    This is a beautiful idea! Can you tell me how to attach them to the branch?

    1. They are actually not attached to the branch in the picture but I would use some thin wire if I would attach them. 😘

    Thank you so much for sharing these beautiful cherry blossoms. I was wondering if you have any ideas as too what would be the best way to connect them to a branch? Or how to connect to make a garland? I work as a volunteer at a nursing home and think the ladies would love a garland of flowers hanging across their window.

    Thanks so much for this pattern! New to crochet and this is my first try with crochet thread, but I think my first attempt wasn’t too bad 🙂 Thinking about making a little cherry blossom head wrap for baby girl (due in November). Yay!
