What do you need to make your own Easter tree?

Unlike Christmas trees, Easter trees tend to be small enough to stand on the Easter table or a sideboard, spreading some appreciated Easter joy. It is simple to make your own Easter tree at home. We will show you how.

The Base

First you must decide on a base for your traditional Easter tree. Consider what type of feeling you want to achieve with your Easter tree, do you want to add a splash of colour with your Easter arrangement, or do you want to keep it pared back and simple? In Scandinavia it is most common to use living branches in a vase filled with water. The shape of the vase will also affect the arrangement. A rounder vase with a wide base will cause the branches to splay out creating a wide display whereas a taller, narrower vase will keep the branches more compact.

The Branches

Almost anything can make up the branches of your Easter tree. For a touch of colour and a real spring feeling, branches that are in bloom such as forsythia, cherry blossom, dogwood or pussy willow work perfectly. You can even mix the branches in with some spring flowers for some extra colour.

The Decorations

The most traditional way to decorate your Easter tree is with hanging eggs and colourful feathers. Delicate glass eggs like these from Iittala add a hint of colour and reflect the light beautifully, break from tradition with some easter figurines or why not have some fun and get the kids involved to make some decorations of your own?
