Cherry Blossom Paper Roll Tree Craft – Recycle Craft

Spring is the best time of the year. Winter is over, well except for freak snow storms.  Spring flowers are in bloom. I love the sunny yellow of the daffodils. It is a great time to try a cherry blossom paper roll tree craft.

We will get to spend a lot more time outside, at the park, gardening, and walking a long the river. My daughter loves to dig in the dirt, so we will be planting flowers together.

I always look forward to the gardening season, but flowers and vegetables. Flowering trees are blooming, around here ornamental pears, crab apples, red buds, and cherry trees.

Create your own cherry blossom paper roll tree craft with just a few supplies you should have available.
