In Scandinavia, they celebrate the Easter holiday a little different than here in the US. Children dress up as cute, not scary, witches and go door to door asking for candy. Similarly to Halloween in America. They also eat an abundance of eggs, and no, not just chocolate eggs, but real eggs. Think hard boiled eggs filled with creme fraiche, dill, shrimp, and lemon. But my favorite element of Scandinavian Easter decor? Påskris! Påskris are brightly colored feathered branches that seem to pop up everywhere in Scandinavia around spring time.
Inspired by their tradition, we made a DIY paper Swedish Easter tree last year that we absolutely loved. Consequently, we decided we needed to create another rendition! The result is a Swedish Easter Wall Hanging that features marbled paper feathers, crepe paper eggs, and gold leaf detail. Swoon! We took advantage of the mild spring weather and scavenged for branches outside to create ours, but you could buy some branches at your local craft store as well. This Swedish Easter wall hanging would look lovely on a front door, to welcome in guests for Sunday Brunch!
