Easter Egg Tree Centerpiece

Create the perfect centerpiece for your Easter table... A little Easter egg tree with real eggshells and Easter figures that will be the delight of children and adults alike.

After having a wonderful first day of Spring, lots of sun, nice temperatures and a nice breeze, I'm more than ready to embrace all the soft colors of the season, the flowers, even the cleaning that comes with Spring.

Just kidding :D  As of right now, I'm only ready for flowers and Easter.

On one of my recent visits to a thrift store, the colorful displays on the Spring/Easter aisles totally got me in.

I went looking for something cute to use on my Easter table. There were lots of eggs, baskets, books, but for some reason what really spoke to me were a couple of bunny figures and the two sets of wooden ornaments you see in the picture below.

They stayed on top of my dining room table for about a week until I finally decided on using them on an Easter tree.
small Easter figures for Egg tree
Well, an Easter egg tree where real eggshells are the homes to all of the tiny rabbits and birds and little penguins that came in my two dollar sets, and that's about the total cost for this project if you happen to have all of the other materials as I did.

The materials you'll need:

  • Egg shells - about 18 
  • Small decorative Easter figures (eggs, rabbits, birds, etc.)
  • Acrylic Paints and little brush
  • Cardboard paper(two letter size pieces)
  • Cardboard tube (from wrapping paper or toilet paper)
  • Candle holder
  • Decorative paper
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun
  • Sprinkles, moss, or colored rice to use as a filler ;)


I was collecting the egg shells for quite some time already. My son happens to love a Winter soup where the eggs have to be sprinkled from a small hole you open at the end or top of the egg. So, After using the egg, I kept the empty shells there in the fridge, until I had enough to create the tree. I also used some half shells.

Make those little holes bigger or big enough for the small figures to fit in. Color the inside and the outside a different color. White egg shells would be better. I had to apply three coats of acrylic paint on the outside.

I used lots of pencils that were stuck in a piece of foam. Perfect holders for the shells to dry on.
how to repurpose egg shells

You can find the three free templates HERE and HERE. Trace them onto the cardboard and the decorative paper, cut them out and glue them together. Two pieces of the wrapping paper  or toilet paper tube were cut at 2¼" and one at ¾", cover those with pieces of decorative paper too.

Long pieces of the decorative paper, only ¼" width, were also cut and hot glued to the edge of each platform, as you can see, they make a difference.
Use hot glue to put together the whole stand.

Use hot glue to set the shells on the stand. Place the biggest shells you have on the lower level of the stand. - BE CARFUL - remember they're fragile!
Smaller shells go to the top layers, and set them in place at different positions... one opening looking all the way up, the other down, etc.

Add hot glue to the top of a small candlestick and set the tree on top of it.

Use filler, moss or sprinkles, I didn't have any of those at hand, that's why I used green colored rice to bring the small figures popping out the shells.

5. CREATE A STORY! - Optional

Even though is not required, you can create your own story while setting those little figures in place...

Mr. Rabbit is at work... 

Managing Colorful Egg Chocolate Co. is not an easy task.

Chirpie his faithful assistant is having a difficult day.
