With summer break on the way, we’re looking forward to some laid-back days and time for fun in the sun! But the change in schedule means we need something to help keep us on our toes, and we are SO excited to add this cute little message board cherry tree to our tabletop! The free printable makes this fun craft a cinch and the pom pom cherries couldn’t be cuter – just add notes and reminders for your own tree-rific board! For more easy printable entertainment your kids will enjoy on a hot summer day, these Printable Pom Pom Ice Cream Cones are a cool way to spend an afternoon pretending. Or start your summer off with some quiet creativity by printing and keeping a DIY Summer Journal, or a Mini Summer Doodle Book.
DIY CHERRY TREE MESSAGE BOARD – MATERIALS:
- Paper or Cardstock
- Free Cherry Tree Printable (download right below)
- Foam Board or Cardboard
- Pins or Washi Tape
Step 1: Print the tree onto a piece of paper or cardstock and cut out around the shape.
Step 2: Glue the tree onto a thick card (I used foam board) and cut around the tree again.
Step 3: Cut a triangle out of your foam board or cardboard to use as the support of the tree
and glue the triangle support on to the back of the tree.
Step 4: Make several pompoms with red wool and tie them up with a brown yarn.
Step 5: Tie the cherries into pairs and glue the leaves onto the cherries. You can gather some pins, or use washi tape to secure
the cherries and the little notes to the tree!
