This super easy Paper Christmas Tree craft is great for all ages. You can make…
I love cherry blossoms. Growing up outside of Washington, DC, the cherry blossoms have always meant so much to me–they are spring, they are international peace, and they home –wherever you may be. So, I get very excited about cherry blossom season (also known as spring), and try to do as many related activities as possible.
I found a great paper bag tree craft from Pickadilly Charm on Pinterest and thought “Oh, my girls would love to do something like that for Cherry Blossom season!” And so we did!
Pickadilly Charm has a great “how-to” image on building the tree:
After I created the base, I had my 3 year old help glue on the blossoms. To try and keep the mess down, I took a bathroom cup and filled it with some glue, then gave her a Q-Tip to use as a glue brush. She took this job very seriously and covered the whole tree with glue in no time…and then the table, and then her sister’s coloring book…and then I decided it was time for bed.
Next, I crumbled up pieces of tissue paper and crepe paper streamers (left over from a recent birthday party) and created the “cherry blossoms.” I stuck them to the “pre-glued” branches and voila–all done. One additional tip–sometimes the branches got heavy with the glue and tissue paper and started to droop down–an easy fix is to just twist them up again and try to balance them against other branches. You can also apply more glue around the lower part of the branch for strength.
Well, what do you think? Happy spring crafting!
