Pottery Barn Inspired Spring Blossom Branches

Spring is almost here and I don't know about you but I am so ready.  I love this time of year because everything starts to turn GREEN!  I have really had the springtime itch lately and decided I NEEDED to create some spring feeling in my house...
Garden Trellis Bench
Have you seen all the green in the new Pottery Barn catalog....LOVE...and it is just screaming out for me to sit on that bench and enjoy a warm spring day!
Faux Pear Blossom Branch
I was inspired by these faux pear blossom branches...but for $39.00...I decided to create something similar on my own.
I gathered a few sticks from the yard and spray painted them white.
I picked up some green hydrangeas stems from my local craft store.
Then I pulled off the flowers and hot glued them at each stub(I'm pretty sure that not the technical term...but you know where I mean...right?) on the branch where a normal flower bud would bloom.
And now they look like this...not an exact match...but still the perfect pop of spring in my dining room. 
 

I'm still working on the rest of my "spring" dining room vignette...but check back and I will show you soon!

  6. It's best to knock off everything from PB if you can, totally worth the savings. Job well done Kara, I'm on to the pink branches, hope they turn out as good as yours did.

  16. On my gosh this is brilliant! I too am amazed at the price of the PB flowers...who pays that much? Anyway, it's raining here so I'll have to wait to gather my sticks but as soon as I can I'm making some of these. I found you at Inspiration Friday and am a new follower. I love your blog...very fun. Come visit me if you have time...~Ann
