I have been getting ready for Easter this week. Now I should have been cleaning (and I have a little bit) but what I've really been doing is making things for the Egg Hunt and Brunch we have every year. I found a bunch of coffee filters at the thrift store last week. So I bought them....of course! I knew I had seen, somewhere, where they had turned coffee filters into wreaths, roses, etc.
I searched my favorite blogs and found this on http://tatertotsandjello.blogspot.com/. She took the coffee filters, dyed them and strung them with other paper and fabric and made it into a banner. So yesterday I spent the day dying and drying coffee filters (it really is a good thing my husband loves me). Love the way it turned out.....I plan to hang it over the desserts on Easter, unless of course I find a spot I like better.
Yes I know this picture is sideways, but when I flipped it around I decided I liked it better this way!
Excuse the leave debris on the roof, the oaks in the backyard are making a HUGE mess this week. And I'm waiting till the last minute to clean out there....because it's just going to make a mess again.
I plan on making more to decorate the buffet table.
