I wanted to do something Christmas-y but not the usual evergreen, ornaments, gift wrap affair. I racked my brain some and came up with an idea- coffee filters! Cheap, disposable, and customizable.
I dyed some them different shades of blue; light and dark, and left some white.
I strung them in long strands using fishing wire and cut plastic straws to separate them. (FInd a full tutorial here)
It took a long time but was easy to do. I strung a few each night and was soon finished. The hardest part was getting them in my car without crushing them!
I hung them from a branch and strung twinkle lights behind them for added flair.
I also added a few metallic cup cake liners for added sparkle. I think it looks like wintery icicles. :)
Till next time friends!
