Don’t you love free decor? And don’t you love it even more if it looks just amazing? Well then, you will love today’s post! I was so sad when the forced branches I had been babying finally dropped their blooms and were done. They looked so so pretty and I wished I had more. All I had left was a bunch of great bare branches! They were too pretty to throw away. So I came up with an idea of making my own blooms for the branches. These blooms won’t drop or die either! So being a fan of book page creations I make my own book page faux blooms on twigs! Even if you are not crafty, you can do this!!!!

You won’t believe how easy this DIY is and how pretty your branches will look! I chose to use pages from old books to cut out my little blooms, but you could use tissue paper or craft paper or paper bags… You are only limited by your imagination!
I transferred some of the branches to an old enamel pitcher and made a little vignette on my breakfast nook table.
The little flowers are so delicate looking!
Let’s make easy peasy Book Page Faux Blooms:
- flower punch I got mine HERE.
- old pages from a book
- hot glue and hot glue gun
- hair blow dryer (optional)
- Punch out the little flowers from old book pages
- Use thin-ish branches
- Hot glue the little blooms on the branch. Glue on all sides of branches. When flowers are glued and the glue is dried, blow them on the hot setting of a hair blow dryer to get rid od hot glue spiders.
Arrange and enjoy!
