Before the week comes to an end, I wanted to share a project that I just did recently.

I am working on the rest of my Spring decor now and, once again, I am changing the look of decor items I already had.
I normally don't decorate with pink, but I thought this year I try something different. 

It is not quite finished yet, since I still want to add some ribbon or embellishment to the vases. 
This is a very easy project, but very time consuming. 
As long as you have about three hours of free time to cut, cut, cut, you are good to go. :)

I did start with spray painting the vases I used for Christmas on my mantle. Remember those?
I used "Heirloom white" because I already had it on hand.

 I also used the same branches only I painted them in a darker bronze color.

I had a bunch of tissue paper from Dollar Tree and I just used the two different shades of pink.

 Now, to make the flowers, I made myself a little template with cardboard paper because I am not very good at cutting. :) 
As you can see, even the template is not perfect, but it didn't matter, it still worked out just fine.

 I cut several small pieces of tissue paper, used my little template to cut the shape of the flower, placed the two different colors together, pinch and twist the ends, add a little drop of hot glue and start attaching to your branches.

 And this is what the finished product looks like.
I made two of them which I hope to be able to incorporate with my Spring decor 
once I finish adding a little pretty to the vases.

 What do you think?

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
We are expecting rain, which we need badly, so I think this weekend is going to be used to finish some indoor projects.

Thank you for stopping by!

  9. I agree with Laurel, I thought it was a real plant in the first photo! That looks amazing, Maria Elena! Easy, but time consuming -- I seem to take on a lot of projects like that!
