In our minds, we’re skipping through esplanades of fluffy pink cherry blossoms in a sundress. In reality...we’re still plowing through slush and snow in our Bean boots. To tide you over until cherry blossom time (aka the true start of spring), try this incredibly beautiful branch tutorial from our friends at Happy Happy Nester. The flowers are so pretty, we bet you didn’t even realize they’re made of tissue paper.

What you need: A few branches, blush-colored tissue paper sheets, a roll of green leaf ribbon, a glue gun and glue sticks, scissors, a ruler and a pencil.

What you do: A nifty little mix of cutting, scrunching and twisting. (Click on over to Happy Happy Nester to see how it’s done.) 

What you get: Spring-ready buds. No water needed.
