Wake Up & Smell the Coffee

Top o' the mornin' to ya lassies! I've got something you're going to pour over so ch-ch-check it out! I know y'all love some DIY tricks and this one's cheap, fun, easy, and...thebomb.com.

It's what we'll call dyed coffee filter pom-poms! Let's talk moolah...for 10 bucks you can get 1,000 coffee filters! With some string and fabric dye you've got yourself a to-dye-for decoration!

Take a look at just what I mean...

Now let's talk How To! Mix a large bowl of warm water and powdered dye. Dip individual filters in the dye for varying amounts of time to make lighter and darker tones, hang on a line and let dry. As flirty side-effect the die gathers around the edges, giving it a vintage, floral effect (so awesome!). Punch a hole in each, gather 5 to 10 filters, tie in place and fluff!

You could complete an entire room for less than $100! Go ahead and say it...Holy Moly! So going along with the theme of today check out similar creations with cupcake liners. Oh so retro.

Now for my last hoorah...check out this bouquet of roses surrounded in...yep...coffee filters. Tell me it's awful, and I'll tell ya we are not on speaking terms.

So tomorrow morning, rather than grabbing your tall, non-fat, double, extra-hot, wet cappuccino head to Target, grab some coffee liners and get ta' craftin'! Love you lots ladies (and hopeful some gents)!

    Dania-Loove the vid!
    Libby-Pic two was dyed with a red dye and the brown was tea (tea bags soaked in water). Dye for 5-10 minutes and when you hang the color goes to the edges and causes that rose-tipped look! Drying takes a looong time so prepare for 24 hours!
