and what do you do with 400 coffee filters?

On the first day of Spring Break I cleaned out the kitchen hutch and found over 400 coffee filters that we’re never going to use because we have an Aero Press.

I did a bit of searching on Pintrest and came across two tutorials to make coffee filter flowers (linked below) that looked uncomplicated enough for me to follow. After several attempts, and plenty of “help” from the kids, the result was a festive wreath.

Eventually, I’m going to find a working spray bottle and figure out how to dye these lovely flowers so they have a bit of color.
