OK, you bought a cute feather tree for Christmas and now it's in storage for a year. Well, ... why not use it for Easter, too?! It makes a perfect "egg tree" for all your keepsake Easter egg ornaments.
OR, make this silk floral cross for a more literal image of this Christian holiday. Add it to your egg collection or, make several in a variety of Spring colors to fill the whole tree. This visual reminder of the true meaning of Easter is unique and lovely holiday decor. If you don't have a feather tree, no worries – a freshly snipped budding branch from a real tree is a sweet spring substitute. Or, simply fasten the cross to a drawer pull with ribbon! (You may also purchase a feather tree here.)
To make the cross: Use small silk flowers with a couple inches of wired stem attached. Twist the stems together into four 'arms' of a cross. Then, wire the four pieces together to form the cross shape. Add a small ribbon for hanging. Accent the tree with wide sheer coordinating ribbon.
