Easy Flower Craft: Spring Blossom Bracelets

May 14, 2015

What's more delicious than the sweet smell of spring blossoms wafting through the air? Or watching flower petals gracefully flutter from the trees? Pure magic!

With natural inspiration all around at this time of year, we decided to play with some of nature's beauty by creating these beautiful spring blossom bracelets.

They take moments to create and are a wonderful activity for all ages. And here's the best part: you hardly need any supplies!

You Will Need:

  • duct tape
  • scissors
  • flowers


1. To begin, head outdoors for a little nature walk. Gather flowers along the way. We found dandelions, apple blossoms, wild violets and plum tree blossoms. Aren't they lovely?

2. Take out your duct tape. With the sticky side out, measure the wrist that will wear the spring blossom bracelet.

3. Cut your duct tape to fit the wrist, with a bit extra for attaching the ends and voila! You have a sticky bracelet ready for flowers.

4. Now for the best part! Tap into your creativity and stick the flowers on the duct tape—however inspiration hits.

We found it easiest if you share the fun by having a friend or sibling add flowers to each other's bracelets (not to mention, they make sweet friendship bracelets).

Simple as that! Now you can be adorned with sweet smelling spring all day long!
