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!!

    Those really turned out lovely! Good tip about the bread ties.

  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!

  8. Cute craft and I love your tablecloth!
