Easter Spring Tree.....Come look!

I know you wanna see how cute my Easter Spring Tree turned out...  I'm sooo happy with the end result...doesn't it just "shout"  *Spring is here*?   Come have a look see!

 Amy , her daughter Haley and I decided we wanted to create trees.....so, for the last couple days this has been our main focus. 

We've decorated eggs, made cards and boxes with pictures from Karen's site at GraphicFairys (she is so generous), added dead hydrangea's sprinkled with lots of glitter, birds, birds and more birds with their little nests and lace crowns, plaster of Paris to secure the branch/tree sprayed white in the pot, old book pages cut with Martha Stewart scissors stuffed in the pot to give the look of grass, vintage postcards, must have some bling...out came the crystals.   As if the glitter wasn't enough!

Oh, I must not forget the little itty bitty lights that work off batteries strung up the tree and around the branches, secured with wire.

 It just glows at night, but so hard to capture the look in a picture. 

I hope you'll get all a "twitter" and want to create one of these little birdy trees for your house.  It's such a fun project and easy!

  1. Yee haw!! It was such a blast making these. One thing for sure, we know how to have fun! Thanks for getting me into blogland. Now if I only had people who looked at my blog...Hmmm. Oh well I enjoy it.

  2. Hi Sandy! Oh, I love your sweet tree! Look at all of your little pretties too! Now I want an Easter tree! :)
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  3. Wow, this is so beautiful! I love all the sweet little things hanging from the branches. So much detail. I just might have to do this!

    Sandy, sorry that I didn't respond sooner about the Easter baskets I made. I kept forgetting! Anyway, I just painted some peat pots with craft paint, inked the edges with distress ink, and added a wire handle. The embellishments on the front are post card images framed in a chipboard glittered frame. I used brads to attach them. Added ribbon, flowers, and they were ready for "grass", chicks, eggs, and candy.
    Hope this helps. Oh, I got the pots from Walmart, but just about everyone has them now.

    Have fun crafting! Cindy

  4. I love your little bird and egg tree! It is so pretty and whimsical. All of your ornaments are beautifully done. You are so creative, Sandy!
