Making an Easter tree is fun, and you probably have much of what you will need around your home already. Here are the supplies you want to round up:

  • Sand
  • A large vase
  • Spray paint
  • Clippers
  • Trash bag
  • Spring/Easter decorations 

Step One
Find a sturdy, well-branched limb to make your tree

Step Two
Use your clippers to collect your branch

Step Three
Place your vase in the trash bag; put the branch in the vase

Step Four
Fill the vase with sand to keep your "tree" sturdy

Step Five
Be sure the vase is covered with the trash bag and spray paint your "tree" (we used white spray paint)

Step Six
Let the "tree" dry for an hour before bringing it inside to decorate

Step Seven
Add your Easter/Spring themed decorations!
