DIY paper Swedish Easter tree


Last year I had a reader ask if I could come up with a cheap and easy Easter centerpiece for the table. Well, a year later it’s coming true! Påskris it is! This one is cheap and easy though a bit time consuming.

Påskris is a Swedish Easter tree that I caught wind of while living in Scandinavia. I’ve been wanting to do my own version for ages now so this year was the year! They’re usually made with real feathers and painted Easter eggs, paper roosters, pipe cleaner witches, crochet catkins, and yarnball chickens (????) but I decided to keep it to paper feathers. I love the movement they created.

It would make a great centerpiece for an Easter table or just a fun decor statement for the house. And if you’re making decorations for a party, just make the arrangement smaller in scale to cut down on labor and costs.
