Decorating The Swedish Easter Tree

Spring is most definitely in the air…

In Sweden birch branches are put in water and decorated with colored feathers, and sometimes eggs or other hanging decorations to celebrate the coming of Spring.

Eventually small leaves sprout from the buds on the branches making it look very Spring- like indeed!

  1. Loved seeing your Easter tree again! Have it bookmarked to share on Thursday along with a couple others I have saved of yours.

    Somehow, i have missed the part about the sprouting leaves! I love that! Especially for children. Don’t forget about Margit’s little paper eggs – I think Maya and Leon could manage them just fine now.

    • Hi Rachael – In Sweden we have little bits of thin wire wound around the ends of the feathers which can then be attached to the tree branches – would that work for you? They are already attached here for that purpose, but I think it’s a great way to do it – then you can recycle for next year too! ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope it goes well!
