cherry blossom lights

A couple weeks ago, we showed you how to make faux cherry blossom branches. Well, Instructables user ChrysN went one better and turned dollar store flowers into a cherry blossom light fixture. You might have a bit of trouble finding battery-operated twinkle lights at the dollar store this time of year, but you will definitely be able to get them in the late fall. Or maybe you already have some on hand from last year (like I do! must do more stash-busting!). [how to make cherry blossom lights]
