I made this pretty and easy coffee filter garland for a recent Ladies Who Brunch that I hosted. The puffs are delicate and elegant. The garland can be customized to suit your special occasion and would look great at a wedding! I found that dipping them in multiple different colors created a soft ombre look.
Coffee Filter Garland
Adopted from Martha Stewart Weddings
Food coloring or powdered dye
Baker’s twine or fishing line
1. Squeeze several drops of food coloring into a bowl of water big enough to dip your coffee filters in or prepare your dye bath according to package directions. I suggest using rubber gloves, especially if you are using dye.
2. Dip coffee filters, multiple at a time, into the dye until they are saturated. I didn’t dip them all the way in and let the dye bleed up a little to give an ombre look. You can also dip in more than one color. Gently press the extra liquid out of them.
4. Stack 12-18 together, and connect the layers by pulling a needle and thread through the center. Use your fingers to fluff up the edges like rosettes.
5. String the puffs on fishing line or baker’s twine and tie knots on either side to keep them in place.
