Cherry Blossom Twig Arrangement
Gather a collection of various sized twigs. Remove any leaves, smaller twigs or other items from the twigs.
Apply hot glue to the back of one twig at a time. Lay the twig on top of a grapevine wreath form. Repeat with each twig, arranging them so they all face the same direction, or place them in a haphazard arrangement. Cover the entire wreath form with twigs.
Cover the front of the wreath with spray glue. Hold the wreath over a dustbin and sprinkle glitter over the top of the wreath. Shake off the excess glitter.
Place a drop of hot glue on the back of fake berries. Place the berries onto the twigs in a pattern or in a haphazard manner.
Tips and warnings
- To further embellish the twig wreath, tie a decorative ribbon into a bow and glue it to the front of the wreath.
