Colorful Spring Branch Craft


Welcome! If you’re new here, you may want to like our facebook page, or subscribe to our newsletter for projects and play ideas to do with your kids! Thanks for stopping by!

The girls have been busy crafting up lots of Spring decorations for our home! This Spring branch craft is so bright and cheerful — I cannot wait to put it up on display in our foyer to welcome guests!!

I drew some branches on a sheet of paper with a brown marker, then showed Clara how to scrunch up pieces of tissue paper into balls to form the flowers. This is a great project for recycling pieces of used gift tissue!

She had lots of fun dipping these “flowers” into some glue, and sticking them to the paper!! Extra bonus points for wearing stylish sunglasses while crafting!

I love how the blossoms that aren’t on the branches look like they are blowing away in the wind. Festive, fun, and frugal!

Have fun!!

  1. Dear Valerie,

    I swear, it looks like Clara is slowly morphing into Emily.

    Love,
    Mark

    • Agreed — however Clara is far more stubborn. I don’t know where she gets that from. O:-)

  2. I love that she has to wear the shades while crafting! This is too cute, and I will have to do this with my two!

  3. Very cute!! I love that she wore her sunglasses while doing it :-)

  4. Mark is right. If hand’t read that it was Clara, I would have thought it was Emily!

  5. I thought it was Emily when I saw the first picture in my reader.

  6. BEAUTIFUL! Also the craft was pretty nice too.

    XO, XO, Grandma.

  7. Just adorable! I love how her project turned out!

  8. LOVE it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. I agree – Clara so looks like Emily! Great colorful craft!

  10. Her glasses are awesome! What a cute personality. I love the blue paper. Very vibrant and cheery.

    I absolutely love this! Very cute! I completely agree with Mark I thought the same thing and had to check the name to make sure :-) Great job as always!

  12. I love all the bright colors!

  13. Adorable and what a simple but fun idea! My daughter is obsessed with all things girlie – flower & heart crafts of any kind are a huge hit. I love the branch design you drew for her. Reminds me of my favorite tattoo on my arm :)

    • You have a tattoo????? I would have never guessed that!

      Me too! (on my ankle)

      Also, love how you list things you are grateful for on your blog — the world needs more gratitude these days!! xoxo

  14. Clara is so cool, she’s gotta wear shades…

  15. Her future is bright of course she needs shades…….

    lovely! what sort of glue do you use?

    Sweet idea. The boys are doing something similar in their school but I like your version and since they have their spring break coming, I will use this for a morning activity before they break out and run crazy outside.

  18. I love this! Your branches look so realistic, that’s the part I’m not sure I can get away with…

  19. Ooh, this is definately going on the list for Autumn craft fun these school holidays. P.S. I agree with Mark – a very blurry line forming between Emily and Clara. I hear the same about my girls who are 3 years apart. The youngest being way more stubborn :)

  20. I like this one. It came out so pretty. The color of the paper just makes it pop!

  21. Love this simple and cute idea to do with the kids. I shared this link to your craft with my readers. :)

  22. Great for little fingers! I would think big fingers would really enjoy it as well!

  23. Just finally got this pinned, with a note that we’ll have to do it for fall. :>) xoxo!

    I just found this craft, linked from a page on raising interracial children. My kids are half-Indian, and this is a fantastic craft for Holi, the festival of color and the beginning of Spring.

    Here’s the link that posted it:

    Thanks so much! It is perfect for us!

  25. Love the tree branch, came out beautiful! We’ll have to do this one.
