How To Make Miniature Cherry Blossom Tree

Step-by-Step Instructions

With the right supplies and a little bit of patience, it’s easier than you think to make a miniature cherry blossom tree. To make your own, you will need a wooden dowel, craft foam, hot glue, some acrylic paint and a small paintbrush. Of course, you’ll need silk cherry blossoms as well.

Start by cutting the wooden dowel down to the size you need for your tree. The height of your finished cherry blossom tree will depend on the size of your dowel. Once you have the desired length, sand down the ends to smooth the rough edges. Then, use the hot glue to attach the dowel to crafts foam.

Next, it’s time to paint your tree. You can go with a traditional white or pink color, or any color that suits your preference. Let the paint dry before you start adding the cherry blossoms. To create a realistic look, it’s a good idea to start with the bigger blossoms at the bottom of the tree, working your way up with smaller blossoms. Use the hot glue to attach the cherry blossoms to your tree.

Continue until the entire tree is covered with blossoms and is to your satisfaction. To add a further touch of realism, you can lightly spray the blossoms with hairspray. Finally, stand your little tree in a beautiful pot or vase and place it on a flat surface. And you’re all done!
