DIY Cherry Blossom Branches

Now that you've seen my SPRING DINING ROOM,

 I'm sure you noticed this special focal display I was bragging about too - my DIY Cherry blossom Branches.

I decided to DIY this one, because for the length and amount I wanted, Buying them would end up being too costly! Even on sale, the available Cherry Blossom branches I've looked at are either, too short, or not the right color, but mostly, EXPENSIVE.

So when I made my Spring wreath...


I thought why not use the dollar store Cherry blossom for my branches?!
I love the colors and the price was so right! However, they come this way...

Not exactly the Long Flowy branches I was picturing
So I got my GLUE GUN  and gathered some Branches outside...

And I just cut them off from the main branch and glued away.
You can see how it's connected in the close-up picture above.

I thought of adding flower tape, but really, unless your looking very closely, the attachment is hardly noticeable at all.

These were only some, I made a lot more!

I ended up getting 21 pcs. of the Dollar Store blossoms to make 25 tall branches.

Here are the other branches in the Living Room
I really am very happy with the results. 
And since I change my mind so quickly, going inexpensive and practical is the best way for me. 
Now, I'm even planning on making other branches! We'll see. ;-)

On a personal note, today my little Sophia turns 6 months!!!!!

The smile that makes my day!

Unbelievable I know, time flies so fast! But I'm happy to see how much she's grown and daily, becoming her own little person! Such a happy baby, I cannot complain one bit. Always ready to give her charming smile and always interested in every little thing!

Love you so much my sweet little girl!!!

Hope you all have a Wonderful Weekend!
