i think 2011 is the year of no seasonal decorating for me! totally unintentional, but true.
knowing that easter was coming soon, i felt like a teeny bit of decor was needed, so i shoved some of the cherry blossom branches i had made for this shower into the urns i already had sitting on my mantel.
i think i originally bought the branches at michael’s.
if i was a good blogger i would’ve taken step by step pics of this. or maybe i did and it was just so long ago i don’t remember!
either way it is super easy and probably doesn’t even need pics for you to get the idea.
i used light pink tissue paper, folded in layers, and free hand cut out a circle. then i separated the layers of tissue circles, took one at a time and just pinched the center of each circle. then i did a little twist to secure it (you can see it really close in the pic above). i added a dab of hot glue to various joints in the branches and stuck the paper cherry blossom to it. easy peasy. i think white would be really pretty, too.
my urns already had what i needed inside: floral foam covered in reindeer moss.
i’d love to have a blossom bearing tree that i could snag a branch or 2 off each year, but our fruit trees are too young for that, so for now these fake ones will have to do!
