DIY Spring Twig with Felt Blossoms

We are so blessed to have early Spring flowers in our garden. There is something so exciting about watching those fresh, new leaves push their way up through the ground. It's still a little too soon for them, so to tide myself over I made some faux blossoms for my kitchen.


-salvaged twig or small branch
-bit of felt (I used two shades of yellow)
-hot glue gun
-3 templates of varying sizes (large, medium, small) in the shape shown above, they will need to be sized according to the size of the branch  

1. Cut out three petals for each branch tip the twig has. My branch had five tips, so I cut out six large petals to cover two of the tips, and nine medium petals for the other three tips.

2. Put a line of hot glue along the bottom straight edge of the petal and wrap it around a branch tip. Layer the other two petals on in the same fashion to cover the tip of the branch.

3. Repeat until all of the branch tips are covered.

4. Cut out a handful of petals from the smallest template to glue along the twig at varying intervals. Check the branch for knots or budding spots- these are natural places to glue these small petals. Place only one petal in these spots.

5. Stick the branch in a jar and enjoy it!

This is such a fun and easy project! Literally any color can work for the felt blossoms (choose something that will match your decor). Have fun brightening up your space!
