DIY Cherry Blossom Branches

I pinned this idea on Pinterest a while back and finally got around to making it!
I went to a couple stores looking for branches and didn't find any so when our
backyard tree died, I took it's branches and used them for this project.
That's seeing the glass half full for ya! I turned a dead tree into an opportunity!
lo that rhymes!! Anywho here are my tissue paper cherry blossom branches...
I used an empty glass juice jug for my vase! I just love those glass jugs!
I have two of them! I got mine at whole foods, we drank all the juice
cleaned it off and took off the label using nail polish remover and here
it is all cleaned out..
I didn't add a ton of tissue paper flowers because I
didn't want it to over do it, I wanted a more simple look!
I also added a couple white ones...
and here it is on my dresser next to one of 
the prints I have on my shop... 
I love this! It was so easy to make and I didn't buy a single thing!
The jug I already had, the branches I took off the dead tree and
the tissue paper I had as well! All you need is a glue gun and there
is no right or wrong way to roll up your flowers, just play around cutting 
squares or triangles and once you have a good flower shape glue em on!
I love how the pink brings a bit of girliness to our bedroom! :)

  2. Looks great. I often shy away from 'fake' because I don't like the look but yours look beautiful. So fresh and pretty.

  3. This is really nice to keep the flower plants into glass pots. Yet it is also necessary to look after them properly. I usually try to make this practical true but every time the flowers pot got damaged.
