    Can the white filters be colored? If so , how would that be? I think I'd like to make one for Valentines Day. I'd like for it to be pink. I have a burgundy front door.

      I don't see why not. Try a little watercolor or water-based marker to change the color!

      I apologize for my delayed response. I've seen people color the filters. In my opinion its a TON of work for so little effect. I really haven't seen any colored filters that I can say I've liked. The color is usually so washed out. I will say though, that a white background on your burgundy front door would look amazing. Just use pink and red accents on the white wreath.

      White filters for other holidays would be great!

      I would think that with the little practice, you could spray paint the filters when you get them all on the wreath... just the edges would pick up the color. Our you could dry brush the edges with acrylic paints.

      Put some food coloring and a small amount of water in a shallow bowl, fold filters in 1/2 or 1/4's and sit in food coloring/water mix. The filters absorb the color. I have done this several times with wonderful results. Do allow a few hours for them to dry. Try it, you will enjoy the results.

      How about mixing your colorin a deep pan, and put the whole stack in and weight it down. Let it set ubtill the color is slightly darker that you want( it will dry lighter). If the color isn't even on all the filters, they would make a great tie-dyed or ombre design! The just spead the filters out to let them dry.

      There is a recipe for vivid color for your coffee filters. You use Rit dye. Found it on Pinterest! Red, white, and blue!

    I have made a Christmas wreath from these coffee filters and it takes wayyyyy more than 2 hours to hot glue the filters to the wreath. I then purchased the rusty mini elements from hobby lobby to coordinate with the natural color, placed burlap poinsttias, topped of with a burlap bow. I used about 2 packages of filters.
