It all started when my best friend sent me this link coffee filter wreath, I was obsessed. I HAD TO MAKE ONE. Ok sure, I might happen to say that about 99% of the things I see online but this time I ran right out and got the supplies and instead of letting them sit around so long I forgot what I bought them for (I'm not saying this has happened to me, and if it has, I will someday remember why it was so important that I bought liquid glycerin) nope this time I got started right away.
You can check her tutorial (and countless others online) for details so I won't bore you with those here again. I did get my filters at Costco where you can get about a zillion for hardly any money at all. I'm not sure how many I used, mine isn't as full as the one in the link above but I like it... I was also sick of burning my fingers and I knew as I made it that I was going to be making another for my mom. I also purchased the natural colored ones so that once the memory of burnt fingers is gone I can make one with them. You can also dye the paper filters, think of pink ones on a heart shaped wreath for Valentine's Day :)
Oh and yes, I do call him (no I'm not sure why it's a him, pretty much everything inanimate I decide is a him... I agree it's odd and we're just going to smile and nod and move on ok?) anyways, I call him Fluffy... and I smile & give him a little pet when I walk by. He's like a giant sugar coated donut, and who doesn't smile when they see donuts?
PS: yes there are more of those little fluffy flowers showing up in my posts again... and yes I do have them all over my house LOL I promise to do a quick post on those soon!
