It’s almost time for cherry blossom (sakura) season again! It’s one of my favorite times of the year, so I wanted to make another crafts post dedicated to the bloom.
If you’re into cross stitch, mirkrestikom’s Etsy shop has an adorable cross stitch kit for sale that features a panda on a sakura branch. It’s reasonably priced and includes all the supplies you’ll need to create the project.
SCK’s own Natasja also has a super cute tutorial on her blog Kaoani that shows you how to make a magnetic sakura tree clip. I love that it also functions as a bookmark!
If you’d like some festive décor to hang up for the season, Niceno1 has a great tutorial that shows you how to make an origami sakura wreath. I’m seriously considering buying some solid origami paper just so I can make this and hang it on one of the doors in my house.
For an alternative sakura paper craft that’s a little more intricate and challenging, check out SimplePaperMade’s DIY cherry blossom wreath video. This one is smaller, so I think it’d be a really cute idea to make multiple and then turn them into a garland! They would also work well as ornaments.
An easy polymer clay project for beginners can be found with Creative Rachy’s sakura flower tutorial. It’s very simple and the finished pieces can be used for a multitude of other projects: jewelry, key chains, use them to decorate a picture frame…the options are endless!
And for a more detailed clay project, check out Creative Rachy’s kawaii sakura tea cat DIY. While the supplies she used originated in a subscription kit, they can also be found on Sophie & Toffee’s website.
While it may be more a challenging project since it requires real cherry blossoms, I thought it was still worth mentioning minicuteclub’s DIY cherry blossom phone case, as it was just so pretty! It may be possible to achieve a similar look using faux flower petals or maybe even air dry clay to form your own petals.
