I wanted a wreath to go over the mirror by our staircase and thought that this would be perfect. It was really easy to make(and cheap!), however a little time consuming. All I did was take brown coffee filters (about $1.50 per package - I used 1 1/2 packages) and color the top of the filters with a black sharpie. Then I took each filter and scrunched it up from the middle, twisting and folding the bottom point. Then I simply glued each filter onto a foam wreath, placing them close together until the entire wreath was filled. You would be AMAZED to look at this in real life and think that it was just a bunch of coffee filters. I LOVE it!
I never thought I was the crafty type. Who wants to make lace doilies and painted ceramics, right? So I steered clear of the homemaker world for a decade or so. I got a degree in culinary arts and counted cooking as my "crafty" side. Then one day I discovered that there is some pretty spiffy stuff out there just waiting to be made, so why not give it a try? AND save money, while I'm at it? It's amazing how much cheaper it is to be resourceful ;), So join me as I jump into the world of crafty moms and attempt to create!
