Last year I made an Easter tree and hung handmade felt birds on it, as seen in the first pic. In my search to show you some other great Easter trees I found out that the concept originated in Germany. "Osterbaum", the German name for Easter trees, are usually made out of the cut branches of pussy willow or other flowering bushes which are brought into the house and placed in vases. They are then decorated with hand painted wooden eggs, or hollowed out real eggs.
Also, the small living trees and bushes that are already planted around the outside of the house are often decorated with plastic, wooden or real painted eggs and wreaths. How fantastic!
Have a sweet day!
