Back in action!

Finally figured out how to fix my blog thanks to the wonderful help forum and people who know what they're doing :)

Here are some pictures of my coffee filter garland. First I tried spraying some with glimmer mist. They turned out cute but the color was only on the outside. You could still see the white middle. It didn't bother me too much, but for the amount of 'flowers' I was making it would just use up way too much of my beloved glimmer mist. Ok so on to plan B: food coloring. This worked perfectly!

First I filled my pot with warm tap water then added the food coloring. I let them soak for about a minute. Took them out and placed them on my 'holding' area. That way I could get a new batch soaking while I spread the other ones out.

Next I hung them out to dry.

Glued them together and ta-dah! Coffee filter garland. The coffee filters I bought turned out to be pretty big. The flowers are about 10" - 12" in diameter. Not sure where I am going to put them for my party but I knew they were a must. After my party I will post pics.
