I have a crush on Cherry Blossoms but I mean who doesn’t? I love Pottery Barn’s faux branches but can’t justify spending so much and the branches at the craft stores always seem too pink…or plastic…or something. Then while browsing through Good Housekeeping’s Easter crafts I saw a tutorial on how to make my own Cherry Blossom branch and I just about had a heart attack when I saw how gorgeous it was. Those flowers are made out of tissue paper! Believe it!

Here are the instructions via Good Housekeeping:
Layer a sheet of dark pink paper atop light pink paper. Snip out a five-petal flower that’s 2 to 4 inches in circumference. Once cut, reposition the dark pink daisy so the petals won’t align with the light pink ones. Twist the center bottom of the flower, wrap with a 3-inch length of floral wire, and hot-glue onto a bare branch. Repeat, varying sizes of flowers so blossoms look realistic.
I have two baby showers and two birthday parties this weekend so look forward to lots of fun posts next week! Have a good weekend everybody!
