Well, Easter has come and gone and I suppose that means it's Spring? I'd better get crackin' around here, because I'm still living with our winter decor. That just won't due!
Here is a photo of the bare branches that have been floating around here all winter, some are spray painted white and some are natural. They started out in my kitchen window hung with snowflakes, then moved to my mantle for an minimalist after-Christmas look, then moved down into a container on the hearth:
That's a lot of mileage from a bunch of free branches I picked up out of my yard, huh? Well, I'm not done with them yet. Let's make these babies BLOOM!
Small silk flower stem (I used faux apple/cherry blossoms, $2.99 / stem)
Hot glue gun
Carefully pop off the flowers from the stem.
Hot glue the blossoms randomly and sparsely onto the branches so they look like natural blooms.
Look, it's spring!
Keeping it real...I was gluing flowers onto branches when I was supposed to be folding laundry. Hey, a girl has to have her priorities!
Tomorrow is your chance to link up with your own tutorial for a great prize! (psst! I'll be opening up the post around 10 pm tonight for those of you who want to get a jump on tomorrow...)
