Cardboard Tube Cherry Blossoms
Spring is coming and the Cherry Blossoms are trying to bloom despite the late winter snow. You can make your own Cardboard Tube Cherry Blossoms with these easy instructions.
5 recycled cardboard tubes (from toilet rolls)
Glue dots or wall putty
Craft Smart Paint: Espresso, Grass Green, Pink Blast
Paint 2 of the cardboard tubes Pink Blast and paint 2 of them Espresso.
Cut the remaining cardboard tube in half. Paint half of it Pink Blast and the other half Grass Green.
When the tubes have dried completely (they will be stiff), flatten them gently and cut them into: Espresso – 16 equal pieces; Pink Blast - 19 equal pieces; Grass Green – 5 equal pieces
Use a hot glue gun to connect the pieces together to form a branch.
Fold the Grass Green and Pink blast pieces in half to create flower blossoms and leaves and hot glue to the branch.
Hang on the wall with wall putty.
