Cherry Blossoms

I think cherry blossoms are such a beautiful first sign of Spring, BUT — I’m terribly allergic to them. Boo!!! Thankfully, the girls and I crafted up some “allergy-free” cherry blossoms to enjoy in our home. They are so bright and cheerful!!

The girls gathered up some sticks from our yard (Oooo….yardwork and craft project all-in-one), and Emily showed Clara how to make tissue paper blossoms and attach them to the sticks using recycled twist ties. They had so much fun with this!


I always knew I saved those leftover twist ties for something, and using natural materials with recyclables makes this craft super frugal.

Clara was so proud to make the blossoms all by herself — so pretty!

I love how the branches look on display on our kitchen table!

Simple, frugal, and very festive!

Have fun!!

  2. Dear Valerie,

    So all of these years I just thought that spring made you overly emotional.

    Huh. This explains a lot.


  3. Oh, these are beautiful! I love cherry blossoms 🙂

  4. Very pretty! Clara is growing to be as creative as the rest of the family 🙂

  5. Great idea – my kids will have fun finding the sticks!

    PS S cute how your husband always comments : )

  6. Very pretty! And so easy, will try. Thanks for yet another awesome idea, Valerie!

  7. Gorgeous. I love how you have only used recycled resources. We save tissue paper from gifts to reuse and re gift. Perfect and free!
