I am not great at decorating for Easter I have to admit but when Emmy Bo the other morning wondered "When are we gonna decorate for Easter Mama?" I thought to myself that maybe this is important to my kids. Luckily they had 50% off the whole Easter decoration department at Coop when I went to buy our groceries and I came home with some cute things. A wreath for my door (love it!!!) a Mr Bunny for our ugly mailbox and colors to play with egg painting this weekend.
But, after all it is the Easter tree, the påskris, that makes my heart feel hope for life this time of the year. I found my twigs on my walk, secretly snipped some of the best twigs off a whimsical small hedgy tree that I think has apple blossoms... I so hope they have apple blossoms... I prepared my small mini flowers, added beads and loops to them, added some pink cute Easter eggs and then I wrapped up some of the delicate twigs with some colorful yarn. Be careful with the buds doing this, if you fancy a try, as I am hoping these buds will turn into both springy leaves and apple blossoms soon. I am curious to see what it looks like in a week or two...
So do you have a Easter tree? What do you call yours in your language? And do you decorate like crazy or not for this holiday?
Do you want to add some crochet mini flowers to your tree as well? Stay tuned, it has taken a while to prepare but the tutorial will be posted very VERY soon.
