If you are a fan of the Love in Blossom
photoshoot that I featured a while back…

**By the way, if you use any of these DIY projects I’d LOVE to see pictures!**
Well…with no further hullabaloo…
DIY Cherry Blossom Branches
Cherry Blossom Branches
Pink Tissue Paper cut into 1 inch squares
Pen or Pencil
The project works best if the tissue paper is cut several sheets of paper at a time and not as a single sheet— 5 layers of tissue paper work best.
Fold tissue paper squares on the diagonal. And then fold again similar to making a paper snowflake.
Round the straight side of the now triangle piece of tissue paper.
Put a notch in the center of the of rounded edge.
Separate the tissue layers and twist around the end of a pen or pencil. Step Three:
Placing a dab of hot glue on the branch attach the tissue paper to the branch using the pen or pencil.
Continue placing the tissue paper on the branches twisting the blossoms around the branch.
Branches can be purchased on-line or found in your own backyard.
***There are similar projects featured on both the Martha Stewart and Good House Keeping websites. I certainly wasn’t the first person to think of this, but I do like how my project turned out.**Sources:
