Spring is in the air!
I can feel it, even though it has snowed the past two days.
My crocus and tulips are coming up.
I always get a little bit dreamy in the spring.
As if I'm not bad enough already.
Blossoms, tulips, rain, everything coming alive and green.
*sigh* I'm full of whimsy today.
So, as you can imagine I have fun decorating this time of year.
Last year I went with bolder colors, but I have decided that I like the pastels the best.
These are not real blooming branches.
Keep reading I'll tell you how I made these.
I made these little wreaths too.
I couldn't live with out a hot glue gun.
But my favorite is this.
My "faux" blossoming branches.
Super easy to make.
Clip yourself some tree branches. Then trim them up and arrange them in a vase or pitcher.
Get some faux flowers, (I think mine came from geraniums)
And pull the flowers off the stems.
Glue them randomly on the branches. Try to glue where a blossom would really be.
Make it as full or as sparse as you like.
Rachael's Tight-Wad Moment:
I have used these same flowers for the past 5 years.
Each year I just pull them off the branches and put them in a baggie to use again.
The hardest part of this project is finding branches, for me at least.
All the trees in our yard are new (the previous home owners never planted any trees),
so I have to scavenge for branches.
But it turns out so pretty.
Happy hot-gluing! Don't burn yourself.
