DIY: Tea-Stained Coffee Filter Wreath

Design Dining + Diapers Tea-Stained Coffee Filter Wreath is just breath taking.  We love this idea for our decorations for the holidays!

Instructions:
1. Place 5 dark color tea bags into a large pot. Bring to boil and then place on low-medium heat.
2. Place 20 coffee filters into the pot and use a spoon to make sure they are fully submerged. Soak them for 10-20 minutes or until you get the color that you want. Repeat until all of the coffee filters are stained ( I used about 100 for this wreath).
I clipped the coffee filters onto pant hangers and hung them in the laundry room to help them dry faster. I also spread a few out on top of paper towels and that worked too.
3. Let the coffee filters dry completely so they are not as fragile.
4. Wrap the coffee filter around a screw driver and push it into the wreath. You may need to do a few extra jabs to really get it secure in there.
5. Place the coffee filters about 1-1 1/2″ a part (to get the fullness of this wreath).
Repeat until the wreath is completely covered and add some bling of your choice!
