And so the flower-making begins! We’re having a fun time with these coffee filters. We’ve used extra-large white filters for some really huge flowers, and some smaller white and unbleached filters for more standard-sized flowers. Plus, I’ve been dying some of the filters around the edges for some fun peach contrast.
For the dying, I simply combined a couple of drops of red food coloring, one drop of yellow, and a bit of alcohol. In my mind, anyway, it seemed like the alcohol would allow everything to dry faster. It seems to be working very nicely!
For drying, we strung up a temporary clothesline right over our work space. A few clothespins, and we were in business!
