Living in the Washington DC area, cherry blossoms signal the beginning of Spring. The National Cherry Blossom Festival kicks off this weekend with events and activities for the entire family. With approximately 3,750 cherry trees on the Tidal Basin, they are a must-see if you're visiting the nation's capital this time of year.
The beautiful, blush pink blossoms can last up to 14 days, but here's a simple way to create cherry blossoms that will last all year round. For this project, you'll need Brides table confetti in pink and green shimmer, tree branches, corsage pins, 7mm washi tape, and a glue stick.
1. Pierce the corsage pin through the center of the pink flower, then snip off the sharp end to make a 1/4" long stem. Be extra careful when cutting the pin so it doesn't go flying everywhere.
2. Tape the stem onto a branch using washi tape.
3. For the leaves, cut the green flower as shown, and glue it around the branch.
