Blooming Spring Branch

The girls have been busy crafting up lots of Spring decorations for our home! This Spring branch craft is so bright and cheerful — I cannot wait to put it up on display in our foyer to welcome guests!!
I drew some branches on a sheet of paper with a brown marker, then showed Clara how to scrunch up pieces of tissue paper into balls to form the flowers. This is a great project for recycling pieces of used gift tissue!
She had lots of fun dipping these “flowers” into some glue, and sticking them to the paper!! Extra bonus points for wearing stylish sunglasses while crafting!
I love how the blossoms that aren’t on the branches look like they are blowing away in the wind. Festive, fun, and frugal!
Have fun!!
