Easter Twig Tree DIY ~ Simple & Rustic Decor

Make a super easy and frugal Easter twig tree with just a few items from the dollar store! You don’t need to spend a lot to have beautiful rustic Easter decor.

Hi Friends!  I am in love with this super easy and frugal Easter twig tree I made to add to our Easter decor.  For the Easter service at our church and Ladies Night Out, I made DIY Easter centerpieces for 12 tables and extra decor for side tables and the lobby. 

This Easter twig tree only cost a few dollars and was so easy to make. It was super inexpensive since I got my Easter tree ornaments at the Dollar Tree (one of my favorite places)!easter twig tree ornaments diy

Twig Easter Tree Tutorial

There’s really not a long tutorial on how to make an Easter twig ree.  I bought a couple of packages of glitter foam Easter egg ornaments (found here) and spray painted them so they weren’t so bright looking. 

I put all the Easter egg ornaments in a box and shook them around while I spray painted a couple of different paints that I used in my plastic Easter egg makeover.Easter tree decorations

For the twig tree, I just found a couple of branches on the ground under a tree while we were out looking for twigs to make crosses with. I tried to get branches that spread out so the Easter ornaments would hang from all sides off the twigs. 

If you don’t like the color of the branches, you could always spray paint them to make a white Easter tree or a brightly colored twig tree if that’s the look you are going for. 

If I couldn’t find a huge branch, I tied a few together with a zip tie and put them in a Dollar Tree glass vase.  Then I surrounded the base of the branches with more mini foam eggs and plastic grass purchased at the Dollar store.

Then I just added lace burlap ribbon around the vase and hot glued on a wooden faith word sign I found at Walmart to give it an even more rustic Easter feel.  I painted the Faith wooden sign with chalk paint and added dark wax on it to age it.

We put two on our welcome tables and on our outreach table at church but you could also pair them with these easy Easter decor signs.Easter tree decorations

I used the other twigs we collected to make a simple Christian based Easter cross decoration as part of my Easter home decor.  easter cross decor

I also used the twigs to convert Dollar Tree eggs and baskets into an elegant Easter centerpiece with a wood cross attached to them.
