Paskris – ‘Feather Trees’

Standard

Did I mention how impatient I am getting about spring?  We had more snow this week, yet there are some flowers starting to pop out of the ground. Time to decorate the house for spring!  We made these sweet ‘feather trees’.  Traditionally used in Scandinavian countries as ‘Easter trees’ they are used to decorate at a time when not much is blooming. Basically you decorate the branches and then keep them in water to watch the buds grow into leaves. It involved colored feathers and pipe cleaners so my kids were thrilled!

As always, free instructions are available here
