Egg-stra-special Easter Tree!

Hi Everyone!  Wow the Easter season really came up fast this year!  I have one more project I thought I'd share, using our Easter Eggs set and our special On the Fence Die!

I lost some clarity it looks like when I sized these down for the blog, so I apologize for that but I think this could be a sweet centerpiece for any table!

The tree itself I purchased from Michaels - and set it in a base I created out of a basket I made using the On the Fence Die and a Spellbinder Scallop circle base.  After cutting the fence die I stamped it with White pigment Ink - using our Woodgrain background stamp-  A square lace doily is nestled inside and I tied a fun brown gingam taffeta ribbon around the base.  I also fluffed up some white shredded filler for the inside.

Around the bottom I cut a stripe of green that I fringed for grass, and nestled some small eggs for 'eggs-tra' fun!

The planter Stick could be put in a real Easter Lily plant or any green plant too!  It is made using a long wooden scour that I attached a Heart shape doily I first distressed with Tea Dye Distress ink.  A colored  Easter Egg and 'Happy Easter' banner complete the front.  This set includes 2 sentiments "Happy Easter" and "Easter Wishes" so you have everything you need for your Easter needs in one set!

Here's another look

This is a bit blurry but you can get a better idea on the entire presentation!

I hope you all enjoy your time with Family and Friends during this Spring season!
