Spring Bud Branch

Since spring is around the corner, here’s an idea you can steal for a spring display.

Step 1. Trim a small branch from a tree.

Step 2. Pull a galley you’ve already read.

Step 3. Tear a page from the galley and tear it into a 3″ square. (Hand torn edges are best.)


Step 4. Pinch in the middle of the square and form a bud.


Step 5. Glue “bud” to the end of a branch.


Step 6. Repeat until you have the desired effect.


Display with gardening books or any other “spring” display.
