Make Your Own Blossom Tree: Sarah Cawood’s Spring Home Decor
Looking for a bright and beautiful way to freshen up your spring decor? This gorgeous blossom tree project from Sarah Cawood is the perfect way to celebrate spring! Check out her step-by-step instructions below on how you can turn an old branch from the garden into something beautiful with a little patience, and a sprinkling crafty ingenuity!
Last year, my husband and I pruned a tree in our garden and one of the prunings was just perfect, I thought, for hanging stuff on in the house. I dried it out and the other half (Andy) helped me to anchor it in some concrete in an old margarine tub. It is now our ‘Tree For All Seasons’ – and as such, I’m going to be doing something crafty with it over the changing seasons to mark the passage of time in our house!
First up, SPRING! I had a good old internet research, and found these paper cherry blossoms and buds which were realistic, but didn’t need a degree in paper folding to create… perfect!
All in all, it was a day really well spent!
You Will Need:
- Pale pink tissue paper
- Sharp scissors
- PVA glue
- Glue gun and glue sticks
- Branch (dried out) and either a vase, or something to anchor it with.
- Leaf ribbon
Make Your Own Blossom Tree:
I’m going to carry on adding some different sized blooms to this over the coming weeks before I get cracking (pun definitely intended!) with some Easter decorations for our Seasons Tree.
Now, even when there’s a force nine gale outside and the mercury threatens to drop below zero again, I can look at my blossom tree and know that spring is coming!
Happy crafting you lovely lot!
Love, La Cawood.
