A Simple Cherry Blossom Art Craft

We have added an extra element of springtime by creating cherry blossom pinecone art. It brings enough of a natural springtime feel into your house but it is beautiful enough to be used all year long!

Using the same painted pinecone flowers as we used for this really sweet clothespin craft, we made a substantially sized piece of art for the wall.
