First I collected a handful of branches which had fallen in our back yard over the winter. I trimmed the ragged ends, then pushed them into a block of oasis. I made sure that the branching ends were aimed outward to look more natural. Some rocks on top of the oasis stabilizes the base. Lastly, I hung our assorted decorated Easter eggs and other ornaments. To help the tree look less like a dead branch I created little tissue paper puffy flowers and taped them to most of the branch tips using floral tape.
