With a few easy steps you can bloom an adorable look-a-like tree. The kit includes, 10 brown pipe cleaners, 10 pink pipe cleaners, a pack of borax, a pack of white crystals and string wire.
DIY Cherry Blossom: Step-By-Step
- Take 5 brown chenille stems, fold in half. Twist the bottom half of the stems to create a trunk shape.
- Secure the trunk with the wire
- Shape the top half of the chenille stems into branches. Add more brown chenille stems to main branches. The more the better. Cut stems to shape the branches.
- Wrap the pink chenille stems to the end of the branches and prune the tree to fit in display.
- Add powdered borax to boiling hot water in a glass container. Stir the solution until fully dissolved. Use a smaller container for better results.
- Hang the tree on a stick upside down and soak the branches in the borax solution for about 12 hours.
- Remove the tree from solution, carefully dry the tree for better placement.
- Tape the trunk on the wood base. Cover the base with clear crystals.
- Cover the glass dome.
