: If you don’t want to blow out Easter eggs, you could also use those white plastic eggs you see in stores.


  1. Prepare your tree

    Take a nature walk or go hunting in your backyard for a branch with multiple stems (so you have plenty of spots to hang eggs!).
    You can leave your branch natural, or if you are feeling a little fancy, you can spray paint it white.

    Stick your branch into your bucket and then fill it with rocks, sand, or dirt.

  2. Attach a ribbon to your eggs

    Use a glue gun to attach a ribbon or yarn loop to the top of each egg, so you can hang it.

  3. Decorate your tree!

    Add your eggs to the different branches, then step back and admire your Easter egg tree!
