I enjoyed making the wreath for the rainbow party so much, I knew I wanted to make one for Layla's art party as well. The rainbow wreath would have worked fine, but I wanted something different. And this one was FREE!
I started with coffee filters & a leftover frisbee. I have a bad habit of breaking the pot to my coffee maker on our cast iron sink. And when I go to replace it, they don't have replacement pots OR, the pot is as expensive as the coffee maker. So this last time, I got a 12 cup instead of a 4 cup. Since I had these small filters leftover, I used them.
I folded them in half, and then in half again. Then I used hot glue and attached them somewhat standing up.
Of course, a few inches from the end, I ran out of small filters. I didn't see the point in buying another pack of filters in a size I can't use, so I improvised with my larger filters. Which is why that spot on the top is a little wonky.
When it was finished, I watered down some acrylic paint and Layla & I splattered it on. No pictures of this as it was getting dark outside & kind of messy!
Here's that darn wonky spot again. I was originally going to leave it plain, until that spot happened. Then I thought I could hang it from a wide ribbon to hide it. But then I had another idea.
I added a tray of watercolor paint, some paint chips & a paintbrush.
I think it turned out pretty good! Hopefully I can get the rest of this party together quickly. Less than a week to go!
