You will need:

1.  A sheet of paper

2.  Brown paint

3.  A paint brush

4.  Popcorn

5.  Glue

Step 2.  Glue on the popcorn.

Glue a kernel of popcorn to each branch.  They will look like the white blossoms on a tree in spring.

Flowering trees are one of the most beautiful sights in the spring.  As the weather warms, fruit bearing trees erupt into bloom.  Cherry trees are famous for their beautiful blossoms and in many cherry growing areas celebrate blossom time with festivals.  Citrus trees are famous for their delightful scent which can permeate the air all around the blooming groves.
