Easter Sunday is one of the most special days of the year, and whether you're hopping over to have a special brunch with your family or you’re hosting an elaborate get together, there's one thing to be true: candy will be everywhere. A little trail or treats might go from your kitchen to your child’s bedroom, or maybe you have too many plastic eggs with too many pieces of chocolate (as if there really is such a thing as too much chocolate). Regardless of where you find the candy, we know that the Easter Bunny has made it a priority for your holiday to be sweet. To organize your sugar overflow, we’re here to help with a beautiful way to display all of your goodies.

You love your Christmas tree, so why not bring some of one of your favorite traditions into the Easter season, too? The cute little cones that hang on this DIY Easter tree can be filled with everything from your classic plastic eggs to your favorite spring candies. You can also hang these little goodie bags on doorknobs or on the backs of chairs so that everyone in your party has ample access. Show your kiddos that sometimes candy can grow from trees. All it takes is a little imagination.
