Easter egg tree.
This is a real egg, blown out and decoupaged.
These are styrofoam eggs wrapped in ribbon and decorated with pearl headed pins.
Victorian crocheted egg covers with real blown out eggs inserted.
These are all made from real eggs that are blown out. On the left, the egg is rolled in glue and then seed beads. In the middle, the egg is rolled in glue then wrapped in bead garland. On the right, another decoupaged egg.

I've purchased some beautiful glass and other decorative eggs at Easter time.  I like to showcase them on a branch from the backyard along with the eggs I've decorated that I've featured here.

The egg is a powerful symbol of hope and new life - perfect for spring. Happy Easter.
