Introduction: Blossom Tree
Add some spring to your home with this easy to make blossom tree. There are probably more instructables wich are kinda similar to this one, though the ones I found used mostly self made paper flowers. I used silk flowers I bought a couple of years ago very cheap for some other project and re-used those.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?

Step 1: Tools and Materials
what you need is;
1. a branch (check your garden or local park after a storm) size doesn't matter, I just happened to be lucky enough to find one that was almost tree size. Ofcourse you can also use smaller ones and put 'm in a vase on your table.
2. plastic coated (green) iron wire. I had it laying around but you can get it cheap at any D.I.Y. store (or use something similiar).
4. silk flowers. Check internet, your local market, 2nd hand store, china town, etc... just be creative and don't spend too much money on them.
5. a vase, pot, container, etc... for displaying your arrangement.
Step 3: Preparing the Flowers
First cut the flowers from their stem.
Cut pieces of the iron wire about 1,5 inch (4-5cm).
Use the wire to attach the flowers to the branch and cut off the access wire.
That's basicly it, add as much flowers as you please.
Step 4: End Result
Pour yourself a refreshing beverage, sit back and enjoy spring in the comfort of your own home.
