Spring flowers: Pretty Spring Blossoms.

Isn’t Spring magical? Colors creep from the greyness of winter… slowly at first, shyly… a few green heads poke out of the earth, one or two colorful blossoms are eager enough to start the trend. Emboldened by the brave, the rest follow until the landscape is a burst of color… pinks, yellows, purples, blues… The trees, the meadows, the fields are bright with life. Spring sings in color and the birds mirror her tune. Yes, Spring is magical!
We have been admiring the beauty of Spring every day and when I asked K if there was anything she really wanted to make to remind us of Spring, her reply was, ‘Blossoms’. Here is our pretty wool version of Springs’ beauty.
All we needed were a few bare branches, wool roving and my trusty glue gun.

We picked out our wool, choosing soft spring colors. We pulled off little tufts and rolled them into balls, warming the wool in our hands. Mr T loved this wonderfully tactile activity.

We chose purple, blue, pink, lavender and white blossoms… cotton candy colors as K called them.
I used my glue gun to put a small amount of glue onto the branch,
And stuck a woolen ball onto every node.
Here are our blossoms… little tufts of spring loveliness!
