Dollar Store Egg Tree Makeover

I bought these a few weeks ago at the Dollar Tree, one for each of my kids...Max, Emma and the one brewing in my belly.  I let them hang their eggs and they have been on display like that ever since.  Then, I hopped on over to My Garden of Eden and saw what simple upgrades she made to the exact same trees and decided mine needed fancy schmancy makeovers, too!

Here is what the tree looked like...



I had some ribbon that I bought to use at my daughter's upcoming birthday party.  I bought the spool at Target for $1, it came with five strands of various colored ribbon, I used three here.  Then, I used a glitter pen to write their name on the pot, leaving the third blank...it's just waiting patiently for a name.  (We find out what we're having on April 15th, so hopefully, I will be able to add a name real soon).  And, lastly, I added the moss that I had on hand.  What a difference! 



And, here they are, on their very own shelf...egg trees for each of my babies.  :-)  I decided to do two colors per tree...just my preference.

Very nice! We used to live in Germany, where Easter egg trees are very common. I've always wanted to make one, but never have. I think this year might be the year - thanks for the inspiration!

THIS IS AMAZING! I totally saw the Egg Tree at My Garden of Eden and made my own, but I never would have thought to personalize them! I LOVE personalizing! Thank you for taking the creativity a step further into EGG-stravagance!!!
