How To Make Faux Spring Cherry Blossom Branches



IMG_E5907 (2)


Ahhhh Spring is finally just around the corner. I’m starting to see buds popping on the trees and early daffodils peaking through the soil. I love bringing beautiful Spring flowers into my home as the season starts. They just liven up the home and make everything feel so cheerful after the long, drab Winter. In this post I’m sharing a simple and free, blossoming branch you can make for your own home.




One flowering tree that I absolutely love are cherry blossoms. Since we don’t have cherry trees in our area, I use faux stems. However, faux stems and branches can be really expensive. So, I decided to make my own using this simple DIY project.

Supplies needed:

*Cut branches from your yard {select the size and shape you desire}

*Vase or container to hold the branches

*Tissue paper in light pink & white-2-3 sheets for each color


*Pencil with an eraser

*Glue Gun




First, place your branches in the container and trim as needed.




Next, cut your tissue paper into 1″- 2″ strips depending on how large you want your blossoms. Lyer all the sheets and cut all at once.




Then, cut the strips up into squares. They don’t have to be perfect or all the same size. Just roughly cut them into squares, they will look better as flowers if they are more uneven than uniform.




Then layer your squares starting with the pink then alternate with a white, another pink and end with the white.




To make the blossom, take the eraser end of a pencil & place it in the center of your layered squares. Then wrap the tissue around the pencil and pinch at the bottom to hold.

To attach your flower blossoms, place a dab of hot glue on the pinched end and place on the stem and hold until it adheres. Continue to add your flowers making sure you place them at various angles around your branches. Look for places where you might see some buds. My branches actually had some tiny buds on them already.




I hope you enjoyed this super easy and free craft to add some spring beauty in your own home. As always, let me know if you have any questions and feel free to pin for future use. I love hearing from my readers so come say hi and share with a friend.

Happy Crafting!

    Love this idea? Where did you get the corbels on your mantel?? I have been looking for some just like those.

    Hi Sarah,

    I found the corbels at the First Monday Trade Days in Canton Texas. Its a vintage place that sells a variety of wood items. Unfortunately they don’t have a website. I’m searching for a source for some similar because I have several people interested in them.
    Thanks so much for following along. xoxo

    Hi! I’ve been staring at your mantel and corbels for about a year now. 😂 Do you know what type of wood that is used and where you bought it? Thank you!


    December 11th, 2019 at 10:17 pm

    Hi Rebecca,

    We bought the boards at Home Depot. They are a knotty pine wood boards. I found the corbels at a vintage flea market in Canton Texas. Hope that helps and thanks so much for following along, I appreciate it so much.

    What is the size of your mantel. How deep is it?

    Thank you

    Hi Rachel,

    I believe it is about 12-13″ deep after the update.
