We currently have a ton of projects going on around here right now, one of which is having our hall bathroom remodeled--always awesome right before you go out of town, right? It should be finished up today, and we'll be back to having 2 toilets in the house. Woohoo!
But I've wanted to throw this wreath together for a while now, and not being able to leave the house (since we've had workers here) gave me the opportunity to get it done.
I made colored coffee filters the same way I did for my yellow wreath in my porch makeover.
I used paint to make red and blue colored water and dipped the filters down in it.
When they dried (helped by my hair dryer) I cut them into flower shapes (several filters at a time).
I cut a circle out of cardboard (doesn't even have to be perfect, but the rounder the better of course :) and painted it white.
Then to assemble it, I made blossoms by pinching the center of each coffee filter and pulling it down into a "badminton birdie" shape. Then with my glue gun I glued 3 of those together, just at the point.
Then I glued 4 blue blossoms down on the top left part, and filled in the rest with red ones.
It's now hanging from the same burlap strip that the yellow one was--and I attached it using a small binder clip!
How's your 4th of July decorating coming? (To be honest, this is probably all I'll do--ha!)
