Last year, my friend Susanna and I made painted coffee filter flowers (that's when my blog was just a few days old).
Ever since watching this Paolo Nutini video, I've wanted to make a white paper flower/tassel garland. So, I tried it this morning with coffee filters, and absolutely love the way it turned out. The best part about the coffee filters is they're pre-cut, and they have pretty, petal-like ruffles.
To make your own, all you need are white coffee filters - large industrial sized filters would be amazing - and white bakers twine. Cinch the filter at the center to create a "flower" and tie the string around the gathered bit. Repeat until you have the length you need. That's it!
Right now, this pretty garland is hanging by my bedroom window, reminding me that Spring is almost here! One day, I will have yards and yards of this garland at my wedding, creating a lovely canopy over the outdoor dance floor. It is so affordable (especially if you buy in bulk) and simple to make!
Hope you have a blessed Thursday, friends!
