Blossom Branch Arrangement

Hi everyone! I am thrilled to share this upcycling craft with you. We'll be using only a few materials, and what's even more exciting is that I already have all the required materials with me. However, if you need to buy some materials, you can get paint from Walmart for only $0.50 each, and craft foam from Dollar Tree for $1.25. You can also find floral at Dollar Tree or any craft store at a discounted price.

Materials 
ONE CANDLE JAR- I AM REUSING A $3 CANDLE JAR FROM TARGET
CRAFT FOAM BLOCK
ACRYLIC PAINT- I'M USING ANTIQUE WHITE AND BRIGHT MAGENTA
FLORAL
FLORAL SNIPS
ONE TREE BRANCH- I AM USING A BRANCH FROM ONE OF MY TREES
ONE PAINT BRUSH
HOT GLUE
One Paintbrush


To start decorating your candle jar, apply acrylic paint on it. It's best to mix two colors of paint and apply them using a brush. Allow each coat to dry first before applying the next one. To speed up the drying process, you may use a blow dryer. Apply around three coats of paint to achieve the desired color and texture.

Next, take your scissors, or if you have a craft knife, use it to split your foam block in half. Depending on the size of your candle jar, be sure you cut it to a size that will work with your jar. 

Take your foam block, and add it to your glass jar.


After, take your branch and insert it into the middle of your foam block. I decided to use a branch I cut when my husband and I were doing our spring cleanup in our yard. We had a few trees that we had to trim, and I thought it would be perfect to use a few of the branches for projects.


Using your floral snips, begin to cut the tops of your faux floral. You can also cut some of the greenery as well. 

Take your hot glue, apply it onto each floral piece, and add your floral onto your branches.

Next, take your greenery, and apply your hot glue to the top section of your foam block. I did this to cover any areas where my foam block was visible. 



You're all set! Your blossom branch arrangement is complete. I enjoyed how easy it was to create, and I'm glad I had all the necessary materials. I hope you had fun making it with me. Thank you for joining me, and I look forward to seeing you again soon.
