You can choose from three designs: classic, romantic or contemporary.
We will be using the classic design.
Once you choose a design cut out both blossoms, the large and the small one.
Cut the standard paper sheet (A4) into quarters (A6)
Place the large blossom very close to a corner of the pearlescent sheet.
Next, draw a line around the blossom, using a pencil.
Move the template around, drawing four large blossoms, each close to a corner.
Then, draw four small blossoms in the central part of the page
Cut out all blossoms, one by one.
Use the two remaining sheets of pearlescent paper to make more blossoms.
We are making twelve blossoms in total.
Bend each petal slightly,
using your hands.
Apply a small amount of glue over the centre of the large blossoms.
Place the small blossoms on top of the large blossoms.
Apply a small amount of glue over the centre of each of the small blossoms.
Place a diamante (or a pearl) on top.
Let the glue dry.
Choose an object you would like to decorate.
This could be a branch, a seating plan or napkin holders.
Use glue (or invisible tape) to attach the back of each blossom to the object you are decorating. We used a branch in this tutorial.
So cute. This reminds me of a DIY garland I made for the holidays. Absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing this.
My daughter has a sweet sixteen coming up in June and this may actually be perfect as a decoration for the room. It looks simple to do as well. Going to pass this along and see what she thinks about it. Thank you!
The best part of DIY projects is the finished project and these sakura blossoms look so pretty! Especially the ones glued on branches and the table centerpieces. Love it!
These are so pretty – What a great way to add a little personal touch to your decorations. Not only would these work great for a wedding ceremony or birthday party, but they would also be a great way to add a pretty and personal touch while decorating a room. Just picture soft pink sakura blossoms in a little girl’s nursery.
Very pretty – would look lovely as a wall decoration too.
This looks super fun!!!! I bet you can do these with edible flowers on cakes and cupcakes too. Sakura blossoms are soooo pretty.
These are really sweet, I love how the end results look! These would make some lovely home décor as well and not just for a wedding.
Who doesn’t love a sakura blossom? I used to do a lot of crafts as a kid and a teenager — it can be so relaxing. Making these blossoms could be a great group activity, as well. Many hands make the work lighter.
Sakura blossom looks very pretty. Thank you for the clear instructions on making this simple decoration. It’s nice to see the application of the finished flowers in the image gallery and in the video.
These are so cute! definitely pinning this to try later, I want to make this for my office space/vanity table
I love how it looks with that lace runner. I could never cut them out properly
