A quick & easy Easter project

To celebrate the first day of the Easter holidays, my girlies and I decorated this little Tesco Easter Egg tree in preparation for the Easter bunnys visit. (It comes complete with a little tree in a tin bucket and 12 painted eggs.) This is a really simple project that can be enjoyed by kids of all ages with a pretty finished product to use as a table decoration.
Here's how we did it:

To start, cover the bucket using the reverse side of Sassafras Sweet Marmalade- Handmade paper and then add a Basic Grey - Sugar Rush trim to the top and bottom rim of the bucket. To add a little Spring feel to the tree, glue Prima Frosty Flowers - Sorbet blossoms onto the edge of the leaves and add a little gem to the centre of each. All that is left to do after that, is to hang the painted eggs off the branches and fill the bucket with chocolate eggs of your choice.
