I absolutely love fresh flowers, but it can get very costly to keep getting fresh flowers all the time, so faux flowers are next best thing especially when it comes to interiors. I have always loved cherry blossom trees and making one was always on my list to do. Many tutorials were so fiddly and involved lots of paper cutting, I decided to instead do it the easy way. The best thing it is very cheap to do too!

I found these faux hydrangea flowers at a local shop, I think it cost around $3 on sale. The colour was perfect and it had so many flowers I only needed one hydrangea.

I separated each petal and painted the inside of each flower using some acrylic paint. You don't have to be artistic or too perfect with it either.. it took me around 10 minutes to do.

I then got a dry branch from the garden (free!) and started gluing the little petals individually using a hot glue gun, until the whole branch was covered. And that was pretty much it!!

      I also wash my silk flowers when they get dirty. I would caution against using bleach as it turns some fabrics yellow. If needed, soak in OxyClean mixed in warm water for a little while and then rinse.

    How large is this? Looks about 1 ft . Hard to tell from the close up pics.
