The Easter Tree!

Happy Easter! I'm one of those people who likes to have a tree (or two or three) for every holiday. And this is my Easter tree. I just finished those ornaments yesterday - nothing like getting something done just in the nick of time!

If it looks familiar that's because Martha Stewart magazine had a tree like this on the cover about four years ago and that's where I got the idea and the directions. You can see the directions on Martha's website here.

Each styrofoam egg is slowly and tediously wrapped with perle cotton thread and Tacky wasn't that only took about 30 minutes per egg.....
And then I added all sorts of pretty ribbon and flower embellishments from Tinsel Trading Company and Michaels.....and I even dyed some leaves with Rit Dye so they'd perfectly match the green thread on some of the eggs.....
And now they're all happily perched on my fluffy white feather tree....

I hope you're having a wonderful Easter weekend. I'm gonna go nibble on some Easter candy now!
Happy Sewing,
