Easter Egg Tree Ideas
These days, people are decorating trees for all holidays and occasions. There are Fourth of July trees, Halloween trees and even Valentine’s trees so it’s no surprise that decorating an Easter egg tree is a tremendous hit. Despite the fact that this may sound like another trend, it’s actually been around for quite a long time. It began in Germany where they called it Osterbaum, which means Easter tree and it symbolizes new life. Decorating trees in Germany is a custom tradition, where people decorate the trees and bushes in their yard with brilliantly colored eggs that can be empty, plastic, wooden or even real painted eggs. The tradition picked up its popularity when a man named Volker Kraft included more and more eggs every year to a tree in his yard topping it off at 10,000 eggs dangling from its branches!
Today, you can locate this whimsical tradition still buzzing with most people using their trees as decor inside of the home. These stunning trees make great centerpieces as well as fun central pieces displayed all through the home on tables, mantles and countertops. The tree itself can be made of branches, bushes or plants and you can add your own touches to it as well using a wreath, nest, lace specifying or whatever else your creative heart desires.
