Two things that I’m pretty obsessed with lately (besides my son)…coffee & spray paint (obviously not together). I have always enjoyed a hot cup of joe, and lately I’ve been going spray paint crazy. So, why not put my favorites together with a little DIY project. Recently we switched our big coffee maker to (going back in time…) a percolator. It takes up less room, and we actually like the taste of the coffee better. Well, that left me with a bunch of coffee filters that we didn’t need. So I took my all time favorite spray paint colors (rose gold & baby pink) and decided to turn them into pretty paper flowers. LADIES, this one is definitely a keeper and guess what? I did this all within Johnny’s naptime, PLUS I had time leftover to get other things done (naptime & crafting). It’s a 20 minutes or less kind of DIY project. If you haven’t tried one of my DIY projects, this one is just for you!
What inspired me?
Well, a few months ago Johnny and I completed a craft called ‘ice painting” that I also used coffee filters for (basically it’s ice with food coloring mixed in). They turned out beautiful. So I decided why not just use spray paint.
My Color Pallete Inspiration
(P.S. If I could do my wedding over again, THESE would be my colors! source: blush and bow ties )
- coffee filters
- sticks (have your little one collect some for you) =)
- hot glue gun
- rose gold spray paint
- jute burlap ribbon
1.spray paint the coffee filters some with rose gold and some with pink.
2. Once the coffee filters are dried, roll them up so that they look like flowers. Follow the instructions in the picture below.
3. Take your hot glue gun and glue the coffee filter flowers onto a stick.
4.Then wrap the burlap ribbon around the bottom of the flowers.
That’s it! So many choices in how to display these beauties!
Here’s how I am using them in my home.
These also would be great for bridal showers, baby showers, weddings…basically any type of chic celebration!
Will you be creating this?
