Rose Valentine's Day Coffee Filter Tree

$5
Easy

I am a huge fan of coffee filters as a crafting medium. They are cheap, readily available and super versatile. I used them to make fun Valentine decor. Who can't use a shot of pink this time of year?

I dye my filters in a gallon ice cream bucket. It is round and just the right size. For this project, I used RIT Fuchsia dye and instant coffee crystals to create the muted rose colors.

I mix my dye and coffee crystals with the water in the ice cream bucket and let it soak at least 30 minutes. I remove the filters and let them drain over an upside down plastic container in my utility sink. Then I hang them to dry on a drying rack over night. Once dry, I fold each filter into fourths and twist the tip to hold. Then I just hot glue each filter to a cardboard cone from the craft store. I start at the bottom and work my around the cone and then up.

It makes a fun Winter decoration. You can use it in a vignette that says "Be Mine" or use it in a fun twist for Christmas. I love a piece of home decor that does double duty...
