In Europe, Easter eggs are often hung on tree branches and bushes. Bring this custom into your home with these charming ornaments embellished with ribbon and trimmings.


  • Eggs

  • Food coloring

  • Egg-blowing kit (available at crafts stores)

  • Ribbons or rickrack

  • Ear-drying craft glue

  • Pearl-tipped pins (available at florists-supply stores)


  1. Begin by dyeing and blowing out eggs.

  2. Attach a band of ribbon or rickrack around the shell with clear-drying craft glue.

  3. Cover a hole at one end of the egg with a silk flower or a small bow; glue in place.

  4. Put a pearl-tipped pin through a ribbon loop, then insert pin into other hole; glue in place.

  5. Hang the eggs from an egg tree, made from an arrangement of pussy willows or flowering branches.
