For Mother’s Day this year, Hubs and Caitlin made the cutest craft for me; branches with paper cherry blossoms. It’s beautiful!
I love how Caitlin loves to do ‘projects.’ But let’s be honest, most sweet, well-intentioned crafts that our kids make aren’t something that we would decorate our house with if we didn’t have kids. Please don’t get me wrong. I love seeing her paintings, hand and foot prints, and random stuff that she has glued together. I display them for awhile and then lovingly tuck them into her memory box because I know that those things are so precious. But they aren’t real permanent decoration.
But this one, I’m using as permanent decor in my house. In fact, I put it in our bathroom that we are updating because it’s currently my favorite room in the house.
I had Hubs make a few extra blossoms so that I could take pictures and tell you how he did it.
What You Need:
Green tissue paper
Pink tissue paper
Pen or Pencil
What You Do:
- Cut the pink tissue paper into 1″ x 1″ squares
- Cut the green tissue paper into triangles. I’m not exactly sure what the dimensions should be, but you want them smaller than the pink squares.
- Wrap the pink square around the tip of your pen (or pencil) so that the tip of the pen is in the center of the square.
- Take the pen out and twist the bottom. It should look like the picture below.
- Now set your twisted pink blossom in the center of your green triangle.
- Add some glue and place the branch on it.
- Wrap the green tissue around the pink blossom and branch.
- Repeat. A lot.
