The branches were another part of the bunch I picked a few weeks ago from around the neighborhood, you can read about that HERE. They are still trimming the trees in my area. The piles of branches are now even bigger, but I'm already done with tree branch projects for the time.
This is a very easy project that gives you a lot of Easter spirit for a few dollars. I gave it a twist with Jelly Beans filling the base and that's how it went a bit pricier than I anticipated. Oh well, we are going to be enjoying them later on ;)
I got a big glass container for the arrangement and a smaller one to fit inside it. The small container was the perfect size, it gave me a small clearance around it to place the Jelly Beans. The only problem was its height, too short. Looking around the house for solutions I found these foams Hubby had in the basement. I cut the circle shapes and put them at the bottom, securing them with tape.
With the first foam inside I began filling around with Jelly Beans.
Second piece of foam, second layer of Jelly Beans.
Now it was time to insert the small container. Floral foam was place inside this small container to hold the branches.
You can see the process with this nice Photoscape Animation:
At the top I cut a piece of cardboard to keep the final layer of Jelly Beans from falling into the small container.
The final step was to hang the eggs on the tree branches. Easy, right?
You can check how it looks adorning my Easter Tablescape HERE.
Have a wonderful day!
