One of my girlfriends is getting married in two weeks. She has asked me to decorate. She states she loves my style. So this weekend while I dealt with the head congestion, raging sore throat, fever and fatigue, I worked on one of the pieces that will be set for the "stage" at the wedding.
I have never made one of those coffee filter wreaths, but have admired them. My cousin did a blog post about them through her "We Can Do It Cheaper" Inspirational Posts. You can see it here. Mine is a bit different not just because I used a cheaper wreath, but because it is bigger and I made mine more compact. My wreath is 18" here.
I tried to unwrap the plastic and ended up with pieces of the wreath going everywhere. I scratched that and covered it with the coffee filters folded in half.
I began affixing the coffee filters in a line around the inside and worked outward from there towards me.
A girlfriend texted me to see if I was resting and I sent her a picture of my lap view. Not resting but not working too hard as I sit indian style on the floor while I am house & dog sitting in Benbrook. This view is when its almost done. I was filling in the gaps and places that needed more "petals".
A birds eye view of the finished product now 24" and approximately 7 or so hours of work. Gorgeous! Absolutely gorgeous, if I may say so myself!!!
Dang, I think I wanna get married! This is so cool!!!
