I am just LOVING this easy Easter tree for Easter farmhouse decor. It’s a quick way to make a really stunning piece that looks like high-design!
Easter Tree for Easter Farmhouse Decor
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we have SUCH a good time making farmhouse decor projects that are super fast and fun. One of my favorite times to decorate for is Easter (I mean, besides Christmas and Halloween…then there’s Valentines…who am I kidding?! I love them all!). And I decided this year to make a ton of new Easter crafts to fit my farmhouse decor. This weekend it was a cute and easy Easter tree made with foam easter eggs and moss.
I’m not kidding, this was so super quick, you’ll be surprised when you’re done. If you can find the easter eggs that are already cut in half or the plastic ones that you don’t have to cut, even better because that’s honestly where I spent most of my time. Ready to make a fun Easter craft in minutes?! Then, let’s get started.

Tips to Make this Farmhouse Easter Craft
- I adore the little gold foil flecked Easter eggs on this tree. They’re what inspired me to make this fun farmhouse Easter craft. And I understand that they can be found at some Dollar Tree stores. Mine was a no-go. So, I found them here. They’re beautifully done, with lots of character and I love how they turned out.
- Initially, I thought it would be fun to put little mini bunnies like these on the tree. But they turned out to not be my style. However, I still love them. So, I left them off. But – they’re still really cute. So, you decide for yourself if you love the bunnies and need them on your Easter tree.
- My paper mache cone tree had a handy bottom on it that allowed me to have a little flexibility with the bottom of my tree. I found this at my local craft store, so you can look for one there. But if you can’t find one, an easy work-around would be to seal the bottom of the cone with some cardboard, then follow by adding a wood round that’s slightly smaller than the base of the cone to the now sealed cone bottom. This will sort you right out!
How Do I Make this Easter Tree for Easter Farmhouse Decor?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- 1 - 12-inch Paper Mache Cone Tree
- 10-15 - Foam Easter Eggs in Various Colors
- Craft Knife
- Hot Glue Gun & Glue
- Cut each of the foam eggs in half lengthwise using the craft knife.
- Working from the bottom of the paper mache cone (not the base piece, but the beginning of the tree proper) start gluing on the egg halves. Work one layer at a time, placing the eggs side-by-side, separate the colors by at least one or more other color eggs. Make sure to place the eggs vertically, not horizontally.
- Continue gluing the eggs onto the cone, nestling the next row up between two eggs from the lower row. Work all the way up to the tip. It is ok if, as you work closer to the tip of the cone, the foam inside of the egg is exposed. We will cover that with moss in the next step.
- Once the the eggs are all in place, working from the top toward the bottom of the tree, hot glue moss between the eggs, hiding any exposed foam as well as any exposed cone.
- When you reach the bottom of the cone, cover the base with moss, using hot glue to affix it in place. Then enjoy!
