Make An Easter Egg Tree

I wanted a white branch to hang my collection of hand painted blown eggs.
Step 1-Find a tree in the backyard that can spare a branch.
 Step 2- Lop one off.
 Step 3-Trim off all the leaves.
 Step 4-Secure the branch for spray painting. I used a wine bottle.
Step 5- Spray it white. 
Step 6- Wait 20 minutes for it to dry. Use this time to find a container. 
I'm using a Longaberger wine basket. 
I stuck the branch in a short bottle and weighted it with pebbles. 
I then scrunched newspaper to fill the basket and topped it off with moss.
 Step 7- Hang the eggs and find a good spot for it.
 All these eggs are hand painted (not by me).
I put the egg tree on my patio dresser.
 I did this today instead of cleaning my house. So much more fun, don't you think?

Cheers!
