Things to Make: Tissue Paper Cherry Blossoms
While the snow has still been falling here for the past couple of days, my thoughts have been turing to Spring. I thought I'd share my tutorial on how to make Tissue Paper Cherry Blossoms here!
Tissue Paper Cherry Blossoms
- Pink tissue paper (I've used both hot pink and light pink)
- Dead branches (I got mine out of the pile of wood pruned from the trees in the fall)
- Hot glue and glue gun
First, fold the tissue into squares about 3" big:
Next cut a five-petaled flower shape out of the folded tissue paper. They don't have to be perfect...in face I think they look a little more realistic if they're a little 'off.'
Layer two of the flower shapes on top of one another, so that you can see the petals of each showing.
Add a tiny dot of hot glue to the center of the flower, and gently scrunch it together.
Here's sorta what they should look like:
Next glue the blossoms onto the dead branch, in places where it looks like something might naturally sprout!
Ta-Dah!! Instant Spring Blossoms! And the best part is that the petals don't fall off and make a mess!
I've had these sitting in my bedroom for over a year now...and they still look lovely, too!
