Dyed Coffee Filters
I have seen an awful lot of coffee filter flowers through Blogland lately including my own projects. I saw a fabulous wreath on a link party the other day that had the dyed coffee filter roses so I decided to attempt to color some of my own. Mind you, I have not done a project with them yet and this was just a cursory attempt to see if they would take color and guess what? The did. I used food coloring. I think for spring the colors will be great. Adjust your color by how much water you add. These were colored with one drop (yes, only one) to a third of a cup of water. I think I will go more pale when I do an actual project. Below I laid them next to a gauzy scarf I picked up at a yard sale today. They fit right in with the color tones of the scarf. Can't wait to try this for real.
