An Easter Tree

This has been on my Spring activities list for years but somehow it just never happened! I begged hard for some twisty hazel twigs but my dear husband stood firm and I had to be satisfied with apple twigs! I have a package of tiny wooden Easter decorations to hang on them nearer Easter (also had for years and not used!!).

To adorn our tree we made teeny acorn nests with coloured eggs made from oven-bake clay. I had to glue them into the 'nests' when ready and then glued the nests onto a piece of pipe cleaner to twist around the tree. The Girls made birds to sit atop their nests of eggs and didn't want theirs glued in as if you lift the birds out you can see their eggs stuck underneath!!!!
