    My Egg Tree

    Posted by  ·  March 27, 2009

    is one of my most favorite things!  I have collected these eggs for years.  A friend helped me take these awesome pictures.

    It is hard to see the scale but it is huge.  I used limbs (branches are too small) from a tree in our yard. Our tree is filled with memories of places we have been and moments shared with friends.  I am amazed with the skill of crafters all over the world to create these beautiful eggs and wooden clips.

    Many of the eggs are from Germany where our family spent five years.

      Someone thought a painted tree would look good. No an Easter tree should ideally have some buds, representing rebirth and the beginning of spring. I haven't put our decorations out yet but it always make Spring seem closer when we do.

      And since I've started writting comments today, thank you for the wonderful crochet patterns for the heart garland and the clover garland. I enjoy all types of creative outlets. I made these garland with some left over opal sock yarn ( in appropriate colors). They decorated my home and recieved many compliments.

      This is the first message I've ever sent!!! This is truly pleasing. I love the variety, and to display them on actual branches. It's inspiring to say the least. thank you.

      That is so neat! So many pretty decorations! Isn't Germany where the egg tradition started? I remember in college reading something like that in a cultural anthropology class.

      Your adorable tree reminds me of the one my grandma had when I was growing up. When she pasted on my mom inherited all her homemade eggs. So wonderful. Love your tree, thanks for the memory.

      That is a beautiful tree. If you use real eggs and hard boil them they will keep and eventually the egg will dry up. Store in an egg carton and each year the shell becomes harder. Plastic eggs can be decorated nicely, too.

      • cindylouh

        The clips are from an area in Germany, the Erzgebirge, known for nutcrackers and other beautiful wooden toys.
    45. Friday, March 27th, 2009

    52. Friday, March 27th, 2009
      What a beautiful tree and a fantastic idea ! You've made me want to start my own. Now if I can just figure out where to find the eggs...
    53. Friday, March 27th, 2009
      it's beautiful!
    54. Friday, March 27th, 2009
      This is such an awesome idea! Love the height and your eggs are wonderful!
    55. Friday, March 27th, 2009
      That is exactly what I wanted to do 3 years ago - I hand painted eggs for my daughters for the 1st Easter and I wanted to do it each Easter but I never got around to making the tree part. Ugh! I am sad that I never did it. What a beautiful job! I may have to get creative soon and finally do it. Question: How do you store your eggs so they do not get broken. All of the eggs I painted broke!!!

        The tree part is new each year----just some branches from a tree. I store most of the eggs in a plastic storage container for Christmas ornaments (if they are really delicate I put some tissue paper in the space). I have some also stored in egg cartons.
    56. Friday, March 27th, 2009
      Love it! Wow- it is beautiful..... And I love how big it is, what a statement!
    57. Friday, March 27th, 2009
      I also have an Easter tree that I adore! Mine is on a white tree but I love how yours looks so pretty! Maybe I'll have to try that next year!
    58. Friday, March 27th, 2009
      the eggs are beautiful...and i love the display.
