Cherry blossoms and springtime go together like sunshine and happiness. They are my absolute favorite spring blossom. Unfortunately, I have yet to see so much as a single cherry tree here in Arizona – so I’ve made some of my own! These delicate little cherry blossoms have a small strap on their backs that allows them to slide onto bobby pins, barrettes, or even a thin headband so you can put some anywhere you need a little more spring beauty.
