I love decorating my home for Easter and one of my favourite things to do is create an Easter tree which I'm looking forward to making this weekend. Will you be decorating your home for Easter? I thought I'd share these images of Easter trees that have inspired me :)

If you want to create your own Easter tree, here's a step-by-step guide:

What you'll need...

  • branches (pussy willow, curly willow branches and cherry blossom sprays will work really well) or you can get your fella to cut some from your own garden!
  • a galvanised bucket/vintage jug/terracotta pot
  • oasis or sand to hold branches in place
  • moss to hide oasis
  • Easter decorations of choice

Steps...

  1. place the oasis at the base of the bucket and arrange the branches how you want them
  2. layer the moss on top to hide the oasis
  3. simply decorate each branch as you wish
  4. stand back and admire :)

I recently did a post about our favourite Easter decorations but here's a few that would be perfect for decorating your tree :)

  2. Hanging lavender bird decoration, €8.50, www.cathkidston.co.uk
  3. Speckled egg decorations, €7.48, www.notonthehighstreet.com
