Cherry Blossom DIY

I think this is the easiest DIY ever. Really.

Want to get the most out of your Cherry blossom stem?

Blossom branches are everywhere!

Love em.

But just can't get past those hideous plastic wire things they call stems.

So I braved the cold and found a stick in the back yard.

Yes. I. Did

This stick just so happened to have some tiny blossoms of its own.

Work it!

The flowers just pull right off. Easy.

Then you just sick em right on your branch. Easy.

You can even add a dab of glue if you would like.

I kinda felt like Mother Nature....ha!

I then stuck my blossom branch in a container and filled the bottom with tissue paper.

Shoved moss around the outer edge covering the tissue paper.

What would a blossom branch moss covered tissue concealed container be without....

A sweet lil nest!

I don't glue a thing.

Just get the idea :)

For some reason my camera was acting wonky....

It would not let me take a good picture.


Because of wonky camera you can't see the many sweet blossoms


Now with the money I saved on branches

I bought more moss


to be cont.

  1. Oh my what a fantastic idea!! I just bought some apple blossom sprays at Big Lots the other day but was thinking the same thing about the branches!

    Just wish I could find a mossy great looking branch like yours!! Too dry around here for moss though you wouldn't believe it for all the snow we have on the ground!!

    bee blessed

  2. I LOVE this idea!! You are brilliant. One of my favorite things is adding those first touches of spring to my home. It helps bring spring into my cold winter heart.

  3. Susie! This is absolutely genius!! I LOVE it!! Cannot wait to see what you are going to do with the rest of the moss!! ~ Tina x
