Hi, Everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Mine was nice and relaxing - we spent some time with good friends and went to my sister's yesterday for a belated Easter celebration. The weather was finally nice enough for the kids to play outside, and I got a much needed glimpse of spring. This little tree project was originally posted over at Nap Time Is My Time, but I thought I would share it with you (in full) here today, as a little reminder of spring. I'm not sure what yours has been like so far, but around here, we need all the reminders we can get!
Spring has been a little slow to make an appearance around here....we have yet to see a single flower shoot or blade of green grass or bud on a tree branch.....and with Easter already behind us, it's starting to feel way overdue! The good news is that the snow is finally melting, and the bare branches are exposed and ready to be brought indoors.....so, if nothing else, I guess we can start to make our own version of spring!
The supplies for this project were quite minimal. I started by taking a walk through our backyard and finding some branches....
....and then took a trip to Michael's for some washi tape. I decided to spray paint the branches white to give them a fresh, clean look....and then made a bunch of washi flag "buds" on them.
I carried the washi design onto the vase....and then tied some eyelet lace fabric onto the branches for additional buds, until it looked something like this:
I love that it's fresh, bright, and happy.....a lot like spring (or at least my version of it)!
To make your own version, you will need:
I hope you enjoy making your own twig tree... and I hope your spring is fresh, bright, happy, and....here! :)
Thanks for taking a peek inside my Lemon Tree Dwelling....
I hope you feel right at home!
