Easter Blessings

For easter this year my daughter Aysha and I decided to color coffee filters instead of eggs. I was cleaning out my cupboards and decided instead of trashing the old filters that no longer fit our coffee pot we would come up with a creative idea for them. First we tie-died the filters with food coloring and then let them dry over night. While slightly damp we twisted each filter into a beautiful flower shape. After twisting over 800 filters and filling my bed up with beautiful pastel roses our mission was not complete! Aysha decided to go find some sticks and create these gorgeous long stem paper roses for her grandmothers easter present. I took several and created garlands and the most gorgeous easter bonnet and bloomers a girl has ever seen! I hope you have fun looking at our easter creations this year! xo, Alys
