One of my favorite things about living in DC was the Cherry Blossoms. It was even worth having to deal w/ all the extra tourists, just to bask in their beauty. I also lived in Korea when I was little, and I remember driving through forests of them w/ my parents. So Cherry Blossoms just make me happy.
I've wanted to do this project for weeks.
My mom had an entire shelf in her garage of the cheap vases that flowers come in. Several blogs have posted about spray painting the inside of vases to make them look like milk glass. If anyone did a tutorial, leave a comment and I'll link back to it. The quick directions: Wrap the outside of the glass in a few plastic bags. Use masking tape to seal it shut at the top. Spray the paint inside. I gave mine a couple of coats.
Then I cut out a bunch of flower shapes out of tissue paper. I used my Cricut 1.0 (scissors). I hot glued them on a branch. On top of each flower, I hot-glued a glass bead.
I'm in love!
Grand total for my lovely tree= $1 ( for the beads- a guess you could add in another quarter for the spray paint and a few cents for the paper).
