The perfect display for Easter - and little ones can help hang the eggs
You will need:
● metal bucket
● container (to fit inside bucket)
● bunch of hyacinths (around 10)
● reel wire
● bundle of birch twigs
● decorative eggs (available from Paperchase or good florists)
Tip: We used painted wooden eggs, but small chocolate Easter eggs will work just as well. Buy hyacinths a couple of days earlier and use when they have opened out a bit.
Place container inside bucket and thread hyacinth florets onto transparent reel wire. Make knots between each floret to keep in place.
Bind twigs with twine and stand in container, then add moss. Push into container and fill to top to secure twigs.
Fill bucket with water and place hyacinths all the way round twigs to disguise container. Hang the lengths of hyacinth-threaded wire on branches. Hang eggs on twigs - children will love this step!
