Paper Wreath

Paper flowers made out of coffee filters are all the rage I noticed on blogs lately, and I wanted to try my hand at it too...
I was thrilled with the results!
I used Glimmer Mist to highlight half the "petals"
until I ran out
and then I switched to a green tea soak...
I knew a soft boa would accent beautifully!
I hung it up and sat to admire it and then figured I better get busy
making one for my daughter's home...
And I realized that a touch of glitter would only make it more
glamorous, so I took mine down to add the glitter to it too!
Have you tried your hand at coffee filter flowers yet?

  7. I've seen these coffee filter wreaths around blogland for a while, but have yet to try my hand at creating one for myself. After seeing your clever boa addition, I'm inspired to see what ideas I can come up with for glamorizing one of these beauties.
