For my Easter tablescape this year, I added some fun and natural items to my decor. These new elements were super easy to make and didn’t cost a penny, since I’m kind of a hoarder of decor and craft items. Lol. In this post, I’ll show you the how-to for making your own Easter decor.
The two items I made are the Easter egg tree centrepiece and the moss covered napkin ring holders.
For the napkin ring holders, I started off with two cardboard paper towel holders, a glue stick, some green and brown paint mixed together, and moss ribbon I bought years ago, and didn’t know what to do with it until this project. You can buy it at any craft store though.
After the rolls were painted, I cut them the same width as the moss ribbon.
I then used my glue stick liberally on the paper towel rolls, cut the moss ribbon to size, and wrapped it around the rolls. This ended up being pretty messy, so I would recommend taking your project outdoors for this part. To hold the moss ribbon in place while the glue dried, I used scotch tape.
Here are the completed napkin rings once the glue had dried. I made eight, since my dining room table doesn’t fit any more than eight people.

Moving on to the egg tree, I started with a branch that was one of four branches that were originally cut months ago from a tree that was in my backyard. I’ve used these branches for my Christmas tree topper, my winter tablescape, valentine’s day decor, and now Easter. Wow, talk about a giving tree…..
I had some foam eggs lying around that I purchased last year with the hopes of having some use for them (isn’t that what they always say in those hoarding shows??) shrug…
Anyhoo, I took a needle and thread, and poked a hole in the top of the egg.
Then, I just tied it to the branch.
This process was repeated 15 more times. I then placed the stick in some floral foam, and added some Spanish moss to finish it off.
Here is the finished tree. I love how elegant it turned out.
That’s it for the Sunday post. Thanks so much for checking out my blog post all about homemade decor and crafts. I’ll be back on Wednesday with a new post. See you then 🙂
