How to Make an Easy Easter Egg Topiary Tree

Before you know it Easter will be here. Since I love decorating for Easter and topiaries I thought I would make an Easter Egg Topiary Tree!

Easter egg trees are a fun and easy way to decorate your home and get ready to celebrate Easter. If you’ve ever seen them you’ll know they come in all sizes and shapes. I’ve even seen them made from porcelain or ceramic which are lovely.

For years I’ve noticed them and have always thought an easter egg topiary tree would one day be a fun addition to my table or counter.

This year, I was determined to make that happen.

Where did Easter topiary trees originate?

Easter egg trees have been around for a really long time. It is thought that they originated in Germany although early history shows that they were also seen in countries like Poland or Hungary.

The symbolism of the egg is predominant with the new life that the Spring season brings as well as rebirth.

I recently learned that during the Medieval times, eggs were forbidden during the days of Lent. Did you know this? I never knew.

This, in turn, years later, gives light on why finding Easter eggs on a hunt has grown into such a fun and wonderful treat!

What is the traditional Easter egg tree?

Easter egg trees can be created inside or outside of your home. Traditionally, egg trees are made from using flower tree branches such as dogwood, cherry, forsythia, or pussy willow branches.

I can envision a dogwood tree with pretty pink eggs hung by velvet ribbons or salt dough ornaments, painted and strung with string.

The possibilities are endless. I made this one last year.

Step-by-step instructions

First, I found a small white pedestal cake stand. Similar to this one.

Next, I got out my handy glue gun and attached the white cone to the top of the cake stand.

Once the styrofoam cone was secure, I started adding the eggs one by one, gluing them to the styrofoam.

For the finishing touch, I filled the spaces with Spanish moss, tucking it into the gap and securing it with more glue.
