Easter Trees Are Pinterest’s Latest Decor Trend — Here’s What You Need to Make One

We love decorating for Christmas, but we always find ourselves wishing that there was another holiday that featured a pretty tree draped in ornaments and finery as decor. So when we were scrolling around Pinterest the other day and noticed that Easter Trees were trending, it felt like fate. But while you can usually buy a freshly cut  Christmas tree in December, Easter trees work a little differently.

The first thing you’ll need for your Easter tree is, well, a tree. There are a couple of different options here. Some people go for an Easter version of a traditional Christmas tree
, opting for one that’s white or in a pastel color instead of the traditional green.

Another option is to take some inspiration from spring and to use a branch tree as the base for your decor. You can either get a fake, bare-branched tree (we love the birch tree look
), or you can get a few stems of faux pussy willow or cherry tree branches to hang ornaments from.

You’ll want to load your tree with Easter decor. You can find a surprising amount of Easter tree ornaments online, from Target to Etsy. We love these cute options.

If you really want your design to pop then, just like with a Christmas tree, you should string it with lights. We like the delicate, sparkly look of smaller fairy lights
for an Easter tree, but there are some fun novelty Easter string lights
that would look great on your tree, too.

Of course, if you love the look of Easter trees but don’t want to have to put in a ton of work to create one yourself, this cute tabletop Easter tree that comes decorated is also a fun option.

This emerging trend is fun for a lot of reasons, but one of our favorite things about it is that there’s no real blueprint of what an Easter tree is “supposed” to look like, which means there’s less pressure to conform to one style. Just follow your heart when you’re decorating your tree, and the result will be so eye-catching the Easter bunny might even want to stop in to take a quick picture on Easter Sunday.
