Tu B'Shevat, the Jewish holiday which celebrates the New Year for the trees is coming up next Tuesday night, so it certainly is time to get crafting! As you can see that hasn't exactly happened around here as I have been swamped with other work and obilgations, but I hope we will squeeze out some last minute crafts as this is truly a fun holiday for which to make decorations! And a holiday just wouldn't be a holiday without crafty decorations, right?
How about making a cute and colorful cherry blossum tree or almond blossum tree from just cardboard and tissue paper?
This tree just makes me smile every time, so get out the pastels, some paper and some recycled cardboard, and have fun making this kid's blooming tree craft with pastel circles.
The fleece pom pom flowers that have been in my header for some time now are perfect for Tu B'Shevat, and you can of course make them in pinks and whites to refect blossoming almond trees, which is the first treet to flower here in Israel, usually right around the holiday.
Pomanders with cloves are lovely and making some that look as good as these do is really quite simple if you follow my simple instructions!
A winter topiary can be so pretty that you'll enjoy it year round, so keep your eyes open for some vintage flowers like the ones I used here and you're all set!
That is it for this ilttle inspirational post, take a look in the Tu B'Shevat Crafts archives for many many more ideas, and stay tuned for some super quick ones that hopefully will be happening at our place!
