If you need to decorate your house with an elegant, child-friendly, natural, and artistic Easter tree, the options are endless using a few simple elements.

· Easter grass
· Pastel colored ribbon
· Easter ornaments, chicks, eggs, birds or bunnies
Step 1: Place the sponge on the bottom of the tin bucket and insert the twigs and branches, distributing them evenly. Would you please make sure they are tight? If the branches are too heavy, you can put stones under the sponge to prevent the bucket from tipping.
Step 2: Bend the limbs and members to give them a tree shape.
Step 3: Fill the tin pail with Easter grass, completely covering the sponge. If there are any protruding parts, cut them off with shears.
Step 4: Wrap the band about the tinpot and match it with a bow. If you are using a satin ribbon, you may need a hot glue dot to prevent it from slipping down the top of the tin container.

White tree and colorful DIY Easter decorations
Let’s find out another simple and fun way to make a colorful and original DIY Easter tree. First, go searching for a branch in the shape of a small tree, like the one you see in this sequence of images. Involve even the little ones, who will have fun finding the ones best suited to the project. After that, you need a rather tall vase and some sand.
The materials for the tree with the paper flakes:
· Branches and twigs
· Tall glass vase
· Tissue paper or crepe paper
· Scissor (or fringed scissor)
· Washi tape
First, cut the tissue paper (or crepe paper) into 7x12cm rectangles. Choose the colors you like best, and they remind you of spring. Fold the tissue paper in half lengthwise.
At this point, using either scissors or fringed scissors, make cuts by making thin strips, being careful to stop about an inch from the central fold. Open the tissue paper back to its original size. Starting at one end, fold the silk paper to the opposite end.
Tie some twine right near the center of the rolled tissue paper. Now fold the cut and rolled tissue paper in half by pulling the string. Wrap washi tape right under the string and tie a knot at the top of the string to form a loop that will allow you to hang the bow from your tree branch. Make them different and in various colors to fill your tree.
How to make a modern Easter tree
We offer you an idea outside the classic schemes to create an Easter tree suitable for an entrance table or even as a centerpiece.
You will need:
· Fake rose curls
· Fabric butterflies
· Artificial moss

· Tree branches
· Hot glue gun
Fake flowers and fabric butterflies, and moss can find in the flower department of hobby shops. Here’s how to create a modern Easter tree, perfect as a spring centerpiece, with a few simple decorations: fake flowers, fabric butterflies, and some fresh eggs.
Empty the eggs by making a hole in the upper and lower part and, with the help of a syringe, introduce air inside to let out the egg white and yolk. It doesn’t sound very easy, but it’s not! Once the eggs have been hollowed out and cleaned, take a sewing needle with a thread and pass it through the egg. Tie a bow at the top to ensure it and decorate the eggs with a gold marker, such as polka dots and lines of various thicknesses like those proposed here.
