blue cherry blossom plates and bowls, and some red ones too. Cherry blossoms are so beautiful and delicate.
My daughter helped me make these. In fact, it was her teacher who donated the library cherry blossom tree in the first place. She was actually better at making these than I was. We cut out squares of tissue paper, layered a few on top of each other, and trimmed the edges to a round shape. Then we slightly crumpled the "blossoms", and stuck them onto the bare branches.
DIY Cherry Blossom Branches
pink tissue paper, preferably light pink
adhesive (tape, hot glue, or regular glue)
1. Cut out squares of tissue paper. Layer a few (2-5) on top of each other. Round the edges, if desired. You can also slightly crumple the paper to add texture. You may want to secure each sheet to the next one with a tiny dab of glue.
2. Attach each blossom randomly on the bare branches. A hot glue gun would be best; we only had tape around, and that worked out ok.
